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 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 900 children.  United Way works with a many partners and the community at large to ensure a brighter holiday for county children.  A highlight of the program is our participation in the Holiday Light Parade in  Presque Isle.
