Androscoggin Bank recently presented a $50,000 contribution to the Trinity Jubilee Center, a Lewiston-based non-profit organization that offers food, clothing, groceries, job assistance, medical care, and a day shelter out of the basement of a local church. This gift will aid Trinity in the expansion of their new facility right here in Lewiston. “By contributing $50,000 to the Trinity Jubilee Center, we are not just supporting a great organization; we are investing in our community’s growth and well-being. This gift reflects our commitment to creating a stronger and more empowered Lewiston.” – Neil Kiely, CEO of Androscoggin Bank.
This year, Trinity Jubilee Center launched their plan to build a new facility that would help expand both current and new services to those in need. The improved facility features an expanded floor plan, a dedicated doctor’s office and waiting room, small office spaces, a shower, washer, and dryer among other resources. Additionally, the new facility requires a capital campaign to raise approximately $2 million, some with matching local and federal grants.
The Bank believes that non-profit organizations play a crucial role in identifying innovative solutions to the complex challenges faced by the community. The solutions to these challenges should be community-driven and rooted in trust. While Androscoggin Bank is honored to have Trinity Jubilee Center as one of our seven Empowerment Partners, it became clear there was a more significant way the Bank could support their efforts.
This past week, CEO Neil Kiely, Nicole Mailhot and Steven English visited Trinity’s space to physically show their appreciation of the work they are doing, see the current space and present a check for $12,500, the first installment of the four-year gift.
Androscoggin Bank is deeply thankful for all that Trinity Jubilee Center does to strengthen the community and is committed to supporting their mission to create a more equitable and inclusive community.
