The weather is turning cooler, the leaves are beginning to fall, and for many, this season is full of warmth and comfort. Yet for others, this is not the case as they look for ways to secure basic needs like housing and food. We are therefore thrilled to announce our latest $500 gift to a deserving, local charity as part of our monthly Employee Donation Program: York County Shelter Programs is the chosen nonprofit for October’s donation.
York County Shelter Programs of Alfred, Maine was founded on the belief that everyone—regardless of income level, housing needs, mental or physical health issues, struggles with addiction, and other challenges associated with poverty and homelessness—deserves to be treated with respect and dignity. In fact, the YCSP provides a wide range of services that far exceed emergency shelter services alone, including addiction services, job training and food services.
Becky Gregoire, Teller at our Springvale branch, is the 31st employee to have the honor of naming a favorite charity to receive the $500 donation. Gregoire chose YCSP after her positive and impactful experience volunteering within the painting program during the Shelter’s Day of Caring sponsored by United Way, earlier this spring.
“It’s impressive and also humbling to know that York County Shelter Programs offers so much more than just emergency shelter services,” says SIS Bank President & CEO Blaine Boudreau. “Becky, your choice to support YCSP will help and make such a difference in the lives of so many local families and individuals!”
