Donations and gifts

Employees dress for hurricane relief

BAR HARBOR — Employees of Bar Harbor Bankshares in Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire each gave $5 to dress casually on Oct. 2, and the bank matched those donations, for a total contribution of $5,578 to American Red Cross efforts to support those impacted by the recent hurricanes.

“While we are a true community bank and appreciate the people and places we call home, we also recognize the current needs of our neighbors and friends in communities across the globe affected by the recent hurricanes. Families and businesses in the southern parts of the U.S. and Caribbean are in great need of resources and tools to rebuild,” said Curtis Simard, president and CEO of Bar Harbor Bankshares. “I am pleased to have provided this opportunity for our employees to express their care and concern. Together we are able to make difference for those facing difficulty.”
