United We CAN build food security in Mid-Maine communities!
United Way of Mid-Maine is teaming up with local businesses, organizations, and groups to support Mid-Maine food pantries. The United We CAN sculpture contest adds a fund twist to a traditional food drive. Teams will collect or purchase non-perishable food items and then design and build a sculpture with those items!
