You can bring these items to the church and we will take them to St. Saviour’s in Orono. Rev. Augusto is at St. Saviour’s every Tuesday from 10:00 to 12:00, and you can also take the items there directly during those two hours. The address is 23 Mill Street in Orono.
Rev. Augusto is also looking for some volunteers to organize and bag the donations on Wednesday April 20th, and some volunteers to drive the donations to the farms and drop them off on Thursday, April 21st. If you can volunteer for either of those tasks, please contact him.
