The Missions Committee of the First Congregational Church of New Gloucester has invited Leslie Hyde, President of Yarmouth Cares About Neighbors (YCAN), to talk with interested church and community members after the church service on Sunday, April 2 at 10:45 am
Yarmouth Cares About Neighbors (YCAN) is an all-volunteer group of community-minded Yarmouth residents who provide support services to community members in need. Residents who do not have the means to purchase fuel needed to warm their homes during the winter, or sufficient food and clothing for their family, or for other critical needs, can find assistance from a number of programs that YCAN supports. Some of the programs offered include: Fuel Assistance, Food Pantry, Nutrition Closet, Lunch Crunch, Rides Program, Aging in Place, Holiday Program, Alzheimer’s Support, and Operation Bundle up.
The organization was founded in late 2008 by concerned citizens in Yarmouth, Maine with its mission to create a sustainable community organization that promotes the connection of resources with people who need them. Leslie Hyde, who is also an interfaith chaplain with the Yarmouth Police, will provide an overview of YCAN, its services, organization, and history. It will be a very informal gathering. All are welcome. Please come for some coffee and conversation.
