The American Legion Auxiliary Unit 43 in Belfast is pleased to announce a donation to the Neighborhood House in Belfast. A Missionary of Veracity Chapel in Morrill, they are located at 174 Congress Street. The Neighborhood House reaches children in our local community. During this past school year, Neighborhood House offered clubs for elementary and middle school age children. These clubs include a meal, song and Bible time, activities, games and fun. At their peak this past year, the attendance reached 49.  For many of these children, the Neighborhood House is a sanctuary for them to just be kids and escape some of the darkness in their lives. Summer offers a time for kids to get involved with T-Ball, partnering with a church for Summer Elementary VBS, sending kids to summer camps, and simply being a place for them to feel like they belong.

Directors Chris & Marcia O’Jala along with committee members, volunteer their time and resources to our community children through their generous commitment.

The American Legion Auxiliary recognizes the great work these selfless individuals offer, to provide an outreach for the children.  The financial needs are constant and it’s important local organizations assist.  We were pleased to offer a $750 donation to The Neighborhood House, proceeds from a fundraiser we held, thanks to generous donations from L.L. Bean.

For more information about or to donate resources, time or financial support for The Neighborhood House, please contact Chris or Marcia O’Jala at 207-338-3013.  Together we can make a difference in a child’s life.

Matthew 18:5:  He who welcomes a child like this in My name, welcomes Me.
