Upcycle Boutique – You Did It!

You Did It!

COS’s 5th Annual Upcycle Boutique last Sunday raised $5000 in much-needed funding that we can now share with our neighbors in need!

We had a terrifically fun afternoon shopping and snacking, and are extremely grateful to our guests, to the many community members and retailers who donated fabulous finds, and of course to our wonderful sponsors, without whom this event would not have been possible.

A huge thank you to Weirs Buick GMC for once again hosting us in their spacious showroom, and for helping out in myriad other ways both leading up to the event and during the afternoon. (We commandeered their conference room for a week and they even sent out staff to pick up donations!) They really went above and beyond for us.

Kohl’s not only sponsored our event but sent over volunteers to help us set up on Sunday! Their merchandising skills were a great asset in showcasing the amazing designer clothing, bags and jewelry for our shoppers.

Texas Grace Kitchen kept our guests well-fueled and happy with their superb food and beverages, which they graciously donated. (If they left you hungry for more of their fun fare, check out some photos and get in touch with David at texasgracekitchen.com.)

We are also very grateful to our friends at Farm + Table, Jenn Stonehouse at Franklin American Mortgage, Terrapin Landscapes, and Hazelwood Handyman for helping us to help our community. Funds raised through our sponsors’ support will feed, clothe and warm both the homes and hearts of our neighbors in the coming year.

And, last but not least, our crew of dedicated volunteers were instrumental in making the Upcycle Boutique such a huge success. We love being part of this kind and generous community!

Mildred L. Day School Food Drive

COS wants to thank the students of Mildred L. Day School for such a successful Food Drive. We were taken back by the organization and presentation, the spirit of the students and the whole event. You are to be commended for a job well done!

We are pleased to report that the poundage of food this year exceeded last year’s amount. The school students raised 1,644 pounds of food! On behalf of COS, we thank you and every teacher and student that made this Food Drive for COS such a huge success! This food will be very much appreciated and needed by the neighbors we serve.

KHS Peer Helpers Donation to Community

During the last week of September, Kennebunk High School held a food drive to benefit Community Outreach Services. Spearheaded by Peter Lazos and the Peer Helpers group, they collected 214 pounds of food and $2,172.58. They are an outstanding example of how young people can successfully get involved in the community and make a difference. We applaud them for their organizing skills, communication skills, and effort. We have such great young people in this community and we wish them the best during this school year. If you know one of these kids, tell them how thankful you are for their contribution. Keep up the great work students, you give us great hope for the next generation!
