Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senator Susan Collins met with Courtney Yeager of United Way of Kennebec Valley, Sarah Ennis of United Way of Aroostook, and Alan Smith of United Way of Mid-Maine in her Washington, D.C., office to discuss the work their organizations do on behalf of low-income individuals and families throughout Maine.


“United Way organizations in Maine strengthen communities and enhance the wellbeing of individuals and families throughout our state.  They provide a lifeline to many Mainers by helping to connect them with resources and improving access to education, health care, and other services,” said Senator Collins.  “Courtney, Alan, and Sarah are doing outstanding work for those in Kennebec, Somerset, and Aroostook counties.”


United Way is engaged in nearly 1,800 communities across more than 40 countries and territories worldwide, including 10 organizations in Maine.  The organization is focused on creating community-based and community-led solutions that strengthen the cornerstones for a good quality of life: education, financial stability, and health.
