“Partners for World Health is delighted to work with One Longfellow Square to ensure that urgently needed medical equipment and supplies will be sent to Ukraine and to Ukrainian Refugees in Poland. Supplies have already left Portland by air and sea and more is greatly needed. These supplies not only help those in the war zone, but those fleeing across the border and  send a message that people in Portland, Maine support them.” Elizabeth McLellan, CEO and Founder. 

Partners for World Health (PWH) collects medical supplies and equipment from healthcare facilities, manufacturers, other organizations, and individuals. We sort, evaluate, repackage, and prepare these supplies and equipment for distribution to individuals, communities, and healthcare facilities in need both locally and internationally. Our work limits the impact on the environment by diverting discarded materials from landfills and provides needed health care resources to the developing world. PWH aims to improve health conditions by sending medical personnel on medical missions to developing countries and educating New England communities about global health issues.

Covid-19 Protocols:

We are very excited to be hosting live music shows again in our listening room. OLS is committed to providing a safe environment for all who work, listen, or perform live music in our venue. Because our venue is so small, we will require all staff, volunteers, performers, and patrons to show proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 when they attend OLS events AND to wear masks indoors unless they are actively drinking, eating, or performing.

Proof of vaccine must come directly from the health care provider that performed the vaccination and can be a photo or physical copy of the vaccination card or record with an accompanying photo ID. Full vaccination means that the date of the performance you are attending is:

* at least 14 days after your second dose of an FDA or WHO authorized two dose COVID-19 vaccine, or

* at least 14 days after your single dose of an FDA or WHO authorized single dose COVID vaccine.

We hope we can ease these restrictions once further progress has been made reducing transmission of the virus. Until then we greatly appreciate your patience and cooperation.

One Longfellow Square does not assume liability; the ticket holder will assume all risks involved. By purchasing a ticket to this event you agree to assume full liability for any risks incurred before, during and after the event and agree to the current Terms of Use.
