United Way branch, CMP establish storm relief fund

AUGUSTA — At the request of Gov. Angus King, Central Maine Power and the United Way of Kennebec Valley have worked together to set up the Maine Storm Relief Fund to help Mainers recover from the devastating ice storm that hit the state.

The Maine Storm Relief Fund will be used to help social service agencies help people meet emergency food, housing and other storm-related needs, and to help them restore homes damaged by fallen trees, frozen plumbing and other storm effects.

All nonprofit social service agencies throughout the state who provide such critical storm relief assistance can apply for money from the fund by contacting the United Way of Kennebec Valley at 626-3400. No United Way affiliation is necessary to apply.

CMP and the United Way of Kennebec Valley have each donated $10,000 to the fund, while the Maine State Troopers Association has donated $5,000.

Contributions should be sent to Maine Storm Relief Fund, c/o United Way of Kennebec Valley, 2 Mulliken Court, Augusta, Maine 04330.
