Maine Coast Memorial Hospital receives donation from Maine auto dealer

BANGOR – Nine Maine cancer charity organizations recently received donations to their programs from Darling’s Auto Group, a dealer group with locations in Bangor, Brewer, Ellsworth, and Augusta. In a series of presentations held at Darling’s Honda Nissan Volvo in Bangor, Darling’s Auto Mall in Ellsworth, and Darling’s Augusta during the last few days of July, representatives from each organization accepted the donation on behalf of their cause.

The funds were raised during a promotion held in June at all Darling’s locations, where any customer purchasing a vehicle had the opportunity to select a Maine cancer-related charity of their choice to receive a $100 donation from Darling’s. The promotion raised over $28,100 for Maine cancer-related charities.

“Darling’s is focused on helping members of our community. We think this is a great way to support those who need it the most, and we were so happy to have the support of our customers during this promotion,” said Matt Smith, Marketing Manager for Darling’s.

The groups who received donations to their programs include a variety of organizations from around the state of Maine:

  • Aroostook Cancer Care in Presque Isle ($2,100)
  • Champion the Cure Challenge in Brewer ($10,800)
  • Sarah’s House in Holden ($2,000)
  • Harold Alfond Center for Cancer Care in Augusta ($2,800)
  • Martha B. Webber Breast Care Center in Farmington ($1,000)
  • Patrick Dempsey Cancer Center for Hope & Healing in Lewiston ($1,600)
  • Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center in Ellsworth ($2,400)
  • Cancer Support of Maine in Bucksport ($1,400)
  • Mary Dow Center for Cancer Care at Maine Coast Memorial Hospital in Ellsworth ($4,000)
