United Way of Eastern Maine raises funds each year to distribute to agencies that offer health and human services to improve the lives of everyone in our community. Your United Way gift stays here to help our local community provide child care, youth programs, patient services and support, help for those living with disabilities, counseling, and so much more.
The Boys & Girls Club of Bangor is one of over 50 programs and initiatives which benefits from the generous contributions received by United Way of Eastern Maine. The funds we receive allow us to offer programming (including transportation, healthy and nutritious snacks, homework help, and access to amazing mentors – all FREE of charge) so that every child, regardless of their situation, can walk through our doors and participate in life-changing programs and opportunities!
We have been highlighted in the United Way 2016 video. Take a look!
COLE LAND TRANSPORTATION MUSEUM
The purpose of the Cole Land Transportation Museum is to collect, preserve, and display (before they disappear forever) a cross section of Maine's land transportation equipment from which this and future generations will gain knowledge of the past.
The Museum records and displays U.S. military memorabilia to forever remind this and future generations of the high price our comrades have paid to protect our freedom. In doing so, they hope to inspire and challenge the young people of today to continue on in the footsteps of pioneers who have built our state and country.
Generous scholarship funding from the Cole Land Transportation Museum has allowed the Boys & Girls Club to open our doors to several additional children, who otherwise might not have been able to attend programming, during the school year and summer months. With this gift, these children and their families will benefit from our outcome-driven Club experience, resulting in academic success, good character and citizenship, and healthy lifestyles.
