At Biddeford Savings and Mechanics Savings, giving back is at the core of everything we do. Although we give back to our communities all year long, we make a special effort to provide additional support during the holidays with our Season of Giving initiative.
2020 has been a challenging year for all of us, but we understand it has been especially challenging for nonprofit organizations that rely on in-person events to raise funds for their cause. To help alleviate some of those fundraising challenges, each of our branch locations were given $500 to donate to a deserving charity in our branch markets.
