Mobilize Katahdin’s steering team and volunteers have been busy this week as we continue to build a network to aid and assist local residents from the Katahdin Region with the needs they have arising from the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
Volunteers – Thanks to a generous donation of homemade face masks from Louise Ellis-Grant, Barbara Binotto and Shel Sherman, we now have face masks for each of you when making deliveries or fulfilling requests. These have been distributed so please let me know if you are still in need of a face mask and one will be provided to you. This effort was accomplished within 48 hours of the need being identified so thank you ladies for your generosity and quick response!
I’d also like to give a big THANK YOU to a local Millinocket family for their generous donation and delivery of seasoned, split firewood, and to Millinocket Elks Lodge #1521 for their commitment to purchase paper products and cleaning supplies for those in need of these items. We appreciate each donation received to date, and look forward to seeing what the community will continue to do. You can donate to our fund here, or on our website at www.mobilizekatahdin.org.
What We Accomplished Last Week . . .
- We’ve added new features to the Mobilize Katahdin website. Local agencies and non-profits may now apply for assistance with Mobilize Katahdin for needs they encounter, or to enable them to continue assisting others during the COVID-19 pandemic.
- A communications sub-committee is being formed to work on informing local residents of the assistance offered by Mobilize Katahdin, and to share information and resources throughout the Katahdin Region.
- Assistance with the delivery of medicine and food throughout the entire Katahdin Region from Millinocket to Island Falls was among the services provided by Mobilize Katahdin volunteers
Spread the word to your friends, family and neighbors to contact Mobilize Katahdin with any request for assistance they may have, like and share us on Facebook, call us at (207) 370-1581 or visit our website for up-to-date information.
