SANFORD, MAINE—Partners Bank announces the latest participants in the Partners Bank Employee Donation Program, in which an employee is randomly selected every month to choose a deserving nonprofit to receive a $1,000 donation. In the months of April, May, and June of 2023, each selected employee chose a unique organization to receive this special, employee-directed donation.  

In April, Kim Stewart, Partners Bank AVP Mortgage Consultant, selected the Sanford-Springvale YMCA’s Trafton Senior Center as her recipient. The center provides individuals 50 and older with opportunities to socialize and participate in learning and wellness opportunities. “This program is very near and dear to my heart,” said Stewart, who also serves as vice chair of the board of directors for the Sanford-Springvale YMCA. “I’m very honored to have this opportunity!” 

May’s designation was made to Alzheimer’s Association by Partners Bank VP Director of Human Resources, Cheryl Patstone. The Alzheimer’s Association leads the way to end Alzheimer’s and all other dementia by accelerating global research, driving risk reduction and early detection, and maximizing quality care and support.  “Over the past three years, I have watched my Dad progress through the stages of Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease,” Patstone shared, speaking to how the organization and its mission has touched her life personally. “So many families are impacted by this horrible disease, which makes this donation an easy choice for me to make.”   

June’s designee, Mark Couture, AVP Cash Management Specialist, selected Seacoast Mental Health Center of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, as his designee. The center works to provide high quality and accessible mental health and substance use disorder services for all ages and stages of need. “Mental health is a hugely important health care issue that impacts almost everyone, either directly or indirectly,” Couture notes. “Seacoast Mental Health Center serves seacoast New Hampshire in traditional services as well as creative outreach. I am thrilled that the Bank can provide support to this organization, making a difference in individual lives as well as the community.” 

These Employee Donations mark the 87th $1,000 donation that has been made through the Partners Bank Employee Donation Program.
