Imagine waking up on Christmas morning and not having a clean tooth brush to brush your teeth with.

Here's a small way that you can help out a family in need this holiday season.  Donate things like deodorant, toothpaste, tooth brushes, razors, shaving cream, body wash, shampoo, tampons, or any other unopened toiletries, to those that are far less fortunate than you this winter.

Everything donated will benefit those families that will use the Emmaus Homeless Shelter in Downtown Ellsworth.  Donations will be accepted until January 5th.

Here's where you can drop off your donation:

Cadillac Mountain Sports at both Cottage Street in Bar Harbor and on High Street in Ellsworth, the Bar Harbor Chamber of Commerce on Cottage Street, Bar Harbor Savings and Loan on Main Street in Bar Harbor, House Wine on Main Street in Bar Harbor, Jesup Memorial Library on Mount Desert Street in Bar Harbor, The MDI Marathon Office at 1369 State Highway 102 in Town Hill.
