Maine Woods Development Announces Veteran Townhome Giveaway

BANGOR, ME – In a heartfelt salute to our nation’s heroes, Maine Woods is announcing a special giveaway on Veterans Day. One deserving veteran in the Bangor area will be presented with keys to a brand new townhouse as a token of gratitude for their service and sacrifice.

“We can never say thank you enough to the men and women who have so bravely sacrificed so much to help protect our country,” said Emily Ellis, owner of the Maine Woods Subdivision. “While this giveaway is a big opportunity, and it can potentially create a life-changing living situation for one of our country’s best and bravest, it still represents a small token of our immense gratitude to those who have served our nation selflessly.”

Interested veterans or veterans and their families should enter the contest for themselves before Oct. 20, 2023. Those interested in entering can visit the website at and click on the Veteran Home Giveaway to apply. Users can then follow the instructions on the form to submit their entry. To be eligible, United States Veterans must be willing to move or stay in Bangor, Maine and submit a 300-500 word essay of why they want to make the Maine Woods their home. Additional rules can be found on the website.

The Maine Woods Subdivision is a forthcoming development located off Lancaster Avenue in Bangor, near Essex Woods & Bangor Dog Park. Once finished, the development will consist of thirty duplexes, each with two 3-bedroom/2 bath townhouses, with fiber internet connectivity and services including lawn care and snowplowing for all residents. The Maine Veterans’ Home and the CareerCenter Veterans Services are both nearby, offering specialized support and resources for veterans.

A recent survey by WalletHub ranked Maine at the top of the New England states, and eleventh in ranking the most charitable states in the country. The survey combined charitable donations with volunteering and service. 

“Mainers have a tendency to give back,” said Ellis. “It’s ingrained into us from an early age. We are also thankful for the service of the veterans in our country. The idea of giving back by bringing a veteran into a new – and, quite possibly a better – living situation just makes sense. It’s the right thing to do. Our subcontractors, suppliers and everyone involved are thrilled to be a part of this.” 

The winning entry will be chosen by the end of October, and the keys to the new townhouse will be handed over on Veterans Day weekend.
