BATH — United Way of Mid Coast Maine raised more than $2 million in a fundraising campaign, surpassing its $1.92 million goal.
“This is a great success,” said Campaign Chair Dave Nadeau of Riley Insurance at the Nov. 3 campaign finale. “The campaign may be drawing to a close, but the work of United Way, its staff, volunteers and 38 partner agencies never ends, working together, addressing, solving problems, and improving the lives of others.”
Employees at many workplaces – such last year’s Campaign Excellence Award winner, Bath Savings Institution – gave more to United Way this year, according to the organization. Division Awards were given to Downeast Energy and FHC, Inc. (Commerce and Industry Division), Brunswick Schools (Education Division), Five County Credit Union (Finance and Professional Firms Division), Mid Coast Health Services (Health Division), the Town of Brunswick (Public Service Division) and North Stores, second floor (Bath Iron Works Division).
Wright-Pierce in Topsham received the overall Campaign Excellence Award. Bath Iron Works employees raised more than $815,000 for United Way. In recognition of this accomplishment, the Bath Iron Works Employee Campaign Team received United Way’s Volunteer of the Year Award.
