In the month of July, The Kennebec Valley Chapter of Credit Unions will hold its annual “Christmas in July” fundraiser, in which participating credit unions collect clothing, shoes, toys, art supplies and more. (To view the participating credit unions and a list of items they are collecting, visit .)
We are asking our members to donate newly-purchased gifts as well as cash donations for the MCHLW’s “Christmas Packing Program”. The program requires donations year-round, as it provides boxes of gifts and clothing to more than 1,700 financially disadvantaged children throughout the state. Ideally, packing needs to be completed by the first week of December, so the Maine Children’s Home relies on continuous donations in the slower summer months to ensure that every child receives their gifts on time.
In order to qualify, families must meet state income guidelines, agree not to accept Christmas assistance from any other organization unless it is for food, apply for children who are 12 years old and younger, and be willing to provide proof of income. They usually begin accepting applications on their website in October.
We understand no one really wants to think about Christmas in July, but know that when December rolls around, there will be smiles on the faces of many children who will feel the impact of your generosity regardless of when you donated their gift.

Study after study has shown how music education produces not only better, more diligent students, but also more well-rounded citizens. Music teaches:

How much food would you give to your child if he or she was hungry? If you are a parent, like many are, the answer is simple. You give until your child(ren) are well-fed and healthy. Imagine the parents who cannot afford to feed their children. It’s not an easy image to conjure up because it’s hard to think about a child being hungry.
