The future is in good hands!

In the latest "Mask Up For ME video", Maine school kids hop on a Zoom call to ask us to be safe and wear a mask. And as we all know, they want to get back to their everyday lives just as much as the rest of us do, maybe even moreso, so for their sake, we should all try to do the right thing. We are so close to seeing the light at the end of this very long tunnel.

Mask Up for ME allows everyone in our community to show off their generosity and care for others by wearing a face covering in public places. Mask Up for ME also gives people a place to donate homemade cloth face coverings to supply those who are without.

Local residents who need face coverings and can’t supply their own masks are able to obtain them through their community partners’ distribution locations. Donated face coverings are free for the taking, professionally cleaned and packaged before being distributed.

You can help by making a financial donation to the United Way of Eastern Maine’s community face covering fund. All proceeds will go toward the purchase of reusable, cloth face coverings for those who cannot supply their own. gives you the option to donate $10, $25, $50, or whatever you can afford.

These masks are distributed to non profit organizations throughout the region and be available for individuals to access at specific locations in the community. Individuals needing a mask should reach out to their primary care providers directly, or contact Penquis at (207) 973-3500.

Over the past 10 monhts, Mask Up For ME has put together a ton of fun videos from Mainers, encouraging us to all do our part!

Folks like Bananas the UMaine mascot, the legendary George Hale, The Nite Show's Danny Cashman, Larry Geaghan, owner of the iconic Geaghan's Pub & Brewery, and many others, including John Palmer and his wife Sonja, who have become local legends for their hysterical outtakes from the “Buttery Flaky Crust” blooper commercial Dysart’s ran a few years back, have all joined the cause.
