SACO, Maine – MaineHealth Care at Home (MHCAH) today announced that it has been awarded a one-year grant totaling $5,000 by United Way of York County (UWYC). This investment will directly support the agency’s Community Health program through which immunization, foot care, and wellness services are delivered to community members across the region. UWYC creates meaningful, lasting change by connecting people and resources to improve lives and create better communities.
Our partnership shares a vision of a strong York County based on a foundation of trust, respect and a willingness to collaborate. Together, we can make a difference in the way we learn, live, and work to enjoy longer and better lives. It is UWYC’s belief that working together we can do more than either organization can accomplish alone.
Thanks to the continued support of many individuals, businesses and organizations throughout York County this year, UWYC investments totaled $662,588, supporting 59 programs from 39 organizations. “Considering these very challenging times, we are enormously grateful to those companies and individuals throughout York County who were able to support our fundraising efforts this part year,” said UWYC President & CEO Brian Petrovek.
