Keep ME Warm

January 28, 2021, 5:00 AM8:00 PM

United Ways in Maine are partnering with NEWS CENTER Maine to hold our first ever Virtual Project Heat telethon in support of our United Way Keep ME Warm Fund!
Thursday, January 28, 2021
from 5AM to 8PM
Project HEAT Telethon
Volunteers across the state will be standing by to take your call!
Your support can help our friends and neighbors stay safe and warm in their homes this winter. Together, we can bring warmth and stability to hundreds of households across Maine.
Keep ME Warm provides emergency heating assistance through a statewide partnership of Maine’s United Ways and Community Action Agencies. Donations are distributed through a formula based on federal Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) percentages and population, and are used to assist individuals directly, or designated to local organizations that provide emergency fuel assistance, including faith-based programs and nonprofit agencies. 
Keep ME Warm is the only statewide fuel assistance fundraising effort in the state of Maine.
The need for heating assistance in Maine has increased significantly in the last few years, driven by the escalating cost of living expenses and decreased federal funding, combined with changes to federal guidelines that have made over 4,000 Mainers ineligible for LIHEAP. Thousands of Mainers are faced with choosing between heating their homes and basic needs like food and medicine.
Thank you for helping to make the winter warmer and safer for Maine families.
