Bank donates $6,000 to Healthy Acadia

ELLSWORTH — Machias Savings Bank has donated $6,000 to Healthy Acadia to support healthy food systems, diabetes prevention programming and cancer patient navigation in select areas of Washington County.

This gift will help ensure that all community members, regardless of income, have access to high-quality healthy food.

The goal is to enable those with prediabetes to improve their overall health and to prevent type 2 diabetes, and for those navigating a cancer diagnosis to have access to support and needed resources along their journey.
