Maine’s Positive Story of the Day ~ Mapleton Elementary School ~
The students at Mapleton Elementary are pretty well-known for their Mapleton Mile (which raised $12,500 in the spring of 2022) fundraiser for the group C-A-N-C-E-R, but they have been doing a lot more for this group throughout the past 15 years. One of the things they do is collect items for the clinic bags put together for patients beginning their treatment journey in local hospitals. They are finishing up one of these drives this week – a collection of travel-size toiletries, puzzle books, tissues, etc. that allows the C-A-N-C-E-R Board to use monetary donations to go directly to patients going through treatment in the local area.
