MEDWAY, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Medway Middle School hosted a spaghetti dinner Thursday to raise money for laid off East Millinocket mill workers.
"With winter coming on and the cost of fuel being what it is...it must be hard to decide how to spend the little but of money you have from welfare. I think these supper and things like that really help out," said event volunteer Robert Pelkey.
All donations from the dinner will go to help families in East Millinocket, Millinocket and Lincoln. Organizers hope to raise $7,000 to $10,000 to purchase heating materials like wood, oil and pellets to keep homes warm through the harsh Maine winter. So far they have raised $1,100.
