KINDNESS BEGINS WITH YOU!

 

 

 

 

 

Mark your calendar for the 2nd Annual Family Service Night

Friday, April 20th

Intermediate School Gym

 

 

Various local organizations will be setup in the gym where parents and students will work together to complete a service project, learn about the organization and discover how your family can stay involved with the organization after the event.  All activities are suitable for students in grades K-5!

  

Participating organizations include, The Ronald McDonald House, The IOCP, The Family Partnership, Orono Healthy Youth, Local Food Shelves, Doing Good Together, Pinky Swear and More!  Come to learn more about each organization and how your family can help make a difference in our community.

 

Please consider bringing a gently used book to donate to Read Indeed, a local charity started by an Orono student that has donated more than one million books to children around the world!
