Keep ME Warm campaign receives over $220,000

More than 1,100 individual donors and 20 corporations and foundations contributed to this year's Keep ME Warm campaign, together raising $220,617 to provide approximately 2,750 Mainers with emergency heating assistance, United Way of Greater Portland reported.
Since its inception, Keep ME Warm has distributed over $1.5 million to United Ways and Community Action Agencies statewide.
United Way of Greater Portland serves as the coordinator of Keep ME Warm, which is the only statewide fuel assistance fundraising effort in Maine. Donations are accepted year-round at www.keepmewarm.org.
Significant support for the 2013 Keep ME Warm campaign was provided by Dead River Company, the John T. Gorman Foundation, and the Project Heat telethon held by WCSH-6/WLBZ-2.
Information on heating assistance and weatherization services is available through 2-1-1 Maine, a statewide health and human services information and referral service created by the United Ways of Maine, in partnership with The Opportunity Alliance and the State of Maine.
