POP-UP GIFT DRIVE RECAP 2022

Portside gave back this Holiday season with our annual Pop-Up Gift Drive. This year’s Pop-Up Gift Drive was another success with so many donations! With three Portside Offices serving as drop locations for donations, we were able to collect items for our very deserving beneficiaries.

Our Beneficiaries:

My Place Teen Center is where they nurture, inspire, and safeguard at-risk teens, many of whom have nowhere else to go. With steely resolve and a passion for grit and accountability, they keep kids safe, fed, loved, and show them a different path.  They are a year-round, free, out-of-school program for all youth, from any locale, ages 10-18.

The Maine Children’s Home Christmas Program aims to share joy and winter warmth with kids and families throughout Maine during what can be a stressful time for many.  Through this program, 1,500 children and their families are provided with tools for play, connection, and comfort this holiday season. 

Portside Pop-Up Holiday Drive donations consisted of: 

  • Clothing + personal care items such as: shoes, hats, mittens and boots, skincare products, and hair accessories. 
  • Gifts and toys such as: various children's toys, activity supplies and electronics. 

Portside volunteer committee members were: 

  • Anne Banfield
  • Ashley Kellogg
  • Carly Chasse
  • Catie Seavey
  • Eliza Rauscher
  • Holly Hacskaylo
  • Jennifer Tabb

Thank you to MiBox for once again providing us with storage boxes for all three of our locations!
