Kennebunk Savings is helping to build a bright future for Sanford with a recent $25,000 donation in support of the Sanford-Springvale YMCA’s expansion project.

“At Kennebunk Savings, we’re proud to connect with and invest in the people and organizations making a difference in our communities. That’s why we contribute to the Sanford-Springvale YMCA,” said Bradford C. Paige, Kennebunk Savings President & CEO.  “Their truly great work — whether it’s child care, an exercise class, an after-school event, or wellness activity  — makes all of our lives better, bringing us together and providing healthy options, regardless of age.”

The Y’s 22,000 square foot expansion space includes larger wellness and program spaces, new equipment, a community game room, an increased Child Watch space, and other improvements. Coming later this fall, the Y’s Owls preschool will finish construction on a larger, newly renovated preschool space.

“A gift to the Y’s expansion project is the gift of possibility,” said Andy Orazio, Sanford Springvale YMCA CEO. “For over 75 years, the Y has been proud to support our community through fitness and wellness offerings, child care, social programs, youth and teen development programs, and important socialization and wellness opportunities for local seniors. Our new, larger facility space will enable us to significantly increase our impact as we grow with our community and its needs.”
