Catholic Charities of Maine at the Aroostook Centre Mall

The 20,000 sq. ft. retail space is scheduled to be open in October 2023. Dixie Shaw, Director of Hunger & Relief Services at Catholic Charities Maine, said “I’m very excited for Catholic Charities to be a part of all the good things happening at the Aroostook Centre Mall.”

Loading Dock for Services

Feeding the Hungry
