MaineGeneral Health’s 
Farms, Forks & Friends!

We offer our heartfelt thanks to the 230 guests who joined us on April 27 to dine and laugh in derby style. Because of your kindness, we raised an astonishing $69,224 – and had a blast doing it!

Our sponsors laid a solid foundation of support. Add to that the collective generosity of everyone who contributed and all four of our causes will be able to make great strides toward meeting patient needs:

  • CenteringPregnancy: their $13,761 will support program facilitation and help purchase educational tools and medical equipment. These resources are desperately needed as we look to grow and support this program and care for the wellbeing of both moms and babies in our communities.
  • Comfort Care at Glenridge: with $15,336 in contributions, they are closer to enhancing this newly renovated wing for terminal patients with an addition that includes a family room, kitchenette, children’s play area, porch and garden to make these final days the best they can be.
  • Prevention & Health Living (PHL): $17,076 will help fund emergency food bags for MaineGeneral patients who are hungry; naloxone kits, a lifesaving medication for individuals experiencing drug overdose; and transportation vouchers to help increase access to services. Additionally, funds will pay for equipment and program supplies to expand health education programs into more communities.
  • Substance Use Disorder Treatment Support: winner of this year’s coveted KSB $5K bonus, will receive an amazing $23,051! These dollars will help sustain recovery by meeting basic needs such as clothing, food, toiletries, transportation, medication and temporary housing - helping us address the community opioid epidemic.

We’ve seen what can be accomplished when giving hearts gather. What is possible when a community comes together is truly something to celebrate. We are grateful for your support and for the support of our wonderful sponsors, vendors, farmers and volunteers – this evening would not have been possible without them. Thank you!
