Rockland — On Oct. 27, two dozen volunteers gathered to help the Broadreach Family & Community Services do an autumn spruce-up.

At Youthlinks on Broadway in Rockland, volunteers painted, trimmed hedges, cut down trees, harvested sun chokes, and cut back the perennial garden. At Mid-Coast Children’s Services on Park Street in Rockland volunteers battened down the building for winter, and completed some needed repairs. At the main office of Broadreach Family & Community Services, volunteers washed windows and gave the front entry way a spiffy new coat of paint. McDonald’s of Maine dropped by and donated snacks and new T-shirts for volunteers.

Broadreach has been making a positive difference in the lives of children, teens, adults and families of Waldo and Knox County for more than 30 years. With such programs as Broadreach Behavioral Health Services, Mid-Coast Children’s Services, Collaborative PreK classrooms in RSUs 3 and 20, Literacy Volunteers of Waldo County, and Youthlinks Broadreach serves more than 3,000 individuals each year. Broadreach appreciates the on-going support of local volunteers and the generous donations of area businesses and community members.
