Lend Your Support to Healthy Island Project
Healthy Island Project was founded to enhance the health and wellbeing of the Deer Isle – Stonington community. Whether it’s supporting older island residents, providing sustainable food offerings to students, teaching residents healthy behaviors, or gathering to celebrate our community, HIP offers something for everyone. Your support enables us to do what we do.
We are grateful for all of our supporters — native islanders, transplants, seasonal residents, and summer people — for the part that each plays. Creating a healthy community involves all of us. We couldn’t do it without you!
Ways to Give
We are currently seeking the following donations:
Hand Wash Sink (Value: $250 - $325)
Dedicated hand wash sinks are critical to preventing the flow of pathogens. State of Maine code requires that hands must be washed in a sink designated for hand washing. We are in need of sinks for three of our cooking locations: 1) Community of Christ Church, 2) Deer Isle – Stonington High School, and 3) HIP office.
Washing Machine (Value: $850 - $1,000)
A dedicated washing machine at Deer Isle – Stonington High School will provide a sanitary way to wash kitchen towels and uniforms.
Utility Trailer (Value: $1,000)
A utility trailer will allow the Healthy Island Project team to be more mobile and make deliveries, especially as part of the Magic Food Bus program.
Lend a hand and volunteer for HIP
Healthy Island Project is always seeking volunteers to support our health programming. We currently need assistance delivering meals to seniors, working the HIP booth at the farmer’s market, and tending to our community garden. For more information on ways you can help, call (207) 367-6332.
