The Waterville Area Essentials Closet first opened its doors on Monday, April 17, 2017. Since then, it has served over 1,300 different people who represent more than 4,000 family members in their homes. Many of these people come back to the Essentials Closet each month – and some only every few months. The Essentials Closet also has new people come every month who are seeking both personal and household items such as tooth brushes, shampoo, and laundry detergent.
The Waterville Area Essentials Closet does not receive funding from the federal, state, or local government. Your donation to the Essentials Closet will go directly towards the organization’s purchase of personal and household items that will be distributed to families in need throughout the Greater Waterville Area. By reaching our goal of $2,000, Colby College will be able to help keep the Essentials Closet stocked for one month. Thank you for donating and making a difference in our greater community!
