LEWISTON – Donna Steckino, president/CEO, and Jan Aliberti, branch manager, Community Credit Union, presented a $1,000 gift to Androscoggin Home Care and Hospice for the new hospice house.

Steckino said, “Community Credit Union is very proud to contribute to such a worthy community project.”

Construction on the 14-patient suite hospice house on Stetson Road in Auburn is well under way and the opening is scheduled for fall.

The facility is specially designed to care for the needs of patients in the final weeks of life when hospice care at home is no longer possible.

To date, the Journey of Hope Campaign for the hospice house has received support from more than 1,390 individuals, foundations, businesses and civic and fraternal groups.

“We would like to thank Community Credit Union for their commitment to this project. We are honored they recognized the hospice house as a community resource that will benefit many people throughout the area,” stated Kim Wettlaufer, capital campaign chairman.
