Piscataquis Santa Needs Helpers

Piscataquis Santa Needs Helpers

December has arrived in Piscataquis County and many holiday festivities are planned to make the season a little merrier, especially for the children. With 435 requests received, the Piscataquis Santa Project elves are busy working to grant each of the children's wishes.
 
Sheree Brown, project Coordinator says, "Despite the harsh economy, the community has really stepped up this year. Project friends, like folks at the Piscataquis Pomona Grange, the Piscataquis Regional YMCA, the Mountain View Youth Development Center, and Rowell's Garage, have made it possible for many children to wake up with gifts on Christmas morning."  But, according to Brown, there are still more than 50 children with wishes to be granted. They are looking for people to sponsor a child and grant his or her wishes.
 
Bringing the spirit of Christmas to a child is easy and it can be done from a computer.
