We rely on the kindness of our giving neighbors to keep our doors open. For every dollar you donate, we are able to purchase up to $8 worth of food. Your dollars go far with MCHPP! Please note that if you choose to give online, 2.9% of your donation plus $.30 goes to processing of these donations by Amazon. We are working with Amazon to assist in our online donations due to their dedication to customer service, their support of the non-profit sector, and their low donation processing fees (our previous partner charged 4.5%!). MCHPP is a 501-c-3 nonprofit organization, donations are deductible per IRS regulations.
Check donations can be dropped off during office hours or mailed to us (see sidebar information to the right). Checks can be made out to “MCHPP” or “Mid Coast Hunger Prevention Program”.
Organize a food drive at your school, church, business or in your neighborhood! Food drives are easy, fun and a great way to support people in need in our community. We make it easy for you by helping to arrange pick up, creating flyers to advertise your event and sharing lists of “much needed” food and personal care items. Call Doreen Nardone, Food Bank Coordinator at 729-8647 ext.18 to learn about hosting a food drive today! To get involved on a regular basis as a volunteer or find our more about our special event volunteer opportunities, please call us at 207-725-2716 or email us at [email protected]
