AIO by the Numbers
St. Peter’s representative on the AIO Board, writes that the Area Interfaith Outreach (AIO) served 301 families, representing 773 people in June. This is down from May and is normal — as the weather becomes warmer, assistance with heating and electricity bills decline.
The AIO food pantry, though, always needs soups (Progresso is great), pasta, pasta sauce, and cereals. Keep forgetting to bring your cans? Money is actually the single most useful donation. With money the AIO is able to purchase milk, yogurt, and butter, and provides emergency vouchers for utilities. You can find out how to donate by visiting the AIO Website HERE and following the “Donate” tabs. You can read Ron’s full report by clicking HERE. He also wants to direct your attention to a recent and powerful Story on Maine Public Radio, whose picture we have used above. You can read and listen to that by clicking HERE
