Community Service

"To play some part in promoting international goodwill and understanding among the peoples of the world through person-to-person contact" - The Wally Byam Creed lives on through all of us as We Rally. Read below and please plan on participating in our community service efforts in Fryeburg as you're able.

65th Annual Airstream Club International Rally Philanthropy: Harvest Hills Animal Shelter

Each year, the Airstream Club International President selects a charity to be designated as the official philanthropic cause at International Rally. Our President, Tye Mott, a dog-lover who will be travelling to Rally with his welsh terrier, Doakie, has designated Harvest Hills Animal Shelter as this year's cause. Harvest Hills is located in Fryeburg and operates a thrift store adjacent to the shelter.

All proceeds from goods donated to the Nine Lives Thrift Shop go directly to help feed the animals at the shelter. Whether you are donating unwanted items or making a purchase, you are helping to support the homeless animals. Donation drop off hours are Wednesdays from 8 a.m. - 3 p.m., and the thrift store operating hours can be found here

Please refer to the Harvest Hill's web page for the shelter's wish list and how you can help. Thank you in advance for your generosity to this great local cause!

Annual Local Food and Clothing Drive

Contribute to our annual tradition of providing support to local groups and shelters by donating hats (homemade or store bought), stuffed animals, blankets or throws, women's shelter items, tabs (we cash them in for Ronald McDonald House), food pantry items and pet supplies for cats and dogs. This year's annual drive will provide a great tie-in with the official Rally Philanthropy as described above!
