FARMINGTON — The Abused Women’s Advocacy Project will collaborate with Franklin County law enforcement to hold a community cookout from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 26, in Abbott Park, at the University of Maine at Farmington campus, Intervale Road.

Lunch plates will be available for local businesses and residents for $7. Each plate will include a hamburger, hot dog, chips, brownie and a beverage. Businesses in the downtown Farmington area can order in advance and lunch will be delivered by an officer from one of the local law enforcement agencies. Proceeds will be used to support victims and survivors of domestic abuse in the community.

The Abused Women’s Advocacy Project is a domestic violence agency that serves individuals in Franklin, Oxford and Androscoggin counties. The agency provides support and advocacy to individuals and families experiencing domestic violence. They also provide educational presentations to area businesses, mental health providers, medical providers and other organizations to help build awareness and facilitate a coordinated community response to domestic violence.

There will be activities for children, along with a free drawing for a prize. All are invited to bring a picnic blanket and stop by the park for lunch.
