Donations to be made to Camp Sunshine in 2016
Scarborough, ME | April 5, 2016 | Bangor Daily News – – Northeast Technical Institute, a career school with campuses in Scarborough, Bangor and Lewiston, once again lives up to its commitment to support those less fortunate in Maine. Effective April 15th and continuing through the year, NTI will contribute half of all application fees to Camp Sunshine. The students and staff at NTI take their civic responsibility seriously and hold regular events to highlight and support others.
Camp Sunshine is located on Sebago Lake in Casco. They inspire hope in families from all over Maine affected by life-threatening childhood illness through their unique, supportive programs and are the only full time facility in the nation whose sole purpose is to provide respite for the entire family. Their programs are all offered free of charge to the families. They remain grateful to their donors and are committed to showing the utmost respect for every dollar contributed by ensuring the greatest possible impact on children and their families.
This ongoing contribution follows a recent generous contribution to Trinity Jubilee Center in Lewiston. Each year, Trinity helps thousands of hungry people by providing not only hot meals and healthy groceries, but assists their clients in addressing the reasons they are hungry and helping people find jobs, housing and to negotiate the challenges in their lives.
NTI’s staff, students and alumni are committed to helping those in need and supporting our local community.
NTI also sponsored and donated to the WCYY Mark-A-Thon to benefit the Center for Grieving Children Telethon. NTI has participated in the Mark-A-Thon since 2012 in support of the Center for Grieving Children and this year NTI donated $1000.00. The Center, based in Portland, Maine, serves more than 4,000 grieving children, teens, families, and young adults annually through peer support, outreach, and education.
