Maine Children’s Home Newsletter

Send warm clothes and toys
At the Maine Children’s Home for Little Wanderers (MCH), we believe giving toys and games through our Christmas Program is important for teaching trust and building connectedness in Maine families. We also know that many Maine families are in need of basic essentials, such as socks, underwear, and warm clothing in all sizes. This is why our Christmas Program is about more than toys!

We need your help right now to provide 1,700 Maine children with items on this Urgent Needs list. Can Maine kids count on you?

Because of you, hundreds of youth and families got the help they needed this month through our programs. From telehealth counseling, to a regular schedule and support on campus for teen parents and their babies, to a warm pair of slippers for the Christmas Boxes and so much more. Help is here because of many supporters, partners and donors – just like you.

In gratitude,
Richard Dorian | Executive Director
