Everyone on our campus understands the importance of being an active part of the local and global community. We routinely mobilize our students and the whole of our Kents Hill community in actively making the world a better place through service and altruism.
Community Engagement Opportunities: Winter Break 2020
Together with our community partners, Kents Hill School proudly focuses on community engagement in our school and in our local community.
Below are some of Reverend Myung Park's current opportunities with Readfield United Methodist Church including a Mask Giving Tree, a Letter Writing opportunity, a Cookie Bake, and another Food Box creation option. Take a look, and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact her.
Due to COVID-19, Maranacook students are not able to gather and bake cookies for the Christmas food boxes this year. Thus, I am asking all who are able to bake a batch of cookies and package them up, 12 cookies per bag. Cookies are needed by Friday, December 18, 2020, so that they can be put in the food and kindness boxes on Saturday. Cookies can be dropped off at the church in the cooler by the side door or put in the freezer at the church.
Contact Susan Baker if you have any questions, firstname.lastname@example.org, 207-441-3920.
The next Kindness Food Box giveaway is December 19, 9:30-11:30 a.m. at the Jesse Lee Meeting House. Each month is theme-based, and you will notice a few different items this month. Some items are geared towards children's lunches, and some items such as candy and nuts may be used as stocking stuffers. With the Christmas spirit in mind, we are also hoping to include a fleece throw with each box. Let your Christmas spirit soar!
Partner with a friend or neighbor, fill the boxes, and add a throw blanket on top. Let's share some love and make Christmas a little brighter for our neighbors!
The food list is below. If you would like to contribute to the Kindness Food boxes but are unable to shop, monetary donations would be welcome.
This is the season of joy! Would you like to cheer someone up by sending a card? Your card can make someone feel connected, encouraged, and loved in these challenging times. You may become a card angel or Readfield United Methodist (RUMC) family and/or for the residents/staff at Gray Birth Rehab.
Readfield United Methodist Families
If you write a card to an RUMC family member, your card will be randomly sent to those who are on our caring list. Cards can be "thinking of you" or "Christmas Greeting" ones. Simply drop off your cards at the parsonage (1577 Main Street–the white house next to the church parking lot). There will be a drop off box on the front step of the parsonage.
Gray Birch Rehab
"Our peers, co-workers, and family members are in the trenches battling a large COVID-19 outbreak at Gray Birch Rehab and Long-term Care in Augusta. Our hearts are aching for the residents who are ill, the residents who are lonely and confined to their rooms, the staff who are ill, and the staff who are working in ways they never imagined. We would like to ask the community (near and far) to help us support this facility and everyone inside it by taking a few moments to send greeting or holiday cards as below:
1. A "get well" or "thinking of you" card for any resident who is ill with COVID-19
2. A "holiday cheer" card for any resident who is not ill but is confined to their room,isolated from family, likely scared, and relying on staff for their emotional needs.
3. A "thank you" card, card of support, or even something humorous to boost the morale and energy of the staff who is working tirelessly.
Please address them generically to any patient who is ill, any patient who is well, staff in general or by department (therapy, nursing, management, cleaning, dietary, etc). The address is Rehabilitation & Long Term Care,37 Gray Birch Drive, Augusta, ME 04330.
Sewing angels are invited to make masks that will be put in individual ziplock bags and labeled for an adult or child. Each bag will then be hung on the tree in front of Readfield United Methodist Church for the community to pick up. This is a wonderful Christmas gift for our neighbors and friends, and a great way to keep our community healthy. Masks can be dropped off at Readfield United Methodist Church during the month of December. You will find a donation box at the side door of the church.
Today, Monday, January 18, is Martin Luther King Jr. Day (MLK Day) and as such, our students are shifting from their normal academic programming to a special group of programs steeped in the ideas of civil rights, protesting, culture, bias, racism, and overall history. MLK Day does not exist in a vacuum, though we understand it may seem that way if one is receiving their information via social media alone.
