South Berwick, Maine—
Partners Bank and Aroma Joe’s recently partnered up to raise $1,511 in funds for the South Berwick Community Food Pantry with a traditional lemonade stand at South Berwick’s Strawberry Festival on June 25, 2022. Lemonade was donated by Aroma Joe’s and served up by a crew of 12 Partners Bank volunteers. Both companies made additional $250 contributions, bringing the total donation to the organization to $2,011.

A total of 32 gallons divided amongst more than 350 cups were sold out by 3:00 on Saturday afternoon. “It was hot, but the crowds still came out,” recalls Karyn Scharf Morin, Partners Bank SVP, Branch Administration. “This was a great opportunity for us to get out there and to do something good for the community.”

On July 1, Scharf Morin and Richard Goodenough of Partners Bank and Brian Sillon of Aroma Joe’s met at South Berwick Community Food Pantry to present a check to pantry organizers and volunteers Dave Stansfield, Mary Stansfield, Mike Ouellette, and Julia Ouelette. Partners Bank thanks all that made this sweet donation possible—Aroma Joe’s, our employee volunteers, and all Strawberry Festival patrons that purchased a cup of lemonade from our booth.
