Bristol Area Lion Bill Byrnes presents the Bristol Area Lions Foundation donation to Caring for Kids President and Executive Director Jenny Pendleton.

 The Bristol Area Lions Club recently donated $500 to the Caring for Kids Christmas Project. This year they are celebrating their 25th year of the Christmas Project.  Each year the project has provided Bristol and South Bristol children with full sets of winter gear, complete outfits, books, toys and much more.  They also provide older teens and pre-teens with personal hygiene bags and the above items, as well as gift cards to local stores so they can purchase items in their style and size. As we are nearing the holiday season once again, it’s time to reach out to the two communities to help ensure these children have a very happy holiday! 

Over the past 25 years the project has helped hundreds of local children/families with holiday needs.  This has only been possible because of their wonderful supporters that believe in helping the community.  Groups, businesses and individuals are encouraged to adopt a child or a whole family to shop for.  Caring for Kids keeps everything confidential, names are never given out. Each family is assigned a number, and they receive information on each child, such as age, size, and any particular gift requests. Only this information is given to volunteers.  Anything you can donate, create, or provide for this project is greatly appreciated.  

Anything one can contribute, financially or materialistic, would be greatly appreciated and help ensure all children in Bristol and South Bristol have a happy holiday. Checks may be mailed to Caring for Kids, P. O. Box 412, New Harbor, ME 04554. Donations of clean used clothing in good condition may be dropped off Monday or Saturday at the Once Again Shop located downstairs in the Congregational Church of Bristol Fellowship Hall. Caring for Kids is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit. 

If you know of any child or family that could uses services from Caring for Kids, please call 677-3300.  All calls are kept confidential.
