Lisbon – The spirit of giving during the holiday season is alive and well in Lisbon.  Students, staff and families of Lisbon Community School, Philip W. Sugg Middle School, and Lisbon High School once again support the United States Marine Corp. with the Maine Toys for Tots Campaign.   “The student junior volunteers throughout the district met to decide on the projects they wanted to assist with during the school year.  Collecting toys was again at the top of the list for activities this year,” shares Monica Millhime, Community Resource/Volunteer Coordinator for Lisbon Schools.  “We are thrilled Mrs. Dolan, who serves as the advisor for LCS Civil Rights Team and the Student Government group at Lisbon High School, are working in conjunction with the collection this year.”   “Students started recruiting for donations of toys in the community and the word has spread quickly,” shares Assistant Principal Munsey.  Toys will be collected through Monday, December 8.  Drop-off locations for donations are Lisbon Community School, 33 Mill Street, Lisbon; Philip W. Sugg Middle School, 4 Sugg Drive, Lisbon Falls; Lisbon High School, 2 Sugg Drive, Lisbon Falls; and the Superintendent’s Central Office, 19 Gartley Street, Lisbon.  FMI on programs, projects, volunteer and partnership opportunities email mmillhime@lisbonschoolsme.org or call 754.0021  Check out all the latest news from schools on FaceBook at Community Resource News in Lisbon Schools.

Lisbon - Students enrolled in the  Lisbon High School alternative education program at Gartley Street in Lisbon, visited the Community School on November 18.  Students met Lisa Brown, LCS teacher and co-chair of the program with Jennifer Robitaille, to donate locally purchased food items for the annual “Holiday Family” program supported by the staff of the school.  Staff are asked to share their nomination for the families they feel can use a little extra assistance during the holidays with gifts for their children, a hearty meal and other items.  The outpouring of contributions will benefit 18 families with 43 children.  Gartley Street students used funds for their donated items from revenues generated through their entrepreneurial successes from their Gartley Street Program E-Bay store managed and supported by students.

Timely Reminder, Charity Scams & Good Guys


A timely reminder before the Holidays and our generous spirits open up our wallets…   How many ways can you spell G R E E D?   
 
  THINK BEFORE YOU DONATE!
 
SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT BEFORE YOU MAKE CONTRIBUTIONS:   As you open your pockets to do a good thing and make yourself feel good, please keep the following facts in mind:
The American Red Cross
President and CEO Marsha J. Evans'
salary for the year was $651,957 plus expenses
MARCH OF DIMES
It is called the March of Dimes because
only a dime for every 1 dollar is given to the needy.
The United Way

receives a $375,000 base salary along with numerous expense benefits.
UNICEF

Less than 5 cents of your donated dollar goes to the cause.
GOODWILL 
CEO and owner Mark Curran profits $2.3 million a year.
Goodwill is a very catchy name for his business.
You donate to his business and then he sells the items for PROFIT. 
He pays nothing for his products and pays his workers minimum wage! Nice Guy. 
$0.00 goes to help anyone!
