SANTA PROJECT: The Parkman Grange is again participating in the Santa Project for SAD 4, administered by Penquis. Each eligible child will get a winter coat, boots, socks and a toy. Angel trees will be set up at KC store in Parkman and Community Fitness in Guilford if you would like to sponsor a child. Boxes will also be set up for a sock drive. A great gift idea for that person who has everything is to participate in this program in that person’s name. Another way to help is if you enjoy making toys, a little child will appreciate sewing or knitting your handcrafted items.

Calls for help should be received prior to Friday, December 5th to ensure a donor can be found in time for Christmas delivery. Those interested in supporting the Corinna Giving Tree with gifts or monetary donations should call either of the above numbers.
