Penquis is participating in #GivingTuesdayNow, a global day of unity and giving. By giving to Penquis, you will be directly helping our neighbors who are struggling due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As you know, Penquis is providing many essential and valued services such as transportation to medical appointments, financial services and support for small businesses, assistance for homeowners, heating, utility and rental assistance, parent and family supports, residential care and assisted living, victim services, behavioral health supports, and help meeting the most basic needs that individuals and families are facing. Requests are reviewed daily, which provides a quick resolution for people in need. We have supported car repairs for essential workers, food and household products, blankets for those in shelters, laundry services for individuals who can’t leave their homes, and food deliveries, to share a few examples. But the need is great and we can’t do this without you!
Since Giving Tuesday falls on May 5, 2020, consider giving an amount to match the date, $5.20 or $55.20, or any amount that brings you joy. A gift in any amount will help our neighbors, and together we will provide support where it is needed most.
