The Rangeley Congregational Church Women’s Fellowship met with women of the Rangeley Congregational Church Dec. 18 to distribute $10,000 to charity.

The money was raised by participating in a summer festival, a pop-up craft fair and the annual Holly Fair in Rangeley, where handmade crafts, jams, and baked goods were sold. All the proceeds of these fairs are donated to charity, according to a news release from Nancy Zambraski with the fellowship.

The group distributed donations to 26 organizations, with a large percentage of these donations benefitting people in the Rangeley community and region.

A partial list of organizations which will receive funds includes Rangeley Health Ride, Rangeley Meal Site, WRGY, The Giving Tree, Rangeley Library, Grandmother’s Purse, Rangeley Health & Wellness HELP/HARC & Rangeley Ski Scholarship Fund, Rangeley Fire Department Children’s Christmas Party, Arbor House, Safe Voices of Farmington, The Center for Grieving Children, Western Maine Cancer Resource Center, Androscoggin Home + Healthcare, Farmington Animal Rescue, and other national and international charities.

The fellowship’s participation in summer festivals and Holly Fair have generated proceeds which have benefited many organizations for 28 years. This year marks its 28th annual Holly Fair, which is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 18 at the Rangeley Congregational Church Barn at 2 High St.

Purchases at the 2023 Rangeley Summer Festivals, and Holly Fair will help the group continue to help others.
