PEOPLE’S UNITED COMMUNITY FOUNDATION AWARDS $4,500 TO CAMP CAPELLA IN MAINE

June 24, 2016

 As part of an ongoing effort to address the educational and developmental needs of children in the communities where People’s United Bank operates, the People’s United Community Foundation, the philanthropic arm of People’s United Bank, announced today that it has awarded $4,500 to Camp CaPella in Holden.

 

Camp CaPella provides year-round, accessible recreational and educational experiences for children and adults with physical and developmental disabilities. The funding from People’s United Community Foundation will support the educational and life skills development programs for 140 disabled children who will attend the camp’s summer program.

 

The grant brings the total amount given by the Foundation to the camp to more than $34,000 since 2009.

 

“We are grateful that the People’s United Community Foundation has supported Camp CaPella for more than six years,” stated Dana Mosher, Executive Director of Camp CaPella, Inc. “The grant will help us offset specialized summer staff costs and activities.”

 

“Camp CaPella provides individuals with special needs the opportunity to experience new things and meet new friends,” stated Dan Thornton, Officer of People’s United Community Foundation, and President, People’s United Bank, Maine. “We are pleased to fund the camp’s programs and to help create lasting memories for campers and their families.”

 

Established in 2007, People’s United Community Foundation was formed to help support programs and activities that enhance the quality of life for citizens in the communities that People’s United Bank serves. People’s United Bank, founded in 1842 and serving customers from New York to Maine through a network of more than 400 branches, is the largest independent bank headquartered in New England. The Foundation places special emphasis on programs designed to promote economic self-sufficiency, education and improved conditions for low-income families and neighborhoods. The funding priorities of the Foundation include community development, youth development, and affordable housing.
