Catholic Charities of Maine is looking for volunteers for a telephone reassurance program, which pairs volunteers with seniors for a check-in call. Interested people can apply online at ccmaine.org/volunteer or call 523-1154 for more information.
The Scarborough Food Pantry is open, and visitors are being offered drive-through curbside service during regular operating hours. For the health and safety of the volunteers and patrons, no one is allowed inside the pantry at this time. Please contact the pantry before doing a food drive, setting up a collection box, or making a donation of food. Food donations will be needed, but unscheduled drop-in visits from donors are temporarily suspended. The offers to help and the generosity of the community are very much appreciated; gifts of money and grocery gift cards are the best ways to help us right now.
