If you want to help people in York County who have been affected by the recent flooding, United Way is accepting financial donations for the York County Disaster Relief Fund.

?This fund is meant to help people put their lives back together over the next several weeks and months when the flooding is over,? says Barb Wentworth, Community Building Director at United Way of York County. ?It?s too soon to tell what those needs might be.?

Money collected will be distributed to appropriate organizations over the next few months based on people?s needs. Anyone looking to contribute to the immediate emergency efforts should donate directly to the American Red Cross of Southern Maine.

?It is the nature of Mainers to care about one another,? adds Wentworth. ?We?re providing a safe and easy way for people to do that.?

To make a special gift to the York County Disaster Relief Fund, you may send checks to:
