Mid-Coast United Way at 55% of campaign goal

BATH — United Way of Mid Coast Maine has raised about $1 million, surpassing the halfway mark in its campaign to raise $1.93 million.

This year's fundraising effort ends Nov. 13.

"We need all your gifts, because our friends and neighbors need our help," campaign chairman Vin DiCara said in a press release. "We have excellent local agencies that stand ready to help them. What we need now is more donors to provide that final connection and get life-changing help to our fellow community members."

The organization aids people in Brunswick, Harpswell, and Sagadahoc and Lincoln counties. Last year it raised 98 percent of a $1.96 million goal.

United Way and 37 agencies with which it partners address basic needs such as health, education and financial stability. The organization also emphasizes attention to early childhood development.
