KITTERY, Maine — Anyone passing by Fair Tide on Saturday saw a shining silver 1966 Globetrotter Airstream parked in the corner of the lot, and if they stopped to check it out it was likely because they were bringing donations for the "Stuff Stella" event, a fundraiser for the homeless and a local food pantry.

"Stuff Stella is a traveling event put on by Haven Homes and Lifestyles, a division of Keller Williams Realty. Volunteers were collecting non-perishable food items and paper products for Kittery's Footprints Food Pantry. They were also accepting donations for Fair Tide, an organization hoping to end homelessness in the Seacoast area.

Ali Goodwin, a board member at Fair Tide is also a lead agent for Haven Homes and Lifestyles. She and several other volunteers were manning the bus during Saturday's blustery weather.

"We had a tent outside," Goodwin said. "We were doing a Facebook Live about the event when the tent blew away. Seriously, it has been taken to the dump."

Despite the fate of the tent, the collection went well. While they were going to be there until 4 p.m., by about 2 p.m. they had already collected enough donations to provide 81 nights to Fair Tide's One Warm Night program.

Kittery resident Jacqueline Scott came with items she found in her own household pantry, and a check. She said she wanted to pay for one warm night.

"For $31, we can provide a night in a warm shelter for one person," Goodwin said. "We have collected lots of food, paper products and toiletries for Footprints. We are keeping a tally and have 502 pounds of goods right now."

While food stamps help in the community, Goodwin noted they do not cover paper products, personal care items or pet food. She said they hope to collect a lot in those areas for Footprints staff to distribute.

Goodwin said Stella the airbus is a mobile way for them to help in the communities they work in as Realtors. She said the staff of Keller Williams is committed to helping give back to their towns in any ways they can and they take the bus to places like the Kittery Block Party, local tractor shows and other community events.

"When we close on a house, we ask the buyers to choose a charity that we will make a donation to as part of the sale," Goodwin said. "We think it is more meaningful than handing out a bottle of of wine. We all live in these communities and we want to be part of the solutions. Stella is part of our Haven Hearts program and is a way for us to shed light on the housing and food security issues that are a very real part of the Seacoast."
