"We live in one of the most caring places on Earth." That is the message that Boothbay Treasures wants to spread. The Boothbay Region is home to many organizations that work to make this community a wonderful place to live, work, play, and pray.
Boothbay Treasures is a coalition of 40+ nonprofit organizations that work together to encourage our neighbors and friends to give back to local charities in ways that are meaningful to them. The group was also designed to let our volunteers, board members, donors, and staff members know how very much they are treasured.
