York County Community Action Corporation Receives $500 from SIS Bank Employee Donation Program

SIS Bank is changing its name to Partners Bank effective July 1, 2019.

SIS Bank/Partners Bank Teller Charlene Conant (right) of the Springvale Branch, was selected as the most recent recipient of the Bank’s Employee Donation Program. She chose York County Community Action Corporation to receive the donation. She is pictured here with Bank President & CEO Blaine Boudreau.

As humans, we recognize how emotionally rewarding it can be to help other people, especially when they are struggling. That feeling is magnified when it’s your job to promote the welfare of others, and when you can be a part of an organization with the mission to help those in need.

SIS Bank is therefore pleased to announce its most recent donation as part of its monthly Employee Donation Program. Charlene Conant is the 38th employee to have the honor of naming an organization and chose the York County Community Action Corporation (YCCAC) to receive this month’s $500 gift from the Bank.

The mission of YCCAC is to alleviate the effects of poverty and promote the self-sufficiency of the people of York County, Maine. A unique organization, YCCAC manages a range of resources; from primary health and dental care to income support and economic opportunity, transportation to housing and heating, and early childhood education. YCCAC also partners with other organizations as needed to fully support the needs of its clients and patients.

Conant, a Teller at SIS’ Springvale branch, chose YCCAC because the organization had once provided fuel and food assistance to a close family member. Conant witnessed how this community organization changed this person’s life for the better and wanted to pay the organization back for its efforts.

“It’s organizations like YCCAC that ensure the success of our communities. When every individual, no matter his or her status or wealth, has an opportunity to thrive, the community becomes strong and vibrant together,” says SIS Bank President & CEO Blaine Boudreau. “Thank you, Charlene, for so thoughtfully choosing this organization.”
