“Once a month Katahdin Trust employees can donate a minimum of $1 to participate in our Casual Because We Care program,” explains Krista Putnam, Vice President, Marketing. “We are very pleased to provide Autism Society of Maine with this donation. Their work helps ensure that resources and support are available to autistic individuals and their families throughout Maine. We appreciate all their efforts and are excited to do our part to help make a difference in our communities.”

Katahdin Trust employees can dress casually on the second Friday of each month in support of various non-profit organizations throughout Maine.
