Santa’s Sleigh

Santa’s Sleigh is a project the United Way of Aroostook does each year in conjunction with county municipalities.  The municipalities provide us with the number of children in their community aged birth to 18 who need gifts for Christmas and the United Way provides those gifts. We partner with towns from one end of Aroostook County to the other to provide that special something to make the holiday more memorable.  We typically provide toys for roughly 1,100 children. This year, 2016, we partnered with TAMC, The Aroostook Centre Mall, Presque Isle Rotary, Presque Isle Kiwanis, Star City IGA, Rathbun Lumber, and Presque Isle High School Varsity Club to ensure a bright holiday for many children. A highlight of the program this year was our participation in the 2016 Holiday Light Parade in Presque Isle.
