Join us for great kids activities like pumpkin carving and kid gardening activities. We will help the kids while you shop as 10% of all proceeds from Oct 18 will be given to the Good Shepherd Food Bank-No one should go hungry in Maine. Check out to get an idea of all the great organizations that the Good Shepherd Food Bank provides food for. Pumpkins, bulbs, candles, houseplants and more are all here at Skillin’s!

There is plenty to worry about these days. But for many people around us decent food is not an option as folks scramble for clothes and fuel. Let’s help the Good Shepherd Food Bank keep over 600 Maine food banks supplied—do you realize that just a $25 contribution feeds a family of 3 for two weeks? What a truly efficient way to help a family save more for fuel and clothes by helping the Good Shepherd Food Bank provide food?
