Making Christmas Merrier for over 12,000 children in Downeast Maine since 1984!
Many children in Downeast Maine (through no fault of their own) will go without this Christmas.
The reasons for this vary--unemployment, struggling single parents, unexpected bills, sickness, and in some cases, neglect.
Whatever the reason, these children deserve a bright spot during their Christmas season.
Let's All Have A Merrier Christmas was started in 1984 by a group of concerned citizens from local churches and other individuals who realized the need of many children in this area.
This program is designed to provide a new toy and a warm outfit to children who will receive little (or in some cases, nothing) for Christmas.
There have been some very touching moments during the past 33 years.
Calls have already started coming in from schools, organizations, and concerned community members who realize the need of some children in our area.
The 34th Annual Let's All Have A Merrier Christmas needs your help.
Fliers are being sent out, people are being contacted, and volunteers are being lined up. We have a LOT of work to do!
It was people like you who helped make a little over 600 children's Christmas a little merrier last year. Over $30,000 worth of toys, warm clothing, bedding, and even Christmas ham dinners were delivered to excited little girls and boys in Downeast Maine. Thank you!
We are making a request to our faithful supporters. Your donation will help us to get a head start on this monumental, but definitely worthwhile project. We are expecting an even greater need this year than last.
If you would like to help by donating new clothing, toys, or a gift of money (to go toward the purchase of these items), please contact or mail your donation to:
