Kirk Cyr, Olympia Sports Store Manager, Presque Isle, Maine, recently awarded 10 very lucky Aroostook County youth with special gift bags. Each received a new pair of name brand sneakers, a t-shirt, pair of shorts/pants (his or her choice) and a few pairs of socks just in time for summer.
The Olympia Sports Foundation, a nonprofit founded in 2000 out of concern for disadvantaged youth in local communities, made this donation possible. Through the foundation’s Clothing Bank, new clothing is given to help nurture self-esteem of individuals and families and promote goodwill within communities while enriching those in need.
Cyr identified Care & Comfort as the organization to provide Olympia Sports Foundation assistance in identifying those who would benefit from The Clothing Bank. Packages were distributed to some very happy kids throughout Aroostook County.
