Where's Wendy?

Where's Wendy?

This is my favorite time of year. Soon the leaves will be changing and it will get cooler out. What is really exciting though is the start of the football season! No, I don't play football or even take part in a fantasy league, but I think its an awesome sport to watch. Saturday night I had the opportunity to watch the University of Maine Black Bears play against Bryant at the Alfond Stadium. My friends and I tailgated before the game and I was happy to see how many Maine fans came out for the first game of the season. The Black Bears didn't disappoint, winning the game 28-13. If you are ever in the mood to watch some football, check out a game. 

CWC Angels Donates to Food Cupboards

CWC Angels Donates to Food Cupboards

The end of summer brings another tradition with it!  The CWC Angels School Store!  This summer, over 230 children were served with this school supply and clothing distribution program.  Everything from backpacks to socks and glue sticks to binders.  Through donations year round, the school store is stocked with brand new items to help all kids feel ready for the first day of school. 

The shoppers do have some responsibility placed on them too!  In order to earn "CWC bucks", the kids are encouraged to do extra chores, help others and get caught "doing good".  An extra $1 is earned just by bringing in a non-perishable food item.  This year about 200 food items were donated.  The Partnership Food Pantry and Hampden Food Cupboard were the recipients of this years donations.

Thanks to all who helped at the School Store!

July 13, 2011 - KENNEBUNK, ME.  As children and adults throughout Maine enjoy a well deserved summer vacation, the United Way of York County and several community partners are thinking ahead to make sure that children enter the new school year ready to learn, equipped with the tools they need to succeed, by joining a statewide effort to provide donated items such as backpacks, calculators, pens, pencils, rulers and composition notebooks to children unable to afford them. 

“One of our primary goals at United Way is to create and support efforts that help children and youth meet academic milestones and graduate on time,” says Kathryn Davis, President and CEO of United Way of York County.
