First off, we would like to thank everyone that helped make the bowling fundraiser in July such a great success, in particular Donna and Eddie Klein. We were able to raise enough funds to pay for the boy’s dormitory which is expected to be completed by the end of September.
We are happy to share with you the news that Dolfine Gumba Dawa Oliech, founder of the Korando Center, and her daughter Pamela will be visiting us here in Maine in a few short weeks.
Please join us for a chance to speak with Dolfine and hear her story at one of these small gatherings planned in October.
- Wednesday, October 21, 6:30pm, REM Center, 93 Main Street, Waterville
- Wednesday, October 28, 7pm, Colby College, Diamond Hall (room location will be confirmed at a later date)
At each of these gatherings we will be collecting clothing items for Dolfine and Pamela to bring back for the children of the Korondo Center. They are in need of:
- Girls clothing sizes children’s 4 up through women’s medium including: modest dresses, skirts, polo shirts and sweaters
- Boys clothing sizes children’s 4 up through men’s medium including: shorts, pants, sweaters and button down shirts
We also are looking for a few suitcases to be donated in which to transport the clothing. Once back in Kenya, the suitcases are used as personal under bed storage bins. If you have one you would like to donate, or for any other questions, please contact Alice at 207-634-2513.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
