BANGOR, Maine (WABI) -Versant Power announced they invested over $440,000 in local communities this year.
$65,000 was donated in support of COVID-19 response funds at the United Way and Good Shepherd Food Bank.
Another $60,000 supported six regional YMCAs.
$30,000 went to the Eastern and Aroostook Area Agencies on Aging, which helped provide access to food, heating assistance and socialization opportunities.
