Sweetser has been awarded an Impact Award from the Red Sox Foundation.
It’s the third consecutive year the Red Sox Foundation and the Ruderman Family Foundation have teamed up to support mental health providers across New England.
“We appreciate everyone voting for our mission to bring mental health services to more Mainers,” says Kelly Thayer, Sweetser’s Development Officer. “This award is a reflection of the meaningful work our staff does each and every day to meet the increasing need we see in the communities we serve.”
Sweetser will receive a $3,000 grant for placing 2nd in the voting contest that took place during the month of May. The two other Maine recipients were The Center for Grieving Children and The Northern Lighthouse.
In total, 18 nonprofit organizations across 6 states were recognized.
Thank you all for voting every day, and sharing with your family and friends so they could vote. We appreciate your efforts toward helping us secure this win to support the critical work that we do.
