WORKCAMPNE
February 7, 2011

During the past five years I have had the pleasure of coordinating the needs of several Kennebunkport families with the staff and volunteers of Workcamp NE. several times.They are a blessing for our low income seniors and handicapped residents. Because of their effort ,these individuals are able to remain in their homes. The volunteers installed new windows, roofs, ramps and bathroom railings. They replaced rotten siding and painted up homes. All at no cost to our residents.
More importantly is the bond of friendship that has been established. My seniors refer to them as "MY kids" All still display photoes. Some still receive cards and notes just to keep in touch. I look forward to working with this organization. Our residents continue to ask "Are they coming back- even for a visit?" In this day of so much negativity especially concerning our youth- Workcamp NE is an example that there is positivity and caring still in our society.
