The Durgin Center hosted it’s second annual craft fair fundraiser on Dec. 2, bringing in over 20 vendors with an assortment of wares to sell. The event is one of the ways Eastern Area Agency on Aging supports the Durgin Center and its programming.
Over 250 attendees walked through the doors of 274 State Street in Brewer during theday, where they were greeted by vendors like Christine’s Kitchen, M’s Gems, and Aspire Photography. New this year was a $2 entry donation which helped triple the amount of money the craft fair made from 2022.
“The Durgin Center is so important to helping our consumers feed their soul,” Communications and Development Director, Christopher Hill, said. “The Durgin Center helps to address socialization and combat isolation with our congregate dining, and activities, and we want to make sure we’re able to provide these very crucial services to people who come here weekly or even daily.”
The craft fair brought in over $1100 which will directly impact and fund the Durgin Center programming.
