Bristol Area Lions donate
$500 to Caring for Kids

The Bristol Area Lions Club recently donated $500 to the Caring for Kids 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. The project also provides older teens and preteens with personal hygiene bags and the aforementioned items, as well as gift cards to local stores so they can purchase items in their style and size.

Over the past 26 years, the project has helped hundreds of local children and families with holiday needs. This has only been possible because of the 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. Donors receive information on each child, such as age, size, and any particular gift requests. Only this information is given to volunteers. Those who know of any child or family that could use services from Caring for Kids should please call 677-3300. All calls are kept confidential.

Anything one can contribute, financially or materially, would be greatly appreciated and help ensure all children in Bristol and South Bristol have a happy holiday. Checks may be payable to Caring for Kids, P.O. Box 412, New Harbor, ME 04554, a 501 (c) (3) non-profit.

To assist not only the Christmas project, but also the Caring for Kids weekend backpack healthy snacks program, 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’s fellowship hall.
