COVID-19 How You Can Help

While each of our Homes have a supply of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) on hand, the nationwide shortage of these items is making it difficult to fully prepare in the event a resident is diagnosed with COVID-19.

Many of you have asked how you can support Maine Veterans’ Homes at this time and we sincerely appreciate your kind thoughts.

For those who can contribute monitarilly, we have established a COVID-19 Response Fund where gifts to this fund will go to support keeping the virus out of our Homes.

The nationwide shortages of these items are making it difficult to buy them, however here are some of the items we are trying to acquire.  Click on any of the items to make a donation.
