AUBURN – Seventeen Northeast Bank employees, friends and family joined in the community efforts on April 20 to Rebuild L/A Together in support of two local families.

“The families involved were so appreciative of our efforts,” said Alina Burke, AVP-business development officer and team leader for the bank’s efforts.

“It’s easy to write a check, but getting out and actually helping our neighbors is so much more rewarding. We encourage our employees to get involved in their communities and produce results,” said Marcel Blais, senior vice president of Northeast Bank. “Rebuilding L/A Together couldn’t be a better fit for our company.”

The Northeast Bank teams were dispatched to 91 Harold St., Lewiston, and 42 Crest Ave., Lisbon.

The team in Lewiston consisted of employees, Rhonda Kenney, Giselle Bagushinski, Sue Chandonnet, Lena Hann, Lori Davies and her daughter, Amy, Joline Daigle and her friend, Bob Papsis, and his daughter, Tori. Work completed included a new roof and a coat of paint.
