POLAND SPRING — Poland Spring employees from the Poland, Hollis and Kingfield bottling facilities helped support local families in need in several ways recently.

In Poland, associates donated 40 turkeys to the Lifesprings program and the Gray Food Pantry. They also fulfilled the holiday wishes of five local families through the Giving Tree program at Poland Community School. Additionally, Poland Spring held a food drive to benefit the RSU 16 Mannafed Backpack Program, along with a water donation and clothing drive to benefit the Poland Food Bank.

Associates at the Hollis facility donated 120 turkeys and two truckloads of food to support Thanksgiving meal service at the Hollis Food Pantry, and continued the season of giving with the purchase of gifts to help two families in need through the town of Hollis.

At Poland Spring’s facility in Kingfield, employees participated in the annual Giving Tree program, which provides winter clothing and toys to children in need from Kingfield Elementary School. Associates also continued to provide meals to senior citizens through the Bridging the Gap program, which has been done each month this year.

Other noteworthy charitable efforts in which Poland Spring was actively engaged include donating $5,000 to Fryeburg’s Community Giving Tree program. These funds helped provide winter clothing to families in the MSAD 72 communities of Fryeburg, Denmark, Lovell, Stow, Sweden, Brownfield and Stoneham.

Poland Spring associates Matthew Turner, transportation resource; manpower scheduler/recruiter Stephen Frey; and production operator Kasey Robertson display items that were donated to local charitable organizations.
