Camden, Maine, September 27, 2018 – This month, Camden National Bank employees presented a special $2,500 donation to Good Shepherd Food Bank at a public event hosted by the Camden Public Library. The gift came from the Bank’s unique employee fundraising initiative called Community Spirit of Giving (CSOG).
“We’re very grateful for the vital work Good Shepherd Food Bank is doing across Maine,” said Jared Merritt, Senior Vice President, Treasurer of Camden National Bank and Co-Chair for Community Spirit of Giving. “Thank you so much to the Camden Public Library for hosting this important discussion on food insecurity in our community.”
CSOG is one of Camden National Bank’s many philanthropic commitments, and it is entirely employee-run. Fundraising happens through various events and activities throughout the year, and all donations support food pantries, schools and community leaders across the state who work to prevent food insecurity and hunger in Maine.
“Good Shepherd Food Bank is so pleased to have the support of Camden National Bank,” said President Kristen Miale. “We rely on philanthropic support to provide more than 24 million meals each year to the nearly 15 percent of Mainers struggling with food insecurity. This gift truly makes a difference.”
