ACT NOW Community Food Drive.png

Arundel Conservation Trust 2021 Food Drive

Join us for our second annual Food Drive in partnership with Community Outreach Services. We will be collecting highly needed items to help families get through this difficult season! We have surpassed the one-year mark since the global pandemic but the need for basic essentials is still prevalent in our community. Together we can help offer some relief to our friends and neighbors. 

 

The ACT Food Drive will be taking place May 28th - June 9th, 2021 in partnership with Community Outreach Services.

 

 

You can drop off non-perishable items in a designated container at the Aundel Town Hall, Arundel Fire Station, Transfer Station or at the Welch Woods trail head. Volunteers will be regularly picking up these items from each site. A full list of needed foods is listed below.

 

The food drive will serve individuals and families in the towns of Arundel, Kennebunk, and Kennebunkport, Maine. This is an urgent need for so many families and residents as the pandemic stretches on. Your help is needed now and is deeply appreciated! These are the times when we can all come together to help and support oneanother other.
