Guilford’s Womancare to hold annual phonathon

GUILFORD — Womancare hopes to raise $1,400 in its annual phonathon to be held Monday, Feb. 5 through Wednesday, Feb. 7.

“If everyone gives at least 5 dollars, we will easily meet our goal,” said Juliana Plummer, agency director.

Womancare Aegis is the domestic violence program serving Piscataquis County and its bordering towns in Somerset County and southwestern Penobscot County. Last year, Womancare was able to assist 348 people from the three areas.

Womancare offers a 24-hour crisis hot line, temporary emergency shelter, short-term crisis counseling, support groups, assistance with court matters, including protection orders and pro se divorces, community education, children’s programming and referrals to appropriate services. All services are confidential.

For more information about the phonathon, contact Womancare at 564-8165. Those who do not receive a call during the phonathon and want to support the group can send donations to P.O. Box 192, Dover-Foxcroft 04426.
