Staggering Statistics on Poverty in the U.S. – and It’s Happening Here, Too
The United Way has released a report illustrating where our country is, despite a reduction in unemployment since the 2008 recession ended.
2018 Applications to UMC’s Grants Program reflect the same reality that is illustrated in this study – even working families can’t afford the basics, right here in Midcoast Maine! We are currently reviewing nearly 60 applications in our four focus areas that are asking for more than $700,000 of support to address the needs of our friends and neighbors.
You can help right now in our local area by making a donation – 100% of donations go toward our Grants Program.
