Team Bath had the wonderful opportunity to participate in an Easter basket making event sponsored by the local charitable organization, Dogwill. Dogwill is known for its generous support in providing free supplies for pets to many individuals in the community. Their impact extends beyond just pet supplies, as they also contribute in various other ways to help those in need. It was an exciting experience for Team Bath to be a part of this event, marking our first involvement in an HCBS event in our new area. We are grateful for the chance to give back and support such a meaningful cause alongside Dogwill.

Team Mexico had a delightful experience at JB Farm Store's maple shack, where they indulged in the delicious combination of maple syrup and ice cream. Not only did they satisfy their sweet cravings, but they also gained valuable insights into the process of sustainable harvesting and storage. It was a perfect blend of enjoyment and education, making their visit both enjoyable and informative.

Star Of The Month

bf90f246-a3b9-4b89-b5e4-51d5820ec50d image

 This month we would like to recognize Donna Harriman as OEI’s April “Star on the month.” Donna is a shared living provider in our Searsport Region and has been part of the OEI Family for many years. Donna goes above and beyond in her role as a shared living provider. She provides a caring and supportive environment to the individuals in her home. She is a fierce advocate who works tirelessly to ensure the individuals she supports are able to live their best lives. Donna is a busy woman, constantly driving folks to and from appointments, social opportunities and other commitments and never complains about having to do so. Donna truly believes that every individual deserves to live the life they desire and she “walks the walk” when it comes to the service and support, she provides. Thank you, Donna, for all that you do! We look forward to working alongside you for many more years to come!

March Recap:

In March, we cooked up something special with our Dinner In A Basket kindness campaign. With the help of generous donations, we were able to serve up complete meals to families and individuals in need within our communities. It's amazing what a little food and kindness can do to fill both the stomach and the heart!
