In these unprecedented times, Partners Bank — and our community at large — is more aware than ever before of the risks that doctors, nurses, paramedics, police, firefighters, veterans and other first responders take as they perform their important jobs and serve the community.

Partners Bank joins us in thanking them for their service, today and every day.

Our thoughts will stay with them in the coming weeks as they continue to make extra sacrifices to ensure our communities are safe and healthy.

Partners Bank has long been dedicated to giving back to the community, as President Blaine A. Boudreau wrote in a recent community message:

The Bank’s commitment to giving back to the community has remained one of our highest priorities. For starters, we joined hands with the Maine Banker’s Association as they rolled out their Food Insecurity Program. Partners and all other Maine Bank’s came together to raise $61,000 for food charities across the State of Maine in less than a day. We were pleased to donate $2,500 to the Waterboro Food Pantry as part of this program.

 

Our Employee Donation Program rounded out the winter strong with $500 each to the Alzheimer’s AssociationLearningWorks, and Special Olympics Maine. It is truly humbling to see the organizations that are close to the hearts of our employees each month we pick another employee to select an organization of their choice to receive this monthly gift.

For first responders and veterans, Partners Bank also offers a Heroes banking bundle, including:

  • Heroes Savings Account: Receive higher interest rates as your balances increase with no minimum balance needed to earn interest.
  • Heroes Checking: Includes free checks forever, no monthly service charge, free ATM use (Partners Bank covers ATM fees at other banks' machines) and free LifeStages identity protection services
  • Discounts to local attractions
  • Free LifeStages Identity Theft protection

Of course, Partners Bank offers several solutions for customers regardless of their profession. When was the last time you called a business and got a live person?! Partners Bank has a live person directing phone calls during business hours along with the 24/7 banking access people have come to expect.

To help customers get added value, they have bundled products and services to meet individual customer’s needs. For example, the RockIt Bundle offers a first-time homebuyer discount, personal budgeting tool, text alerts/mobile banking and more. And with Card Controls through the Partners Bank mobile banking app, customers can receive real-time transaction alerts, control spending by setting limits on withdrawals or transactions and block international or out-of-area transactions.
