2023 DEFY Donors

In 2023, our donors help make it possible for us to provide more than $180,000 in scholarships so that families in need were able to participate our child care, after-school and day camp programs as well as more than $130,000 in scholarships to participate in programs at our recreation centers in Blue Hill, Bucksport and Ellsworth.
