SOUTH PARIS — The staff at the Maine Veteran’s Home in South Paris, as part of their ongoing Community Involvement Committee, recently took up a collection of children’s and youth clothing for the Pink Feather Foundation in Oxford.
Several staff members of Maine Veterans’ Home in South Paris also stopped by the offices of Pink Feather Foundation and volunteered their time to help sort and organize donations.
The Pink Feather Foundation have partnered directly with local school teachers and collected gently used clothing to put on their free online “store.” Teachers can invite their student to sit with them and shop for clothes they like. Every item is free. It is completely anonymous. The package will be delivered to the office in nice packaging to encourage the feeling of receiving new clothes.
In addition to sharing their time, many staff members of the Maine Veterans Home collected new and gently used clothing that was donated to Pink Feather in an effort to give back to to the community, and brought in donations of clothing in order to meet a need. The home thanks all its staff members and residents who helped their community and the wonderful staff at the Pink Feather Foundation who are working so hard to serve children in their community.
