Saco & Biddeford Savings Institution Supports SMHC’s Breast Cancer Survivors

Saco & Biddeford Savings Institution (SBSI) recently donated $932.70 to support breast cancer survivors at Southern Maine Health Care’s (SMHC) Center for Breast Care. The donation came from various fundraisers the bank held during Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October and matching funds from SBSI. The fundraisers included employee jeans days and selling pink ribbons which customers could write their name on and display in the lobby within one of their six branches throughout York and Cumberland counties.   

“SMHC is very grateful for the continued support of Saco & Biddeford Savings Institution to our organization,” stated SMHC President & CEO Ed McGeachey. “This donation to support our breast cancer survivors is just one more example of the bank’s contributions to SMHC as a valued community partner. Gifts such as these allow SMHC to provide the support, education and amenities that our patients need in order to receive their care close to home.”

Saco & Biddeford Savings Institution will also be donating funds raised at the Cumberland county branches to Maine Medical Center’s breast cancer survivor programs.
