Martin’s Point Shows a Lot of Heart at the United Way Kickoff and Sculpture Contest

Posted by

A warm day greeted more than a dozen co-workers who joined together on Sept. 15 to help kickoff the United Way of Greater Portland’s United We CAN campaign with a food drive and can sculpture contest in Monument Square.

Employees donated over 1,000 items, weighing 865.2 pounds, during our food drive.

“We put a lot of heart into our can sculpture,” said Russ Philips, “This was a great event with a LOT of food going to a great cause.”

This year’s effort brought in enough food for more than 16,000 meals, United Way said. The cans will be donated to the Wayside Food Programs and distributed to food pantries around Cumberland County.
