Pink Feather Foundation is a not-for-profit organization that relies heavily on its dedicated volunteers to meet its mission. Our mission is to improve the lives of students by partnering with teachers to confidentially provide clothing and accessories at no cost. We know that when kids have their basic needs met, they are more ready to learn. We currently serve MSAD 17 and RSU 16 and expect to expand our outreach as we increase capacity. This is where you come in!
