About Our Auction

In an effort to teach our students about community, charity, and gratitude, Maine East High School sponsors ME CARES, (Charitable Action Recognizing and Empowering Support) a club dedicated to researching, publicizing, and supporting an annual charitable cause as a school. This fall, the UN Climate Action Summit addressed the issue of the growing devastating impact climate change caused. Knowing this, our group decided to raise funds for The Ocean Cleanup project which has designed a natural solution to dispose of the tons of plastic found in our oceans each year. So far this school year, a dedicated group of 60 student volunteers have been planning a wide variety of fundraising events to raise awareness about the environment particularly plastics in our oceans.


This auction gives us the opportunity to teach our students the value of helping others, gives your business an opportunity to generously support our annual charitable campaign for The Ocean Cleanup project and will help advertise your business with students, families, faculty, business partners and alumni in all of our District 207 schools. ME CARES’ important work can only continue with the generous support of donors like you who believe in our mission. If you have any further questions, please contact club sponsor, Rachel Samlan, at 847-692-8305 or at
