The Aroostook Shrine Club Receives a Donation From Care & Comfort's Presque Isle Jean Fund
Posted by Care & Comfort on 02/06/2018.
Care & Comfort and members of our Presque Isle Branch presented a gift from our Jeans Fund to The Aroostook Shrine Club, a local chapter of Shriners that are part of the Anah Temple Shrine, in support of the specialized care children receive at their two New England Hospitals.
Shriners Hospital for Children-Springfield is devoted to delivering the highest quality of care to children with orthopedic and neuromusculoskeletal disorders and diseases, as well as cleft lip and palate. Shriners Hospitals for Children - Boston is one of the world’s leading centers for pediatric burn care and the treatment of skin conditions. Both hospitals provide treatment without regard to the family’s ability to pay.
Accepting the check on behalf of the Shrine was President Blair McCartney, who thanked Care & Comfort and our employees for the donation and provided an informative summary of the Shriners Hospitals, their mission and how patients can receive needed care.
“As one of Maine’s leading home and behavioral health agencies serving individuals and families throughout the State, we frequently meet children who need specialized medical care. We are so fortunate that because of all the Anah Shriners do, our neighbors in Aroostook County have access to the Children''s Hospitals for the services they need without added financial burdens," remarked Care & Comfort''s COO Mike Stair. "I can think of no better organization to share our Jean Fund with, and I thank our staff for once again choosing to help the youngest in our community."
