Congdon’s supports organizations that help those in need and make the world a better place to live, particularly our local community. “Tithing Tuesdays” are a way to continue that and to build on the communal atmosphere of Congdon’s After Dark. While to “tithe” is traditionally associated with religious organizations, Congdon’s seeks to support any group that focuses on improving the lives of the people in the state of Maine, particularly York County.
