January 12, 2018 - BRUNSWICK, ME - Mechanics Savings Bank is proud to support Tedford Housing’s initiatives to find lasting solutions to the challenges of homelessness. The bank recently contributed $1,000, which will be used to directly support the programs and services at Tedford Housing.
More often than not, it’s one singular event that causes homelessness. The loss of a job; an unexpected medical bill; a large car repair. When you’re living paycheck to paycheck, these unexpected events may mean having to choose between buying food or paying rent, resulting in the loss of housing. Tedford Housing helps people overcome these challenges by working to find lasting solutions to prevent homelessness.
“Tedford is always appreciative of the support it receives from the community all year round,” said Craig Phillips, Tedford Housing Executive Director. “These funds from Mechanics Savings Bank will directly help us create pathways from homeless to home for our neighbors in need.”
“Tedford Housing provides programs that are crucial to our community,” said Rick Vail, Mechanics Savings Bank President & CEO. “We’re proud to provide financial support to ensure individuals and families have the resources they need to get into safe and affordable housing.”
