SANFORD, Maine—Coming off a year of challenging times, Waban will still push forward with its annual telethon, going virtual once again for the cause. Partners Bank has stepped up to the plate to donate $5,000 to Waban in support of this year’s telethon.

This year, Waban will be holding its 50th Annual Telethon to help raise funds for the organization. Funds raised through the Telethon are crucial to the Fraser Ford Child Development Center and the success of children with autism and other intellectual disabilities in our community. Proceeds help support developmental therapy, specialized equipment, therapeutic recreation, and other educational services.

“Waban has been an integral part of this community for decades,” Partners Bank President and CEO, Blain Boudreau said. “Every person deserves to have a chance a fulfilling life and Waban and its staff have been a wonderful asset to those who need their services the most.”

The Telethon will take place virtually on March 20 between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. and can be viewed online at waban.org or through Waban’s Facebook page at facebook.com/wabanprojects; on Atlantic Broadband’s public access channels in the Sanford market; and can also be heard live locally on AM 1220 and 104.3 FM The Legends radio station.
