BHBT DONATES $11,378 THROUGH ‘COMMUNITY COMMITMENT’ PROGRAM IN 2014

February 9, 2015

 Bar Harbor Bank & Trust in partnership with its employees and directors donated $11,378 through the Bank’s Community Commitment program during 2014.  The non-profit organizations receiving these funds included:  Hope Elephants, Acadia Wildlife Foundation, Island Community Center, Birds Acre/ Stanwood Wildlife, Family Crisis Services, Tedford Housing, Mt. Desert Nursing Association, Helen’s Restaurant Employee Fund, China Village Library, SPCA of Hancock County, Lamb House Project, Bread of Life Ministries, and Island Connections.

 Each week, Bar Harbor Bank & Trust directors and employees, in exchange for being able to dress casually on Fridays, voluntarily contribute to a charitable fund that disburses gifts monthly to local charitable organizations.  This employee-driven donation program is called Community Commitment.  The Bank matches the employee donations, doubling the amount given to the chosen organization.  Each month the employees at a different bank location get to choose the recipient of these contributions. 

 Bar Harbor Bank & Trust is a true community bank with more than $1.4 billion in assets.  Founded in 1887, the Bank offers a full range of financial services for families, businesses, and non-profit organizations throughout Maine with 15 branch locations, from Topsham to Lubec. Bar Harbor Bank & Trust, Member FDIC, is a subsidiary of Bar Harbor Bankshares (NYSE MKT:BHB) and was named one of the 2014 Best Places to Work in Maine and one of the 2014 Top 200 Community Banks in the nation by American Banker magazine.
