Pink Feather Foundation Marks Anniversary with New Location, Board of Directors


Pink Feather Foundation is in its third school year serving teachers and their students as a foundation, and it is the co-founders’ 10th year overall getting clothes into the hands of those who need them. The foundation has increased capacity to serve more students with its new location, and a new board of directors and committees are ensuring the organization stays viable for the expansion of its services into more districts in the coming years. With over 400 packages delivered in the last two years, the Oxford Hills community has benefited from the work of this organization and its dedicated volunteers, and recently awarded them the Ron Kugell Community Partner Award.


NORWAY, ME, September 6, 2021—Pink Feather Foundation is excited to announce their new location and newly established board of directors. The nonprofit group recently moved to 10 Aldrich Avenue, Norway, Maine, the former location of Grover Gundrilling.


“The space allows for us to be fully operational for each department and gather the information needed for future expansion plans to other districts in Maine. Keeping things streamlined and orderly is what makes this program thrive,” said Joni Gordon, co-founder of Pink Feather Foundation.

The 2021 Pink Feather Foundation Board of Directors are:

Joni Gordon of MSAD 17

Jen Kyllonen of Big Rig Shop

Chris Delamater of Northeast Bank

Marc Hallee of Korn Ferry

Mark Bancroft of Bancroft Contracting

Sarah Glynn of Oxford Hills Law

Paula Thayer of Big Rig Shop

Christina Noonan of Christina Noonan Design


“Our board of directors is made up of a dedicated team of community members committed to the longevity of the work of the foundation. They are raising funds to increase physical capacity which allows for businesses to come in and volunteer, and raising funds for the addition of our first employee. This person will be the face of weekly operations and volunteer coordination,” said Jen Kyllonen, co-founder of Pink Feather Foundation.
