Food Drive2015

Winter in Maine can be challenging.  Especially for those who have to make a choice between buying food, heat or medication.

The Sixth Annual Hancock County Food Drive continues right through March 31st, so there is still time for you to drop off food donations.

The Star 97.7 live broadcast at Friends & Family Market in Ellsworth Falls was great fun!  We want to once again thank our broadcast sponsors:  Bud Connection Flowers & Fine Chocolates, Courtland Living & Rehabilitation Center and Friends & Family Market.  Plus, many thanks to “Healthy Acadia” and their partners for planning such a successful event.

Here’s how you can help!  To donate, text FeedME2017 to 41444, or mail a check to: United Way of Eastern Maine, 700 Main Street, Suite 1, Bangor, ME 04401.   Below are all the locations in Hancock County where you can drop off food donations.
