Sanford, Maine— Homeruns count even more at Partners Bank with our “Homeruns that Count” community action program, where Partners Bank donates $50 to a nonprofit for each Boston homerun at a home game. Through the month of August, program donations will be designated to Portsmouth, New Hampshire’s The Chase Home.

The Chase Home is an organization dedicated to providing supportive and restorative residential and family services to at-risk youth in a safe and nurturing environment. Originally founded as an orphanage in 1877, The Chase Home is one of the oldest non-profit organizations in the state of New Hampshire. Currently, they continue to provide preventative, residential, and community-based services to vulnerable youth and families in the state.

“We recognize The Chase Home as a valuable resouce that contributes to building a better today and tomorrow for our community. We are excited to have them as a recipient of our ‘Homeruns that Count’ program and will be rooting for lots of home game homeruns!” says Partners Bank President and CEO, Blaine Boudreau.

Upon learning that The Chase Home would be August’s “Homeruns that Count” recipient, The Chase Home Advancement Director, Robert Levey, shared, “I’m from New York and a Yankees fan, so this puts me in a tight spot. But I will figure that out,” he added with a laugh.

Anyone that would like to play along with their own homerun donations (for Boston or any other team!) can do so by visiting chasehome.org.

As of the end of July, the 2022 baseball season had scored up a total of $2,800 in donations that have been distributed to V-MAT, York County Shelter Programs, Inc., and Animal Welfare Society (AWS) in Kennebunk, Maine through Partners Bank’s “Homeruns that Count” program.
