Thanks to our volunteers who covered our seven sites throughout Washington County--
The Machias Motor Inn, V.L. Tammaro in Calais, Raye's Mustard Mill in Eastport, Bayside Market in Milbridge, Church's Hardware and Hamilton Marine in Jonesport, and Down East Credit Union in Baileyville and Flat Iron Corner in Lubec.
We collected $12 donations for the purchase of a turkey. Some people gave $12 or more dollars..others gave less but that generosity adds up!
All of the donations will be distributed as gift certificates to all Washington County food pantries.
