This holiday season, everyone knows we have two days for getting deals – Black Friday and Cyber Monday. This year, Maine Veterans’ Homes wants to invite you to join us in a new tradition – Giving Tuesday. On Giving Tuesday we have a chance to harness the collective power of individuals, communities, and organizations across Maine and across the world to benefit Maine’s veterans and families. But no matter how small…OR BIG your gift to Maine Veterans’ Homes this Giving Tuesday, you can rest easy knowing that all of it, every single penny, goes directly to the resident activities funds at our homes. This Giving Tuesday, your act of generosity CAN make a difference to Maine veterans and families.

As an independent nonprofit organization, Maine Veterans’ Homes relies on the generosity of individuals and organizations to help us provide activities and programs to improve the health and enjoyment of our residents. The MVH mission statement is Caring For Those Who Served, and daily, we provide care and comfort to approximately 600 veterans and spouses in our six facilities across Maine. We believe it is a privilege and our responsibility to provide care and support for those who honorably served our country and their families.
Improving the lives of Maine Veterans
Our residents enjoy being active and so our certified activities staff is always planning a variety of programs for our residents to enjoy. Musical events, games, parties, special meals, religious services and organized social events are just a few of the ways our activities staff keep things interesting for our residents. We have selected our resident activities funds to be the recipient of all gifts made online, however if you prefer to have your donation benefit a specific area of the home, a special project or even a particular event, just let us know in the additional comments section or complete the charitable donation form.
