During the fall of 2016, all sixteen counties participated in our MEA Retired Day of Caring. That means that all sixteen counties are able to request one hundred dollars to support their upcoming 2017 Day of Caring Project. This is a matching grant and it is expected that each county puts in at least one hundred dollars from their county budget. I will need a brief description of your project by the end of April 2017 and checks will be available in June 2017. Thank you for all you have done to make our annual Day of Caring a success. This will be our eighth Day of Caring. Most counties have a project design that works for their members and their area. If anyone feels they need support, let me know and we can share ideas.

In the spring of 2016, Jan reported:
MEA RETIRED’s Annual Day of Caring
Our Day of Caring combines the concepts of NEA’s Outreach to Teach and AARP’s Day of Service to honor September 11, 2001. This is an opportunity to give back to the communities in which we live and to the students we love. The more hands involved, the more we can accomplish!
Our goal is to make a difference in a school in every Maine County every year for our students and our communities.
We invite you to join us this coming September for our annual Day of Caring – projects vary by county.
