Thanks to everyone who contributed to our collection of children's clothing, stuffed animals, books, and other items throughout the month of July, for Open Hands Open Heart, in Saco. Susan Caldwell and Tim Watson dropped off the collection box on the morning of August 14th, and the volunteer on duty was very grateful. She gave them a tour of the facility, which is laid out like a store. Clothing is organized according to size, and there's areas for shoes, socks and underwear, videos, books, and stuffed animals.

Open Hands Open Heart is an outreach program located next to the Saco Food Pantry, on Ocean Park Road, in Saco. The organization was founded by Elaine Fournier in 2008. It's mission is to provide clothing and other items for needy children in York County. For more information, or to make a donation, click here.
