Local group travels to rural Maine to help those in need

Nine people traveled to rural Maine this September, as part of a group organized by the Raymond Village Community Church in Raymond, to assist with home improvements that will keep at-risk families safe and warm this winter. 

The group volunteered through the Maine Seacoast Mission’s Housing Rehabilitation Program, which assists at-risk families by restoring or completely rebuilding up to 20 homes annually. 

This is the fifth year they have volunteered through the Maine Seacoast Mission. The work they accomplished this year included: cleaning out a homeowner’s attic so it could be insulated, cleaning out a basement, painting a wooden floor, relocating a donated shed, and working in the Mission’s food pantry.
