Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!

I first learned of STRIVE when working for Steve Sinclair, our former Maine Division Manager. Steve always spoke very highly about STRIVE as his daughter, Stephanie, in fact, benefits considerably from the programs that STRIVE has to offer. Over the years, Steve and I often spoke of our (UPS's) hopes to find a way to support our neighbor (STRIVE), a very worthy organization that literally borders the Portland UPS property. Steve and his wife, Gayl, have been active supporters of STRIVE for many years. Gayl has also enjoyed volunteering over the past few years with several STRIVE fundraising events. Whereas many other area companies are now supporting this effort, I'm proud to say that the concept was born when we at UPS approached STRIVE with the idea.

STRIVE is an amazing organization that serves tweens, teens, and young adults with developmental disabilities, with an emphasis on socialization, transition, innovation, vocation, and education. Families from all over Maine and beyond travel to STRIVE to benefit from the programs they offer. STRIVE continues to offer ground breaking and innovative programs with their only limit being the funding available. I've had the distinct privilege to spend a considerable amount of time with the STRIVE community, and while I'm always very humbled, they never cease to amaze me with their accomplishments and addictive positive personalities. Seriously, we drive by this small, very basic looking establishment over a thousand time a week, with little knowledge of what takes place within its walls. This fundraising event aims to change that reality.

Note to Northeast District UPSers: If able to pledge, please enter your center and SLIC, or Staff function, in the "Comment Field" while entering your donation. I guarantee that your pledge will credit back to your center or staff functions fund raising account as you can help meet your individual campaign goal while helping me help STRIVE. 

Communities are stronger when everyone is involved. 

     Thank You! 

Donating through this website is simple, fast, and totally secure. It's also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.
