Partners Bank, Through Employee Donation Program, Donates $1,000 to Help Give Families A Place to Start
Partners Bank’s Sandy Mower was selected to designate the Employee Donation Program contribution for this month. Mower chose A Place to Start to be the recipient of the $1,000 donation.
Sanford, Maine—Partners Bank will donate $1,000 to A Place to Start for its May 2022 Employee Donation Program contribution, as designated by Sandy Mower, Part Time Loan Servicing Associate.
A Place to Start offers support to families with a loved one diagnosed with dementia through personal consultations as well as mentorship, navigation, and fostering community. “In our experience, dementia is an ever-changing disease affecting you, your loved one and your family,” they say. “There are always new issues, situations and emotional support needs that arise. We want to help take some of the stress of the unknown away!”
When Mower learned that she had the opportunity to select a nonprofit to receive a donation, her response was immediate: “I would like A Place to Start to be my recipient.” The decision was personal for Mower—she and her family are caring for a loved one with dementia, and A Place to Start has proven to be an invaluable resource for them.
“It is always a pleasure to get to know some of the organizations that our employees choose for this very special donation,” said Partners Bank President and CEO Blaine Boudreau. “A Place to Start is certainly an organization that is needed to help people through a trying time in life.”
Mower is the 74th Partners Bank employee to be given the honor of designating a nonprofit to receive a donation through the Partners Bank Employee Donation Program. Employees are selected monthly and at random. Partners Bank has now donated a total of $42,500 to employee-selected nonprofits through this program.
