Welcome To Dirigo Kids
The mission of Dirigo Kids is to support Maine’s under-privileged youth through fundraising activities. We will continue to be a brethren organization to our friends, The Marine Corps Reserves, who founded Toys for Tots, as well as serve as many of Maine’s nonprofit groups that support our local communities.
What We Do
The mission of Dirigo Kids is to support Maine’s under-privileged youth through fundraising activities.
As a child of adoption, I was extremely luck to have grown up with two loving parents in a blue-collar town in Maine. As a child I did not have to go “without” anything. I was always taken care and put first by my parents. I have several friends my age who were also adopted—some were as fortunate as me, others were not. I didn’t realize there were other adopted children out there who weren’t as fortunate. Some had yearning to know their parents, their medical background, and if they had any siblings. Then, there were those whose parents who were not as attentive and loving as mine. There was just always something missing for them. I just wasn’t aware that this world is a case-by-case scenario and you never know what cards you would be dealt.
