Verrill Awards Grant during Pandemic to Support Public Health in State of Maine
Acknowledging that now more than ever Maine communities need support to ensure public health and the safety of residents, Verrill, through the charitable fund it established at the Maine Community Foundation, has awarded a $5,000 leadership grant to the Greater Portland COVID-19 Community Fund.
The Greater Portland COVID-19 Community Fund is an emergency fund sponsored by the United Way of Greater Portland to support the region’s most vulnerable neighbors affected by the pandemic. More information about the Community Fund and how others can contribute can be found on the United Way website at https://unitedtoact.org/unitedwaygp/greater-portland-covid-19-community-relief-fund.
“The current crisis has brought an array of challenges for all. It is crucial that we support each other, and especially our vulnerable neighbors,” explained K.C. Jones, Managing Partner at Verrill. “I am proud not only to be surrounded by colleagues who have gone above and beyond collectively and individually to help the members of our community, but also to be one of many local businesses giving back through initiatives like The Greater Portland COVID-19 Community Fund. Together, we can make a difference.”
Verrill established its charitable fund at the Maine Community Foundation in 1999 with the mission to support public health projects in the State of Maine.
