WRP Food Drive to Benefit the York Community Service Association Food Pantry

 

On Sunday, April 14th from 12:00pm to 3:00pm, Williams Realty Partners will be hosting a food drive to benefit the York Community Service Association Food Pantry at Kennebunk Savings Bank in front of the York Hannaford. 

We sat down with Maureen Monsen, Food Pantry Manager, and asked her how she became involved.  Said Monsen, "It's a family thing. My parents ran a food pantry in Massachusetts and then the York Food Pantry when they moved here. YCSA and the York Food Pantry merged and they continued to manage the Food Pantry. The torch was passed to me and now my children assist with shopping." 

WRP's own Tristan Swanson does a lot with the Food Pantry, too. He says, "In sticking with the company mantra, I just like to 'Give Where I Live'."

The pantry currently serves about 80 families a week. When asked if they are in need of volunteers, Monsen said, "We have a great pool of volunteers, but we can sometimes use some extra muscle at different times during the year." 

While the YCSA Food Pantry welcomes donations, they often have an overflow of certain goods.  Here is a list of items they do and do not need.

Yes, please:

Canned Chicken

Canned Fish (Tuna and Salmon)

Canned Fruit

Canned Meat (SPAM and Ham)

Canned Vegetables (except green beans)

Cooking Oils (Olive and Canola)

Dried Fruits

Dried Herbs & Spices

Gluten Free Foods 

Nuts

Pasta Sauce

Shelf-stable Milk

Soup, Stew, and Chili

Specialty Food Items

Toiletries

No, thank you. We always have a surplus:

Green beans

Instant Mashed Potatoes

Pasta

Peanut Butter

Powdered Milk

Please come and visit us with your "yes, please" donations on Saturday, April 14th between 12:00pm-3:00pm at Kennebunk Savings Bank located at 2 Hannaford Drive in York. If you would like to make a donation but are unavailable on that date, please ship your donations directly to Williams Realty Partners, 4 Marketplace Drive #2, York Maine 03909. (We've provided links to many of the needed items for your convenience.)

          WRP Coat Drive Benefits York County Community Action Corporation

          Williams Realty Partners (WRP) is excited to share that our Second Annual WRP Month of Giving Coat Drive was a huge success thanks to the generosity of the Greater York community.

          Throughout the course of the holiday season, the WRP team (including Stella the Trolley!) collected coats and outerwear, all while spreading holiday cheer with hot chocolate, complimentary photos with Santa and Christmas music. Over the course of the month, over 300 items were collected including over 157 coats, hats, gloves, boots, snow overalls and several cash donations to benefit York County Community Action Corporation.

          “At WRP, we are firm believers in the ‘Give Where You Live’ philosophy. Our Annual WRP Month of Giving is a great way for not only the team at WRP to help out a great cause, but also the community,” states Troy Williams, Owner of WRP. “We are already planning 2019’s Coat Drive because we’ve seen first hand the need and the impact in our community.”

          Please follow us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/WilliamsRealtyPartners/ for the latest community service projects, virtual parties and real estate news.

            Meet Alex: Adoption Counselor & Stay Coordinator at Kittery Animal Hospital

            WRP: What should someone do if they come across a stray? 

            The best thing to do is call the police as they are equipped with tools and strategies to locate the owners—much more common now with microchips.

            WRP: What happens when you take a stray from the police or an animal control officer?

            I assess and  meet their medical needs.  After ten days of using social media to further attempt family reunification, we begin the process of making them available for adoption.  This includes determining their personalities to make sure I find the best homes to fit their temperaments.

            WRP: Do you get pets from other sources, too.

            Alex: Yes, we do.  We have a relationship with shelters in the south and arrange to save dogs that otherwise would be euthanized.  On average, we are able to save 3 - 10 dogs a month.  

            WRP: How do people see the pets you have available for adoption?

            Alex: We have viewing hours that are posted on Facebook and people can call to make an appointment.  They can fill out an application which we review, and if approve, we have the family and adoptee meet to assess the match.

            WRP: What should people know when taking a new pet home?

            Alex: Just like us, each animal has its own personality.  In general, adult cats are the easiest to make the transition.  I always tell people to allow for the animals to make an adjustment.  Don't overwhelm them.  Keep visitors away for a few days and allow the pets to get used to the routines, and even smells, of their new family.
