Help us Heat 144 Howe!

Heat 144 Howe is a unique challenge during the fall. We have a tree with 144 leaves. Each leaf represents a dollar amount, from $1 all the way up to $144. When you total it all up, it equals $10,000 – close to the amount we need to heat our building located at 144 Howe Street.

Select a leaf and make a donation in that amount, whether $2, $20 or $120, every little bit counts! 

Are You Ready for the Challenge?!

Sign up to participate in the ENDURANCE HIKING CHALLENGE at the Maine Summit Trek for Tree on Sunday, Oct. 29th!
How many times can you reach the top of Lost Valley?!
