Mission 2018 Christmas Wish List Now Available

CHERRYFIELD, ME — The Maine Seacoast Mission is gearing up again for the 2018 Christmas season. We could not brighten Christmas for the people in our communities without your generosity.

To ensure donations will arrive in time for Christmas 2018 they must be here no later than December 10, 2018. Donations arriving after Dec. 10 will be saved for Christmas 2019.

Please direct all donations to the Mission’s Downeast Campus in Cherryfield.

Maine Seacoast Mission Christmas Program
6 Weald Bethel Lane
PO Box 428
Cherryfield, ME 04622

Our office in Bar Harbor is for sale. We are not receiving Christmas gifts at that address this year.

Here is our suggested 2018 Christmas Wish List. The Wish List is also available for downloading and distribution in PDF format. Click Here. We like to stick to traditional, imagination powered toys, basic clothing, and personal care items. We try also to be good environmental stewards with a less-is-more approach to gifts and packaging.

With limited storage space gift cards are especially helpful. They. also allow us to buy items in short supply or to ensure, for example, a pair of boots fits.

Many elderly people receiving Christmas gifts are in nursing homes. Basic and practical items are very welcome, i.e. lap robes, nightwear, toiletries, puzzle books, or music.

Please get in touch with me if you have any questions about our 2018 Christmas season arrangements. Call me at 207-546-5867 or send me an email at [email protected]

IMPORTANT: Please include your full name and address on any package or letter you send us so we can properly acknowledge them.
