We believe that giving back to the community has helped us grow. As a longtime business in the Maine Seacoast area, Plixer International, Inc. contributes significant time and resources to those organizations that make a positive impact to the region, as well as the people who live and work here.

Here are some of the organizations we've supported over the years:

The Make-A-Wish Foundation

Since 1980, the Make-A-Wish Foundation® has given hope, strength, and joy to children with life-threatening medical conditions. From their humble beginnings with one boy's wish to be a police officer, they've evolved into an organization that grants a child's wish in the U.S. every 40 minutes.

The Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America

A non-profit, volunteer-driven organization dedicated to finding the cure for Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, it was founded in 1967 by Irwin M. and Suzanne Rosenthal, William D. and Shelby Modell, and Henry D. Janowitz, M.D.


Working in more than 80 Maine communities from Kittery to Bangor, Sweetser maintains counseling offices, a respected medical team, two schools for students with special needs, 17 residences, a training institute, a recovery center, and campuses in Belfast, Plymouth and Saco. More than 800 employees and hundreds of volunteers are committed to the vision of helping people find promising futures.

The Salvation Army

The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian Church. Its message is based on the Bible, and its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.

The National MS Society

A collective of passionate individuals who want to do something about multiple sclerosis now to move together toward a world free of this disease. MS stops people from moving—this society exists to make sure it doesn't.

Grahamtastic Connection

Grahamtastic Connection offers free computers and Internet access for educational purposes to children with cancer and other serious illnesses.

American Cancer Society

The American Cancer Society is a nationwide, community-based, voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem. They seek to prevent cancer, save lives, and diminish suffering from cancer through research, education, advocacy, and service.
