Twelve Gardiner residents were displaced, many downtown businesses had to be shut down or were damaged and four historic downtown buildings were severely damaged during a large fire on Thursday evening. 

This means that people and businesses in our community need YOUR help. They need to find a place to live, and they need help to start rebuilding their lives and careers. Please consider a donation to the fund that will help the displaced directly. Funds will be managed by United Way of Kennebec Valley and a City of Gardiner committee.

*All donations are tax deductible, as donations to the United Way of Kennebec Valley*

If you would like to donate via cash or check, you can drop it off or send it to the United Way office:
121 Commercial Street, Augusta, ME 04330

If you have questions, feel free to contact United Way of Kennebec Valley or the City of Gardiner.

September 29th 2015 ......,I was one of the fire victims that was displaced....I did not receive what I was supposed to receive.......neither did several other victims who I have been in touch w/. Only one person received what they were supposed to. Rumors spreading around town that these funds have been misappropriated & that means stolen. I would appreciate some help investigating this. Several displaced occupants of 235 Water St. received nothing. I have no winter clothing. Neither does any of us except one person whom I hear had their rent paid for the next year. We lost everything we owned, none of us had any insurance....why did one person receive lots of help , when others received nothing!????
