Why Rizzo Mattson Gives Thanks for These Wonderful Local Nonprofits

Ever since we first opened our doors as a real estate firm in 1983 (then known as Ross, Rizzo & Hanna Real Estate), Rizzo Mattson REALTORS® has been driven by two passionate goals: to serve our customers caringly and honestly, and to serve our local community in the same spirit. Now, with 21 agents on our team, we are proud that each of our agents cares very deeply about the communities we live in, and about the greater Augusta, Maine area as a whole. As the Thanksgiving holiday approaches and we all ponder our many blessings, we wanted to take a moment to spotlight 12 local nonprofits whose vision, passion, and hard work uplift and bless our community all throughout the year. They include:

  •  Johnson Hall … the oldest opera house in Maine, Johnson Hall has presented a wonderful range of plays, movies, concerts, and other arts for more than 150 years.

  •  Good Shepherd Food Bankworking with food donors, philanthropic supporters, and local partners, this organization reduces food-insecurity across Maine.
