LeeCares: Charitable Giving & Community Support

Every Mainer has been impacted in some way by the pandemic. LEE was fortunate: While our showrooms briefly closed, we were able to re-open and continue doing business in the "new normal." But, we knew that for other people the effects of the pandemic would continue.

That's why we launched LeeCares, our effort to offer support to the people in our communities who were under stress. In 2021, Lee spent more than $100,000 in support of:

  • Maine Hospital Workers. LEE had thousands of meals from local restaurants delivered to staff at hospitals throughout Maine.

  • Maine Teachers. LEE celebrated the teachers from each county nominated for the Maine Teacher of the Year Award with a staff luncheon at their schools and with the funding of a classroom project.

  • Maine Farmers. To encourage people to get out to their local Maine farmers' market, LEE purchased and donated thousands of farmers' market gift cards.

  • Maine Kids. LEE partnered with the United Way to provide fully outfitted back-to-school backpacks for children who needed them. 

  • Mainers in Need. Good Shepherd Food Bank plays a vital role in fighting hunger in Maine. LEE's donations the past two years during the holidays have helped GSFB provide more meals to more Mainers.

In addition, LEE continued its support of the Maine Organic Farmers & Growers Association, Maine Public, Maine Conservation Voters and many more worthy organizations. 

We love living and working in Maine, and we want to see Maine continue to thrive. LEE is for ME!
