HERMON, Maine — Jacob Tozer’s family got a good deal this summer on a van to help them transport the 13-year-old, who uses a wheelchair because he has leukodystrophy, which affects the way his brain communicates with his muscles.
It costs thousands of dollars to adapt a vehicle for use by someone with disabilities. That’s where Jacob’s Ride comes in.
Jacob’s Ride is a community effort that will sponsor a spaghetti supper plus a silent auction and live auction from 4 to 6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 29, at Hermon High School.
Tickets are $5, or $20 for a family. Donated items are being accepted for the auctions.
Items to be auctioned include an HP TouchPad tablet computer, eight tickets to see the Portland Sea Dogs, a three-month gym membership, homemade quilts, a painting by a local artist, gift certificates from area businesses, Pampered Chef items, Bangor Daily News subscriptions and a framed Tom Hennessey print of a moose, “Swamp Sentinel.”
Donations may be made to Jacob’s Ride, Camden National Bank, Route 2, Hermon 04401, or sent to Jacob’s Ride, 53 Pineview Ave., Glenburn 04401. Donors also my contribute at facebook.com/JacobTozersRide. All contributions will go to the project to benefit Jacob, who attends Hermon Middle School.
