Through the roof support



The sixth annual South Portland Toy Drive, founded by city resident Liz Darling, capped off its 2018 benefit with a sorting party at the Maine Roofing warehouse on Bishop Avenue Monday, Dec. 11. There, helpers included, from left, Taylor Stroup, Susan Shapiro, South Portland Police Officer Caleb Gray, Kathy Hurley, Officer Phil Longanecker, Dave Twombly, Liz Darling, Billy Darling, Ashley Simard, Deborah Welch, Cindy Billingslea Urbano, Lynn Kopack, April Cohen, Susan Larrivee, Officer Linda Barker, and Officer Rocco Navarro. Volunteers sorted all of the donated and purchased presents by requests. The police officers then delivered packages to local schools, which Darling works with to create the list of children who might otherwise go without during the holiday season. From there, the presents were given to receiving parents to wrap and place under their trees.
