SANFORD, Maine—Partners Bank is proud to announce that the Alzheimer’s Association, Maine Chapter, has been awarded the Bank’s latest $500 gift from its monthly Employee Donation Program. Roger Guerin, who was randomly selected to designate a charity for January, is the 46th employee to participate in this program.
Serving the entire state of Maine from its Scarborough office, the Alzheimer’s Association, Maine Chapter, provides education and support to all those facing Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia—including those living with the disease, caregivers, health care professionals and families. The organization is also committed to advocating for the needs and rights of individuals facing Alzheimer’s disease and advancing critical research toward methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure.
This cause is particularly important to Guerin—a SVP/CFO who is retiring in February after 32 years at Partners Bank—since he lost his mother to the disease in November 2014. A dedicated advocate who participates with his family every year in the Alzheimer’s Walks, Guerin specially requested that the donation be made in his mother’s memory.
“Alzheimer’s is a devastating disease, with 28,000 patients and 69,000 caregivers in Maine alone,” says Partners Bank President & CEO Blaine Boudreau. “Roger’s donation to the Alzheimer’s Association, Maine Chapter, will hopefully play some role in helping others who face the same challenges he did.”
