Bangor Savings Bank Foundation is once again offering its unique, grant-making initiative, Community Matters More.
Each of the Foundation’s 48 non-profits will receive at least a $1,000 grant for participating in the program. They will be listed on a ballot and the public will be asked to vote for its favorite. The top vote-getting organizations in each region will receive $5,000. http://email.steadyvision.com/t/y/l/ahiiyt/olulkkjhk/j. There is an area on the ballot for write-in candidates. The top 20 write-in vote-getters will also receive a grant from the Bangor Savings Bank Foundation.
We would like to start a write-in campaign for St. Mary’s Nutrition Center. Participate by visiting www.bangor.com/cmm. Under the section, “Great Portland/Lewiston/Auburn”, type in “St. Mary’s Health System Nutrition Center of Maine” and click on the box to vote! Voting begins January 24, 2011 and ends March 7, 2011. Any Maine resident is eligible to vote. It’s an easy way to support the great work being done at the Nutrition Center to provide access to nutritious food and implement healthy and safe eating practices.
