The Bangor Area Homeless Shelter has recognized Camden National Bank as its “Business Supporter of the Year” for 2016 in honor of the bank’s efforts in supporting the shelter and Maine’s homeless through its Hope@Home initiative and involvement in the annual Hike for the Homeless fundraising event. The award was presented at the Bangor shelter’s annual meeting at the Fraternal Order of Eagles Club in Brewer Sept. 20.

Through the community-based, statewide Hope@Home program, Camden National Bank donates $100 for every new home it finances to a local homeless shelter in the homeowner’s name.
