Huntington Common Charitable Fund Donates $60,000
KENNEBUNK, MAINE – The Kennebunk Savings Bank Foundation’s Huntington Common Charitable Fund (HCCF) is approaching the second-quarter deadline for new grant proposals. The HCCF seeks to improve the lives of older adults (65 and older) in York County, Maine. The fund has paid out nearly $60,000 in grants so far in 2021.
“Older adults are a vital population within our Maine communities,” said Bradford C. Paige, President and CEO of Kennebunk Savings. “It’s a privilege to be the stewards of this fund, and to see the innovative programs that local area nonprofits are putting together to help older adults stay connected and focused on wellness right now.” A few of the recent grants have included a York County Community Action program that helps older adults by providing small to medium-sized home repairs and modifications, meal programs for seniors in need through Table of Plenty, a confidential credit check station for the York County Elder Abuse Task Force and an integrative cycling program from Age Friendly Saco.
The Huntington Common Charitable Fund was created in 2006 to help older adults in York County lead complete and fulfilled lives; Kennebunk Savings has served as steward for the fund since its inception.
The next grant deadline is June 30th. Nonprofit organizations with programs focusing on bettering the lives of older adults in York County can apply at www.kennebunksavings.com/about/community-promise/huntington-common-charitable-fund/.
