Three Rivers Kiwanis Secret Santa Program will brighten the holidays for children in need
MILO — Three Rivers Kiwanis has been running the Secret Santa Program for many years and it is the largest program the organization runs annually. Kiwanis members purchase clothing, shoes and gifts according to need for children up to age 16 who live in the SAD 41 district communities of Atkinson, Brownville, LaGrange and Milo. Kiwanians typically spend between $50 and $75 per child.
Applications will be available through Friday, Dec. 1 at the elementary schools, the Milo Town Hall or Brownville Town Office. Participating families will be contacted after Dec. 11 for a pickup appointment on Dec. 16.
Community members can help by considering adopting one or more children whose family has asked for help. Also, hats, scarves, mittens or gloves in various sizes are always needed. All items purchased must be delivered by Dec. 9.
Please contact Bonnie at 943-5645 to make arrangements for shopping or donating items. If that doesn’t work, a financial donation to the program is always helpful and should mailed to PO Box 143, Milo, ME 04463.
