Charity Day Raises $4500 in Downtown
Portland's Downtown District’s Annual Charity Day raised over $4,500 from downtown shops and businesses in the Old Port and Arts District for Day One, a non-profit organization dealing with adolescent substance abuse, addiction and youth at risk. Day One's spectrum of care includes prevention, intervention, treatment and aftercare services for youth and families statewide.
Charity Day is part of Portland's Downtown District month-long celebration, Light Up Your Holidays, for 6 years. Some previous recipients include the Caleb Adult Center, Preble Street Resource Center and the Frannie Peabody Center.
