What we do:

Through fundraising events like our annual campaign drive and events like our Rock, Paper, Scissors Triple Crown Series, United Way of Oxford County invests in community programs that are focused on educational achievement, long-term financial stability, and improved health. United Way of Oxford County also support several initiatives in line with our goals these include the Food Pantry Project, Backpack Project, FamilyWize, Maine 2-1-1, and our Day of Caring. United Way of Oxford County focuses on bettering community conditions for all by bringing together businesses, nonprofits, municipalities, and the education system to create positive lasting changes.
