‘In this together’ shirt to benefit Student Crisis Fund

“In this together.”

That’s the message that has resonated with the University of Maine student population and the University of Maine System through a most unusual spring semester. 

University Bookstore, located on the lower level of the Memorial Union, is doing what it can to help bring that message to support students through the Student Crisis Fund.

“The mission of the bookstore is always about students, providing them with the resources they need to be successful,” says University Bookstore associate director Dean Graham. “With so many students impacted by this pandemic we hope this fundraising effort can contribute to enabling students to continue with their education.”

Proceeds from the shirt, which features a Life Is Good Company design, will be donated to the Student Crisis Fund created by the University of Maine Foundation.

According to the Foundation, the fund provides “emergency assistance for undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Maine or any of its outreach centers or its regional campus for which the student has no other source of funds.”

The limited-edition shirt, priced at $24.99, can be ordered on the University Bookstore website. There is free shipping on all bookstore orders through the end of May.
