Community Food Drive to Benefit Community Outreach Services
The Kennebunkport Heritage Housing Trust and Habitat for Humanity will be partnering together to host a Community Food Drive during the month of December from December 1, 2021- December 31, 2021 to benefit Community Outreach Services (COS) Find out how you can participate below!
Why a Community Food Drive? We believe that access to consistent food and safe housing are basic human rights. For many in Maine and right here within our three towns, the lack of either or both is a very real problem. While the missions of the KHHT and Habitat for Humanity focus on creating affordable housing, we also believe in the value of strong, thriving communities. For many, housing related costs are often the largest expenses that households can have; and the risk and likelihood of individuals and families experiencing food insecurity is greater for those who cannot access affordable, safe housing. We know there can be far reaching effects- on school participation, work performance, and on physical and mental health- when adults and children worry about where they will sleep or when they will have their next meal. With your help, we can make a difference by supporting our communities this Winter season.
