Just when you think you can’t bear another piece of bad news, something good happens that lifts you up. Our happy news—extraordinarily good news—is that Vet2Vet Maine was one of the top vote-getters in Bangor Savings Bank’s Community Matters More campaign. As a result, Bangor Savings will present us with a check for $5,000 later this spring. These funds will be used to strengthen our program and carry us forward, particularly important right now, since we’ve had to postpone our Business Leaders Roundtable and our Beer & Wine fundraiser.
The Bangor Savings Bank Foundation will award more than $140,000 to 55 local nonprofit organizations this year. Each nominated organization receives $1,000, with the top two vote-getters in each region receiving $5,000.
Thank you, Bangor Savings and all of you (and V2VME friends) who supported us and cast their ballots to further our mission!
