FEEDBACK FROM VOLUNTEERS, DONORS AND RECIPIENTS
I have supported UMC financially for many years and will continue to do so, as I know every dollar is used to strengthen our community.
--Jeanne from Owls Head
UMC benefits every community member, from donors to clients, students to patients, businesses, and social groups. Its reach is unequaled, and its presence is essential.
--Joe from Rockland
I can honestly say without UMC, many vital services in the Midcoast would not be available through so many worthy organizations.
