Maine Veterans Project

Maine Veterans Project
Bangor, ME

The Maine Veterans Project was born from an outstanding ATV ride that raised funds to fight veteran suicide. After seeing the overwhelming support from our awesome community, I decided it was time to take our event to a new level and the Maine Veteran Project came to fruition. We are dedicated to preventing veteran suicide right here in Maine for our Maine veterans. Since our conception on July 09, 2015, MVP has provided an impressive number of home improvement services, benefit-related services, heating fuel assistance and many other services.
