Raffle Supports Knox County Homeless Coalition
Late in 2022, the Satellite raised funds through the raffle of an original painting and gave $2,000 to the Knox County Homeless Coalition. Becca Gildred from KCHC stated at a recent meeting, “People in Maine experiencing homelessness tripled from 2021 to 2022, according to statistics from the Maine State Housing Authority, and almost half of those households who experienced homelessness have at least one child.”
Earlier in 2022, the Satellite held Corntoberfest, a cornhole tournament at American Flatbread in Rockport. Funds raised were given to the AIO and Camden Area food pantries addressing both food insecurity and heating.
