Gorham Schools Backpack Program - NEEDS YOUR HELP!

We have exciting news and need YOUR help!

Our grant application, that would benefit Gorham's BackPack Program and the GMS Garden, has been selected as a Top 200 State Farm Neighborhood Assist® cause!

We are the ONLY cause from Maine that was selected!

From August 14th through August 23rd, the community will vote and the 40 causes with the most votes will EACH win a $25,000 grant from State Farm. Use THIS link when voting:


You can vote up to 10 times EVERY DAY from August 14th-23rd.

Please share WIDELY, remind your family and friends to vote, and ask your employer if you can work together as a business to help promote our cause.

The BackPack Program provides students who are suffering from the effects of hunger with nutritious, easy-to-prepare food to eat during the weekends and school vacations.

The GMS Garden grows and donates 800-1000 lbs. of produce to the Gorham Food Pantry EVERY YEAR!

Grant money will help sustain the BackPack Program and allow us to add fresh fruit to our weekly packings. We will also purchase a greenhouse for the garden at GMS to expand our growing season, thus increasing our donation to the pantry.
