I usually begin my letters to you by asking for your help. 

There’s no doubt about it, we need you more than ever.  But I wanted to take a moment to say thank you.  This has been a challenging time. 

Your continued support of Maine people with disabilities is inspirational to me, our staff and the people we serve.  It has kept our team going through the ups and downs over the past several months.  You have made such an impact on the lives of Maine people with disabilities.  Here are just a few things we were able to accomplish together:

  • Pine Tree Camp quickly innovated, opening two months early with remote programming to keep our campers connected during a time of isolation. Over the course of the summer, we shifted to bring Pine Tree Camp into the homes of 350 campers.  We also safely welcomed 400 campers and families to North Pond for Pine Tree Camp Adventure Day Pass. 
  • We continued to serve 40 of our youngest, most at-risk children providing safe, consistent access to our Early Learning Center. Our children not only maintained but were able to continue to develop skills they have worked so hard to build. 
  • We have infused the spirit of Pine Tree Camp into our adult day programming, getting our clients outside in small groups so that they could safely experience the restorative benefits of nature.

As I think about the year ahead, I am reminded that 2021 marks Pine Tree Society’s 85th anniversary.  Eighty-five years, thousands of lives transformed. 

I am also reminded of the history of this organization…established during the Great Depression to help children with disabilities live and play like other children.  The founding of Pine Tree Camp as World War II ended.  Our vital role treating and caring for children during the Polio epidemic in the 1950s. 

We’ve been through challenging times before.

The one constant?  The key to the success of the people we serve?  You.  Your continued support, during the good times and the bad, transforms lives.

The reimbursement Pine Tree Society receives for services only covers a portion of our costs.  Families caring for loved ones with disabilities have fewer and fewer resources to turn to for help.

Please donate today so that Pine Tree Society can continue to impact the lives of Maine people with disabilities during this challenging time.  We cannot do it without you.  Thank you for your continued support.  We are grateful.
