‘When a door closes, another one opens.’ This is a phrase we all know well, and usually it’s associated with feelings of optimism and opportunity. Yet, for some, a closing door does not always mean another one will open, such as with losing a home and becoming homeless. SIS Bank is therefore pleased to announce its recent donation of $5,000 to the Community Action Partnership of Strafford County (CAPSC).

CAPSC is a nonprofit organization and a leading anti-poverty agency serving the residents of Strafford County, New Hampshire. The agency provides those in need with basic necessities including emergency shelter, food, education, child care, utilities assistance, housing and transportation as well as access to other self-sufficiency services.

The donation made by SIS will go towards the funding of CAPSC’s ongoing The Open Doors Campaign—a $2 million capital campaign for the building of the nonprofit’s new Innovation Service Center in Dover, NH. This space will help to better serve the needs of children under age six as well as of senior citizens and low-income adults and families.

“Everyone deserves the right to fulfilling basic needs like shelter, hunger and education,” says SIS Bank President & CEO Blaine Boudreau. “CAPSC impacts the lives of so many people in need, and we’re proud to be able to help them extend their reach and open the doors to their services for those living in and near Dover.”
