Helping America's Most Vulnerable

June's Celebration

As you may know, June is leaving for the Volunteers of America national office and we would like to send something with her so she can remember us and her time with VOANNE. Below are two ways for you to contribute to these thoughtful and lasting gifts for June. Do one, or do both, all good!

All photos and letters are due no later than Wednesday, March 21, 2018.

Letters to June

June is all about the personal touches; we’ve seen that in the Anniversary cards we’ve received from her. Each one with a handwritten and thoughtful message, year after year.

In keeping with June’s tradition, you are invited to send a personal message to June that will be included in an album that she can take with her! Your message to June can be personal, touching, and/or funny. The choice is yours!

Note / Letter Guidelines:

There is a size limit: please keep your message to ONE page (8.5"x11")

Handwritten notes are preferred but typed messages are acceptable as well. (Some us have bad handwriting, we get it.)


Please email your scanned letters to or mail your hand written messages to the address below:

Volunteers of America Northern New England
Lauren Danie-Briggs (or Erica Miller)
14 Maine Street, Suite 100
Brunswick, ME 04011

All photos and letters are due no later than Wednesday, March 21, 2018.

Digital Photo Frame

We are also working on creating a digital slideshow for her in addition to the album. We are looking for photos, old and new, of programs and staff hard at work or having fun! These photos will be put in a digital frame that June may have in her new office.

Photo Guidelines:

Start with a good photo: Avoid photos that are badly exposed, composed, focused, cropped or color-balanced.

Composition: Choose photos that emphasize people. Faces command the most audience attention in any visual piece, so close-ups of people are best. Always look for photos that tell the story, people in their natural environment.

Saving files: Please submit all files as a jpg.


If you would like to participate, please email your photos to
