Mainers are all about making a difference and helping others out. It's just what we do!

Well, we want to celebrate all the Maine charities and organizations that work every day to make our communities better. It's time to shine a spotlight on them and give them the recognition they deserve.

Each month during 2022, we will feature charities in our community who are contributing through their work helping Mainers.

For the month of January, we want to highlight Ruth's Reusable Resources.

This Portland-based non-profit helps provide students and teachers across the state with supplies.

Talk about making a difference in Maine! Bravo, Ruth's Reusable Resources!
