19th Annual Pet and People Walk Benefits the Center for Grieving Children
The Maids of Portland, Maine would like to thank all of our generous customers and employees who sponsored us in the 19th Annual Pet & People Walk. We raised a total of $380.00 to benefit the Center for Grieving Children! A little rain didn't put a damper on this fun day of face painting, games, pet contests and music. By raising money for The Center, we contributed to helping over 3,500 children, teens and adults each year who find loving support through their programs.
The Center for Grieving Children's mission is to provide loving support to grieving children, teens, families and the community through peer support, outreach and education. They honor and encourage the safe expression of grief and loss by providing a loving community that fosters the discovery and development of each child's own resiliency and emotional well being.
Understanding that when a loved one dies is often a difficult time financially, the Center does not charge fees for its services. Otherwise, the Center relies on private individual donations, foundation grants, United Way, and special events.
We at The Maids would like to thank you for your support for such a worthy cause! And thank you for helping The Center to be a beacon of light in the hearts and souls of grieving children throughout the world.
