Open Hands, Open Heart would like to thank all the people who have donated items with the intent of helping families in our local communities. Because of your donations, we have been very successful.
I do want to ask for your help again regarding donations. Because of liability, we are no longer able to except any baby furniture such as high chairs, strollers, anything a baby sits in. The only items we will now be excepting are children’s clothing ( gently used and clean ) children’s books,videos and stuffed animals.
I ask that you PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DO NOT DROP OFF ADULT CLOTHING OR LEAVE DROP OFFS AT THE DOOR. We are open Tuesday-Thursday 9:30-11:15. Drop offs are excepted at that time. If this is not a time that works for you, please take the items to Goodwill. Please do not leave out in the weather!!
Thank you for your cooperation,
I would like to thank Mrs. Collins and her second grade class, along with Mrs Indorf and her first grade class, at Young School for doing a mitten and hat drive for Open Hands, Open Heart. Because of their help, we are well on our way to keeping children warm for the upcoming winter. It’s nice to see young people with the spirit of giving.
Open Hands, Open Heart would like to get a shoutout to Saco & Biddeford Savings for their generous donation. Thank you Amanda Lutz for bringing this to us. It was nice to finally get to meet you.
