Neighbors Helping Neighbors
Our mission is to extend a helping hand to our neighbors. Community Outreach Services (COS) was organized in November 1990 as a food pantry. COS began with the vision of people from local churches in the Kennebunks reaching out to neighbors in need of food.
Over the years in an effort to meet the many growing needs of the community, COS expanded their assistance programs to include the following services:
- Diversified Food Programs – in addition to the food pantry, which is open four days a week, COS provides the following: limited food delivery, and holiday food baskets
- Fuel Aid Assistance Program – providing heating fuel on an emergency basis
- Specific Needs Program – providing financial aid to those with special requests such as eyeglasses, health care needs, rent/mortgage, gasoline, electric bills, etc.
Your generous donations help fund these and other programs COS continues to roll out that fit into the mission and objectives of our organization - serving our local communities.
