UWEM welcomes Somerset County!

January 18, 2022

Dear Friends of United Way of Eastern Maine,

Thank you for your continued support of the United Way of Eastern Maine and our mission. Your support helps UWEM and its partners help improve the lives of 1 in 4 people in our region.

Today, I am contacting you with some wonderful news. Over the last year we have been working with our colleagues at United Way of Mid Maine to create a new strategic alignment. Today a formal announcement will publicize this geographic expansion for the United Way of Eastern Maine into Somerset County. View this link for the formal announcement.

Additionally, we have created an FAQ page, that will assist with understanding what this means to the people in Hancock, Penobscot, Piscataquis, Somerset, Waldo, and Washington Counties. This partnership will create efficiencies and increase our ability to raise more resources to serve those that need it most. I am happy to answer any questions you may have and I invite you to contact me directly. We look forward to this next chapter of UWEM’s history.

All the best,

Shirar Patterson
President & CEO, United Way of Eastern Maine
