Kindness in Action at Rowe School – Maine Needs Drive

March 8, 2021 - March 12, 2021

Rowe students are invited to participate in the PTO’s Kindness in Action week by helping their fellow Mainers. We are partnering with Maine Needs, a nonprofit that helps those struggling to meet basic living needs. Students can participate in one of five suggested ways (or see below.) Collection week is March 8-12. During this week, students bring their items to school and can either put them in the bins in the lobby or give them to their teachers. The PTO will deliver the items to Maine Needs.


YES students will have a chance to participate in their own acts of kindness in the near future, so stay tuned! If non-Rowe students want to participate in this drive, check out the link and then send an email to for easy drop-off instructions. We will respond within 24 hours.
