In step with community

During November and December, the dancers have been busy making holiday cards for residents of local nursing homes, as well as Christmas cards for U.S. troops in Afghanistan. The cards will be delivered to the troops via the “Wreaths Across America” tour, which stopped at Westbrook Middle School on Monday.

Dancers also collected more than 50 pounds of food for the Westbrook Food Pantry.

The DDC Dance Company will perform at the Portland Center for Assisted Living on Tuesday, Dec. 18, and deliver cards made by Drouin Dance Center dancers to the residents.

Next up for Dancer Donations is a clothing drive for the thrift shop located at the Westbrook Community Center, and a Valentine’s Dance-at-hon to benefit local charities. Those who know of an organization that could benefit from Dancer Donations should call Drouin Dance Center at 854-2221.
