Thank you for the Shout Outs!
Updated: Jun 29, 2022
We are proud of the partnership we have with the schools in Waldo County. Over the past year, our food drives have added more than1200 pounds of food to RSU 71 schools' , Searsport Middle and High schools', and the Montview schools' food pantries.
We work with our local schools to be sure students have a safe, fun place to go before and after school. A big thank you to Mary Alice McLean, Glen Widmer, and Ashley Reynolds for their kind words recognizing our partnership. We could not do what we do without their partnership.

Feb 12 Letter from CASS
The YMCA is another strong partner. They work closely with us, especially during unexpected days, like snow days and the day we had to evacuate. They work closely with many CASS families. If you’d like to learn more about ways they YMCA could work with your family, please reach out to Faith Boynton, the Youth Development Director.
