FARMINGTON — Buttons for Babes Giving Circle made their quarterly distribution on Thursday, July 6, to the Western Maine Homeless Outreach.

Since going out on their own in September of 2016, Buttons for Babes Giving Circle has chosen to modify its method of funding. Each quarter, the board chooses another local organization that supports children to receive a percentage of the funds raised, allowing those organizations to assist more children in need.

The idea is to supply organizations with additional funds for services their programs may not normally support, or simply increase the funds available for existing services that meet Buttons for Babes Giving Circle vision. In 2017, funds have been disbursed to the Franklin County Children’s Task Force and now the Western Maine Homeless Outreach.
