Dream Factory Makes Gingerbread Houses

IMG_6926 (3)

IMG_6927 (1)This past week the Waynflete Dream Factory activity sent 17 members to help make gingerbread houses as raffle items for the annual Haven’s candy fundraiser. This fundraiser is put together by all of the Southern Maine Dream Factory chapters each year and is a huge and tremendously fun way to not only raise money but also spread awareness about what the Dream Factory actually is.

In short, it is a non-profit organization that grants dreams to kids aged three to seventeen who are diagnosed with a chronic illness. In the simplest terms, chronic illnesses are lifelong conditions that can often be helped with medication but cannot be cured. Last year, the Waynflete DF club helped to send a Maine 12 year old diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes to Disney with his family. In just one year, the club raised over $500 and gave 11 cumulative days of community service.
