Rolling Thunder®, Inc
Chapter 1 Maine
We are located in Sanford Maine. Our monthly meetings are held on the second Sunday of the month (unless specified separately) at 10:00 am. We meet at the Veterans of Foreign Wars post on the corner of School Street and Hutchinson Street.
We work to help local veterans in many ways.
We are supporters of the Veterans Career Home located in Biddeford and the Huot House in Saco. Both of these locations are transitional homes for homeless veterans.
With funds raised through out the year, we purchase toys and clothing for veteran's children at Christmas.
We hold buffets during the year. These provide an opportunity for community members to meet with local organizations and talk about upcoming events. It also provides an inexpensive meal for those who can't typically afford a night out.
We sponsor wreaths for the Wreaths Across America ceremony held each December at the Southern Maine Veterans Cemetery in Springvale.
Throughout the year, other organizations such at the Veterans Project, Preble Street Homeless Shelter and Veterans Inc., refer veterans to us who may need help with heating fuel, food, furniture or clothing. We work hard to make sure that each veteran referred to us has what they need, when they need it.
If this sounds like a cause that you would like to help with, contact one of our officers or stop by a meeting.
