Christopher Hanks, credit officer at Mechanics Savings Bank, center, presents a check for $1,000 to Meg Dumais, academic liaison, left, and Mary Seaman, McKinney-Vento Homeless Education liaison, right, from The Store Next Door Project at Lewiston High School. Hanks said, “It’s important that the community understands how prevalent homelessness is and what is being done to combat the issue. Our hope is that this contribution not only helps provide essentials for students but also raises awareness of the need for community support for The Store Next Door Project.”
