Who we are
South Berwick Cares is a non-profit organization that has been created because of the financial struggles of some of our town’s families. We are the newest member of Sobo Central!
We are a non-profit organization that raises funds to help families in need with necessities throughout the school year. We help during the holidays and raise funds to provide after school and summer opportunities to children whose families cannot afford them.
In the past Central School’s community has responded to these needs and generously provided gifts during the holiday season. Because there are so many families in need this year we are reaching out to the broader community of South Berwick.
Here’s how you can help:
If you’d like to sponsor a family, sponsor an individual, or purchase a specific item, go to our Sign-Up Genius here.
If you’d like to make a monetary donation click here and write South Berwick Cares in the Add special instructions to the seller. Please make donations as soon as possible so that the funds can be used for holiday giving. If there is an excess of donated funds, the money will be used to provide after school and summer activities for children.
Purchase gift cards from local stores and restaurants and drop them off at Central School by December 18th. Parents requested little to no items for themselves, so we could treat them to something special too.
If you’d like to claim your donation as a tax deduction, there will be forms available at Central School’s office.
DROP OFF: Please drop off donations to Central School by Tuesday, December 19th. Gifts can be dropped off at Central anytime between 7:30 a.m.- 3:45 p.m. If you need to make other arrangements for drop off, please call Central School’s office at 384-2333.
Please place your unwrapped gift into a bag clearly labeled with the family alias name as well as the family member. For example: Family Green, 6 year old girl. Please provide wrapping materials for any gifts you sign up to purchase. Include: wrapping paper/gift bags, ribbons/bows and labels.
Thank you for your generosity! Have a joyful holiday season!
