United Way of Eastern Maine is currently raising money for its annual campaign, with a goal of 2.1 million dollars. Last year alone, the Community Fund allowed United Way to allocate $966,000 to local education, income, and health basic needs programs; saved the community $395,000 in health and medical costs; raised over $300,000 worth of food for local area pantries; coordinated over $280,000 worth of volunteer work in Eastern Maine.
Here at United Way of Eastern Maine, we're working to create lasting change by mobilizing the caring power of our communities toward the effects of a better education, improved financial standing, and a higher quality of health for our neighbors.
Many people who live and work in Eastern Maine face tough challenges on a daily basis - some may not know where their next meal is coming from, while others have a strong need for a Mentor, Tutor, or Reader. The need for a helping hand is not limited to adults either. There are young children who do not have enough food on the weekend and are going hungry.
We hope you're able to explore the site and learn about the funded programs and initiatives that are helping our community grow stronger. Check out our focus on improving our community's education, income and health.
We're all in this together.
Let's make a difference for our neighbors.
Thank you to all who participate in the United Way Campaign and a special thank you to our cornerstone companies:
