Our Community Involvement


Maine Beer and Wine Distributors and their employees avidly support their communities – whether it involves coaching a local youth sports team or making a capital investment enabling the construction of a much-needed community center.

Each year, our members contribute more than $350,000 to Maine non-profit organizations and community programs. Our employees donate an estimated 2,000 hours of their own time annually to charitable endeavors and community support.

Community involvement includes supporting the United Way.
