Members of OUT Maine have extended gratitude to volunteers at Coastal Opportunities, who have offered their help for the past few months.

Volunteers from Coastal Opportunities have been making pins and putting together mailings for OUT Maine, as part of the Coastal Opportunities Community Support Services program.

According to Coastal Opportunities in a press release sent to the paper, "in a given year, participants in the Community Support programs donate nearly 4,000 hours of volunteer time to many local organizations. Everyone who pitches in learns valuable vocational skills and also experiences the satisfaction of giving to others while volunteering."

In partnership with allies and families, OUT Maine supports, educates and empowers youth from adolescence to adulthood. For more information, or to support OUT’s critical work on behalf of LGBTQ+ youth, visit their website at
