Androscoggin Bank Receives Award from Lewiston's Tree Street Youth, Celebrates 149 Years of Community Commitment

4/29/19 (Lewiston, Maine) - Last week, Tree Street Youth awarded Androscoggin Bank the 'Heartwood Award' for service and support of the organization over the last several years. According to Tree Street Youth, the heartwood section of the tree was chosen as it represents the tree's "core," the section that provides support for the tree as it grows and becomes firmly rooted.

Bank President Neil J. Kiely accepted the award on April 24 on behalf of the Bank. "Tree Street Youth is an incredibly dynamic mission-driven, values-based organization that is having an outsized impact on students in our community. As a similarly mission driven, values based organization, it is a privilege for us to support them in doing such valuable work," Kiely said.

In 2018, the Bank supported the youth center in a number of ways, including donations and sponsorships totaling $36,000 with a substantial contribution to help them launch their alternative high school learning pilot program. Tree Street Youth is a full-service youth center that serves 750 Lewiston-Auburn youth, ages 4-25, in one of the most economically challenged neighborhoods in Maine. Operating primarily during the vulnerable after-school hours, Tree Street supports youth by providing a safe space that encourages healthy physical, social, emotional, and academic development while building unity across lines of difference.
