COVID-19 Information

Thank you for giving to CIFK during a most challenging year for many.  Penquis has worked with all partnering agencies to ensure that CIFK can continue by implementing new safety measures, following all the recommended guidelines.

New this year:

Many organizations that received their gifts at their agency in the past are not this year. Penquis is the primary drop off location for many of the participating organizations.  Please check the drop off location in your confirmation email.

What to expect when dropping off at Penquis:

Drop off is M-F 8:00 am – 4:30 pm at 262 Harlow St., Bangor, ME 04401

Ring a bell and a masked receptionist will greet you in the lobby area. You can leave your item in the entryway and she will take it and secure it at that time. If you’d like to call ahead and would like us to get your package from your trunk, we are happy to do that, please feel free to call to set that up at 973-3558.

If you are giving a cash donation online, we will happily shop for you. If you are ordering a gift and having it shipped to Penquis please include the child’s ID code in the order notes if possible or let us know so we can match the gift to the correct child. Contact

What if you can’t find the gift item?

Please know purchasing a gift card instead of the gift item is totally fine. This year we understand the many challenges to getting out, shopping, and finding items. We have spoken with the families and they are understanding and happy for any help they receive during the holiday season.

We thank you for your support of children throughout our community during the holiday season.
