Baseball’s regular season will soon come to an end, and with it comes another successful season in the books for our Mainers Home Run Hits campaign! In fact, before the season even had ended, we were able to once again achieve our home run goal of donating $1,000 to Grahamtastic Connection, in conjunction with the Sanford Mainers.
Under our Mainers Home Run Hits campaign, SIS pledges to donate $100 for every home run, up to $1,000 in total donations. The catch is that the home run hit must be made by a player on Sanford’s New England Collegiate Baseball League team, and must occur during home games at Goodall Park; something that has provided some extra motivation to team players to perfect their skills.
Springvale-based Grahamtastic Connection provides free laptops, tablets and internet access to more than 150 seriously ill and hospitalized children yearly, to help these youth stay connected to friends and family as well as teachers and classmates. In addition, Grahamtastic has a lending library of 17 tele-presence robots for schools to borrow so these children can attend class remotely from their hospital beds or homes.
“It is a wonderful feeling when you’re rooting for an area team not only for their benefit, but for the benefit of a well-deserving organization like Grahamtastic,” said SIS Bank President & CEO Blaine Boudreau. “We’re glad to be able to continue our support of this amazing charity, and deliver on our goal for Home Run Hits once again.”
