Project Heat Telethon January 17, 2013

PH2013The Maine Bankers Association was the proud sponsor of Project Heat, a telethon conducted January 17 at the studios of WLBZ-2 in Bangor and WCSH-6 in Portland. The proceeds of the telethon benefit the Keep ME Warm Fund, a statewide home heating assistance program of the United Way that provides fuel oil to needy families across Maine. As sponsor, MBA made a contribution of $6,000 to the Keep ME Warm Fund and member banks supplied 85 volunteers to answer phone lines during the 14-hour telethon. Shown in the photo is MBA president Chris Pinkham discussing the contribution during a live broadcast of the telethon with WCSH's Cindy Williams and Jackie Ward.  “Like Us on Facebook” and see our Telethon Day photos!
