Giving to our Communities
The Power to Give
We strive to give back to the communities in our service area by undertaking responsibilities in the neighborhoods where we work, in the schools we support, and in the environment. Our corporate sponsorship and community service programs are designed with one goal in mind: to care for the people we serve.
Full Plates Full Potential
We’re proud to have made a financial contribution to Full Plates, Full Potential—focused on providing meals to children in need.
We are proud to support EqualityMaine as its new top-level Visionary Sponsor. This $20,000 donation to the EqualityMaine Foundation will support community education programming and services. Our values are aligned in that we strive to create safe, welcoming environments that promote equality for our LGBTQ employees and customers.

Request Corporate Sponsorship
The social and economic vitality of the area we serve directly affects our business, so we strive towards a giving program directed to non-profit organizations working in or around our service area. Because we also support important social and family services through the annual United Way campaign, we do not accept solicitation from participating United Way agencies. We are also unable to grant requests from individuals.
In addition to providing financial assistance to selected non-profit organizations, we support our employees' volunteer efforts. Our employees are coaches, mentors, and scout leaders; they are volunteer firefighters, EMTs, and help with disaster relief; they serve food at soup kitchens and deliver meals to the homebound; and they are active in a variety of community-based theater, music, and arts organizations.
In the Schools
We support Maine schools, libraries and students from grade school to college. Find out more
