Portside Gives Back: Holiday Gift Drive


Portside Real Estate Group's Pop Up Holiday Drive returns on Monday, November 15th, running through Wednesday December 15th. New this year a fourth location!

Stop by one of our four locations and donate goods (Listed Below) to support our two beneficiaries: The Shalom House and Maine Children's Home.

Shalom House:  Shalom House helps provide an array of community-based mental health services to hundreds of individuals living with serious mental illness in Southern Maine.  This holiday season, they are seeking personal care items and warm clothing for their students.  These donations will support the Shalom House mission to help individuals address their personal goals, receive services, and once again become a vital part of their communities. 

Maine Children’s Home:  The Maine Children’s Home Christmas Program aims to share joy and winter warmth with kids and families throughout Maine during, what can be, a stressful time for many.  Through this program, 1,500 children and their families are provided with tools for play, connection and comfort this holiday season. 

Drop-off Locations:

  • Portside Office locations will accept donations Monday - Friday from 9 -4 PM (With the exception of Nov. 25th+26th).

  • Donations can also be made at 1 Badger Island, Kittery, on Nov. 20th and Dec. 4th from 10AM-12PM (Warm beverages, holiday treats, and cheer provided).
