The Mt. Abram Health Center staff would like to say thank you to the people of Kingfield and surrounding communities who donated to their Thanksgiving Food Drive.  The health Center received 113 pounds of food donations and reached the goal of providing five complete Thanksgiving dinners to local families in need.

“The community really showed their generosity this year through food and monetary donations,” said Sherra Osgood, Practice Manager.  “We sincerely appreciate the thoughtfulness of our patients and community members during the holiday season.”

Many individuals also donated money, which will be used to stock and replenish the health center’s onsite food closet throughout the upcoming year.  Patients are encouraged to visit and use the food closet anytime the Health Center is open.

For many families and individuals in Franklin County, food insecurity is a harsh reality that must be faced 365 days a year. If you would like to support Mt. Abram Regional Health Center’s ongoing effort to keep their food closet stocked, please consider a cash or nonperishable food donation.
