Maine’s Positive Story of the Day ~ Caribou Community School ~
Northern Maine winters can be pretty brutal, especially for some families as they do their best to dress their children for winter. Caribou Community School has been blessed to be part of such a giving community. Recently, two local groups made significant donations that were designed to keep our children warm.
First, our friends from Plourde & Plourde Inc. donated 40 plus winter jackets to CCS through a program they created called Coats for Kids Cruise. Coats for Kids Cruise had its first annual benefit ride in September and the money raised was used to buy these wonderful jackets. Depicted in the picture below on the left are the three gentlemen who took on this project that will help a lot of students who are in need during our winter time.

Our second generous group are former students at Caribou Community School and current members of Caribou High School’s Key Club. The Key Club students created a collection site at Caribou High School for their student body and staff to donate gloves and mittens. Many pairs of gloves and mittens that will keep many hands warm during our colder months were delivered to CCS by members of the Key Club.
