Brittany Simpson of Falmouth, Maine: I work at Harmon’s Lunch in West Falmouth. It doesn’t look like much but it’s been a staple in the community since 1960. The building can’t even house more than 24 people inside at a time, but if you drive by during the summer on a Saturday afternoon you’ll see lines out the door and people eating at our picnic tables out back. This burger joint has been a part of my life, my parents life and my grandparents life. I’ve technically known my boss since my first memory of Harmon’s. He’s owned the business for 25+ years. The construction project going on in West Falmouth right now to add light posts and side walks is great and everything, but with the roads being torn up and all the one ways you have to get through to even make your way down Gray Road, it severely hurt business for them. Some of the regulars didn’t even want to make the trip because it could take 15 minutes to get past construction. Now with COVID-19 happening right now and having to close to take out only business is even worse. We weren’t barely able to make payroll for me and other employees. Deciding it was best to close down for a bit my boss decided to close until at least mid April. But who knows how long it could actually be until things have settled from this Virus. I’m asking everybody to please don’t forget Harmon’s. When this is over we’ll be welcoming everyone back to their favorite stop and working hard to stay open. Bring friends. Bring family. Buy gift cards. Just support your local businesses because they are getting hit hard during this time. Some more than others. Thank you.

Britney Merriam of Harrison, Maine: My name is Britney Merriam, and our business is called The Garden of Thomas. For the past few days, we have been posting "therapies" onto our Facebook page to help inspire and cheer our community up. Monday's "therapy" was about helping others. We went to Hannaford in Bridgton to fill up a grocery cart and donated everything we purchased to the Harrison Food Bank. Our town's food bank currently serves over 300 families. When we called that day to ask if they were out of anything specific, they told us that they needed everything. Today's "therapy" was about thanking your community. With all of the flowers we ended up with the other day for our other "therapy," we decided to give them away. We are very thankful for those who still have to work to help make this world go round as much as we can (and that means you too!). We wrapped up all of the flowers into small bouquets and distributed them throughout our town of Harrison, Bridgton, and Naples (placing the bouquets upon doorsteps and having someone come out to receive them). We traveled to the Bridgton Hospital, Naples Fire Department and Police Station, the Harrison Food Bank, Hannaford Supermarkets, the Post Office, the Town Office, and Evergreen Credit Union. There’s so many more of you out there, and we are so very thankful for all that you do. In these hard times, all we hope is that we have made people smile.

Our MuniciPAY employees, who are all working from home, have been authorized to expense $50 per week through the month of April at their favorite local restaurants for take-out or local curb side pick-up of meals. While this amount may be small in comparison, it does allow for $2500 to be spent within the local economy over the next 5 weeks.

Jason Cole of Lebanon, NH: We are photographers and own a Magic Mirror Photo Booth and have been deeply affected by the Covid-19 Coronavirus problem. We decided to do a small good deed each day to help our communities that have made us so successful. We started out with buying $300 worth of food to donate to children in Dover and Somersworth for their End 68 Hours of Hunger Program. We then helped deliver 70 bags of food to drop off for kids who are out of school and didn’t have access to food because their schools were closed. We then brought hundreds of dollars worth of groceries to various families throughout Southern Maine and NH, one in Massachusetts.
We asked and continue to ask people to send us messages of families struggling and if we can, we will help them. Last night we got a request for a family of 7 that had no food. We hoped in the car and went shopping, bringing them several hundred dollars worth of food. Today we have compiled a list of seniors in our community who needed someone to go get their groceries so they didn’t expose themselves in the stores. We have picked up and delivered their groceries to them. We get these names thanks to members of our community sending them to us. We even got a call from someone out of state who has elderly parents in our area and their mom was requesting a certain meal from a certain restaurant that they frequently went to. So we surprised them, picked up the meal and brought it to their door. They had no idea it was coming!
Random, small acts of kindness during this time will help make this less scary. We don’t do it for recognition, we do it to be better neighbors, friends and family. We have a brand new vehicle that can be used for delivery, instead of letting it sit there, we offered it to groups to deliver meals to our most vulnerable kids and elderly. We have had events cancel, so we have free time so why not volunteer it.
Lets all do small acts of kindness to make this less scary. Please “like” our page and see some of the great things these small acts will result in. Send us a PM on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/gofotoyourselfnewengland) with other ideas we can do or groups that may need help. As long as we can, we will be out there daily doing these acts of kindness.
