Cinderella Project of Maine to hold prom dress giveaways in January and April this year

January 9th, 2019

The Cinderella Project of Maine is proud to announce that it will be holding prom dress giveaways in both Belfast and Gardiner again this year—however, the two locations will offer the giveaways at different times of year.

The Gardiner giveaway will be earlier this year and will be on Sunday, January 20 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Gardiner Area High School in Gardiner. There will not be a giveaway in Gardiner in April.

The Belfast giveaway will be in April, with the exact date and location to be announced closer to the giveaway date. There will not be a Belfast giveaway in January.

Gowns are free to all Maine high school students in need of a dress for prom with one stipulation – that they promise to pay the favor forward in some way by doing something nice for someone else in their community.

If you or someone would like to donate a dress to the Cinderella Project of Maine, it’s not too late. Dresses are accepted all the way up until the day of the last giveaway. Dress donations are accepted at any Day’s Jewelers store in the State of Maine. For additional dress drop off locations, visit www.cinderellaprojectofmaine.org/donations.

For more information, contact Amanda Simmons at 338-6809 or visit The Cinderella Project of Maine at www.cinderellaprojectofmaine.org or on Facebook. The Cinderella Project of Maine is a project of Waldo Community Actions Partners, a private 501(c)(3) non-profit located in Belfast, Maine. Your donations are tax deductible.

Boy Scout donates 5 refurbished laptops to WCAP for families in need

June 18th, 2017

 

Ben Dargon, a student at Waldo County Technical Center (WCTC), decided to combine his love for technology with his desire to do good for the community, by developing an avenue for laptops refurbished by WCTC Computer Careers students to be made available for free to Waldo County families and individuals who aren’t able to afford a computer.

 

Dargon decided to approach Waldo Community Action Partners about his idea as part of his Eagle Scout project. He and some of his fellow Boy Scouts from Troop #34 dropped off five refurbished Macbook laptops as part of the project. His hope is that WCAP and Waldo County Tech Center will be able to carry on the partnership that he generated in order to continue connecting Waldo County households with low incomes with refurbished laptops in the future.

 

Laptops will be distributed through WCAP’s Case Management program to individuals in the community with barriers to technology preventing them from excelling in school or obtaining a job.
