Heat Week

Every year, thousands are faced with choosing between heating their homes and basic needs like food and medicine. Partners Bank donated $200,000 to the Keep ME Warm fund with the opportunity for an additional $50,000 match. Your support of Heat Week, a fuel assistance fundraising effort between Partners Bank and WMTW supporting the Keep ME Warm Fund, can help our friends and neighbors in the communities we serve stay safe and warm in their homes this winter. Thank you!

Keep ME Warm provides emergency heating assistance through a statewide partnership of United Ways of Maine and Community Action Agencies. These funds are a safety-net resource administered after all other avenues for fuel have been exhausted to assist individuals directly or designated to local organizations that provide emergency fuel assistance, including faith-based programs and nonprofit agencies.
