Remembering those who go often go without



For the fifth year in a row, Maine Roofing led a South Portland Toy Drive, providing coats, boots, and toys to needy children as identified by classroom teachers. Most children on this year's list of 206 had their entire families anonymously adopted by drive volunteers, with the remaining 77 covered by the main drive, with all presents distributed by South Portland police officers. Partering this year with Maine Roofing, South Portland Police and South Portland Schools were Evelyn's Tavern, Port Harbor Marine, Local Acapulco Tanning, Peoples United Bank Mill Creek and South Portland/Cape Elizabeth Buy Local. Shown is just one table of donated toys sorted for delivery at Maine Roofing on Monday, Dec. 12.
