School Supply Drive

By August 31, 2020Blog

Spurwink provides behavioral health and education services for over 8,500 children, adults, and families in Maine each year. The pandemic has created a disparity for our clients who were already struggling before the economic impact of Covid-19 hit. We have seen a rise in need for school supplies and backpacks. You can help by purchasing new items locally from our list below and drop them off at Spurwink at 901 Washington Avenue, Suite 100 in Portland until September 20, 2020. We encourage you to shop locally and support small independent business if possible, but we also have an amazon wish if you wish to shop virtually. For questions please contact Amanda Strayer at or (207) 383-5133.
