The Spirit of the Community

The Rig in Camden was established by older teens as place to "hang art, make music, talk about things that matter, sometimes with adults, sometimes not." A grant from the community foundation’s Knox County Fund helped launch the space. The fund is marking its 20th anniversary of grantmaking this year. In honor of the anniversary, an anonymous donor has offered a $20,000 challenge grant to help build the fund. Photo courtesy of Penobscot Bay Pilo

Teaming Up for Food Pantries

The second annual Hancock County Food Drive is underway, with 112 organizations collecting for pantries in the region. In addition, the United Way of Eastern Maine and Maine Community Foundation are providing a one-dollar match for every food item donated, up to $10,000.

The University of Maine Cooperative Extension has posted a list of food drop-off sites throughout the county. The list is updated daily.

A Star is Born

The Kittery Community Center, opened last May, has quickly become a hub of area activities, from after-school programs to performances in the Star Theatre. Grants from the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation and the Maine Community Foundation helped support completion of the center. Here, community foundation board member Peter Lamb gets a tour of the new facility. Photo: Rich Beauchesne, Seacoast Online
