New Mainers' Fund


New Mainers

Do you care about the environment and also want to be a good neighbor? Here is your opportunity. When you return clothes to the Patches Project you now can select the "New Mainers' Fund" and donate your store credit directly to families in need. 

"Catholic Charities Refugee and Immigration Services is grateful to be the beneficiary of Peace House Studios’ Patches Project donations. As Maine’s first and longest-serving resettlement agency, Catholic Charities Maine (CCM) works to support refugees through the process of becoming responsible, self-reliant members of the Maine communities into which they are welcomed. CCM programming includes housing, employment, community, and cultural transitioning support, as well as health care and education support delivered by a team of case managers and administrative staff. Many of those we serve are fleeing violence and persecution; they arrive with very little and are not equipped for our state’s weather. This partnership with Peace House Studios provides much needed clothing for our youngest New Mainers and is a warm welcome to the great state of Maine!"
