Portside's 1% for Maine initiative has amazing news!
We have donated $10,000 each to both the Boys and Girls Club of Southern Maine, and Greater Portland Family Promise!
Boys and Girls Club of Southern Maine: These funds go to support re-engagement of members not served by in-person programming during the pandemic and expand wellness programming for these members.
Prior to the pandemic Boys and Girls Club of Southern Maine was serving 500 kids per day, since the pandemic hit they have only been able to serve around 300 - 350 kids per week. So, these funds will go to finding ways to re-engage the community to continue their work in giving kids a safe place to be after school.
