Dover-Foxcroft, ME: Recently, the United Bikers of Maine (UBM)-Piscataquis County held a fundraiser ride for the Charlotte White Center (CWC). The UBM- Piscataquis County does fundraiser rides for non-profit organizations throughout Piscataquis County and this time it was Charlotte White Center’s turn. UBM-Piscataquis County not only rides for enjoyment, they ride to help those in need. On a hot and sunny morning in July, the bikers started their ride to benefit the Charlotte White Center in Dover-Foxcroft, traveled to Mount Katahdin in Millinocket and ended their ride at CWC’s Administration building, back in Dover-Foxcroft. The clients and staff of CWC were thrilled when 20+ bikes carrying a group of UBM members rode into the parking lot. A BBQ celebration with hamburgers and hotdogs ensued and both organizations mingled and shared stories. UBM-Piscataquis County, currently a 90+ member group, raised $1,200 for the Charlotte White Center and its services, which range from day program services to residential services for individuals with cognitive or developmental disabilities, behavioral or mental health issues, or acquired brain injuries. UBM raised funds through a donation for the riders to participate, selling t-shirts, gaining sponsorships, etc., with all monies raised going to the CWC.
The clients and staff at CWC were very grateful for the biker’s generosity and many hugs and smiles were shared.
THANK YOU, UBM-Piscataquis County!!!
