Starting Monday, you can donate non-perishable food items and essentials at any of Maine’s eight welcome centers in the state.

“Everyone I spoke to during the 10-day week said, ‘It’s great because I want to help but I didn’t know how I could,'” said Curtis Picard, president and CEO of the leadership of Retail Association Maine.

The Maine Retail Association has partnered with the Maine Tourism Association to provide donations to Ukrainians struggling to access essentials like food and clothing during the war. They can achieve this by joining a retail association in Ukraine.

Members of the Maine Retail Association will donate clothing items and the Maine Tourism Association will collect non-perishable food items such as granola bars, canned goods and instant coffee from Maine residents. This makes it easier for people to help in a tangible way, even if they don’t have money to donate.

“The reality is you don’t have to ask Mainers out of their way,” Picard said. “They are amazing people who give to people.”

Visitor centers are open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. daily. They will be collecting donations until April 1. To find the addresses of these sites and view additional information, you can follow this link: https://www.retailmaine.org/ukraine-relief/
