Our Initiatives


A project of Helping Hands With Heart and Heart of Maine United Way, Bundle connects people in the Maine Highlands with important services and caring support for young kids, expecting parents, and families.

We all want children to thrive. And we want the people taking care of them to thrive too. Maybe you need help with a newborn, one-on-one advice from a nurse, a hand paying bills, or tips on finding healthy food. Created by nurses, home visitors, parents, and local Piscataquis partners, Bundle is a website and a community-based effort to help it all feel a little less overwhelming. In a few quick taps on the website, you can find the support you need and the numbers to call.

The Bundle Box Program distributes free care boxes to every family with a new baby in the Maine Highlands region. It’s another part of our effort to connect caregivers with free local services and a sense of support. (Who doesn’t love a care package?)

Bundle is currently a pilot project in the Maine Highlands region. Heart of Maine United Way intends to grow the reach and impact of this program within the Maine Highlands and across our region in the coming years.
