7 years ago

CARIBOU, Maine — Catholic Charities Maine’s Food Bank was recently chosen by the Maine State Court of the Catholic Order of Foresters to receive $1,000 in funding from the home office’s Welfare & Relief Fund.

Located in Naperville, Ill., the Catholic Order of Foresters releases monies to each State Court throughout the country to be donated to a charity of their choice.

Dixie Shaw, director of hunger and relief services at Catholic Charities, said, “We could not possibly do the work we do without local support and the Catholic Order of Foresters has provided this wonderful gift two years in a row. We are so grateful for their support in helping us feed the county from St. Francis to Wytopitlock.”

In 2017, the Catholic Charities Food Bank helped feed more than 23,000 people throughout The County.
