Keep Me Warm & Project Heat Telethon

The Keep ME Warm Fund is a statewide partnership of the ten United Ways and ten Community Action Agencies with the goal of helping Maine people stay safe, warm and secure through public and private contributions, volunteerism and advocacy.  It is the only statewide program that provides emergency heating assistance and support to low-income households.
