Advent Conspiracy 2022 • Maine Needs

Worship Fully. Spend Less. Give More. Love All.

Each year, HopeGateWay participates in Advent Conspiracy, a movement to keep the holidays focused on what is truly important, to worship fully, spend less, give more and love all. In this spirit, HopeGateWay chooses an organization to support with our Advent giving. This year we have chosen Maine Needs as our organization to highlight.

Maine Needs has been doing phenomenal work in the Greater Portland area and throughout the state of Maine since 2018. What began as a focus to assist asylum seeking mothers raising young children in a new country has grown to an incredible organization serving families and individuals, both housed and unhoused, throughout Maine. They work with street outreach teams, people leaving domestic violence, people leaving incarceration, veterans, asylum seekers, refugees, families, kids and any individual in need of the items they provide. Volunteers are always needed, if this sparks your interest. Maine Needs is located at 332 Forest Avenue.
