Community Service Spotlight: Helping at-risk teens at My Place Teen Center

My Place Teen CenterEvery child matters but not every child has the basics they need to thrive—supportive adults, nourishing food, and a place to feel safe. My Place Teen Center of Westbrook, Maine, is an organization dedicated to giving these basics and more to at-risk teens, providing them with a safe place to hang out after school and sustaining them with comfort, meals, resources, and hope.

Artel is proud to support the efforts of My Place Teen Center. Through volunteers who help prepare food, often with the kids’ assistance, the Artel team extends their commitment to service to kids in the local community.

“Our organization would not exist, or function, without our fleet of hard-working volunteers. The Artel crew have been consistent kitchen helpers, and when you’re feeding 40+ kids per night, their smiles, cooking skills, and dedication to our kids, are so necessary and heart-warming. We are grateful to have neighbors like Artel who make such an impact on our community. Thanks for donating your time and talents to enrich the lives of hundreds of at-risk youth!”

-Donna Dwyer, President & CEO of My Place Teen Center
