“Great Giveaway” in Hampden 

Not much is free these days, but some people got some great goods without paying a penny in Hampden Saturday. The Community Church of the Open Door on route 1A held it’s third annual Great Giveaway.The church’s parking lot was full Saturday morning, and items, donated by church community members, were pretty picked over within just a few hours.The event is hosted by the church’s mission team who think it’s a good way to give back to the community.”We just decided you know what so many people are used to hearing from the church for people to give money and we just said were going to do it without asking for anything in return,” said Esther Littlefield, event organizer. The group expects to hold the same event next year. They suggest getting there early so you can get the best selection of goods.
