Volunteers working on a gutter project

Making the most of a warm fall day

Volunteers Breck, Sandi, and Phillip took advantage of an unseasonably warm fall day to hang gutters for a neighbor as part of a CHIP repair project.

Since 1984, CHIP has been fulfilling its mission of “neighbors helping neighbors keep their homes safe, warm and dry” by providing necessary home repairs and seasonal heating assistance to central-eastern Lincoln County residents who are not able to do so themselves due to illness, disability, and financial need.

CHIP services are available to residents of Alna, Bremen, Bristol, Damariscotta, Jefferson, Newcastle, Nobleboro, Somerville, South Bristol, Waldoboro, and Whitefield. For help, please leave a voicemail at 677-3450.
