Maine Lobster Festival donates to Oceanside HS East Backpack Program

Posted Feb. 07, 2013, at 10:35 a.m.

Brian Plourde, vice president of the Maine Lobster Festival, presented Becky Harjula and Principal Tom Forti of Oceanside High School East with a $500 donation to the Oceanside High School Backpack Program. This program helps defray the cost of providing food, supplies, and family necessities to RSU 13 high school students in need of supplies over any particular weekend during the school year.

The program has been very successful in meeting the students’ and their families’ needs, insuring that they receive the necessary nutritional meals and supplies over a given weekend to tide them over before they return to school the following Monday. The Maine Lobster Festival Committee was pleased to give their assistance to this initiative.
