Corporate Partner Spot Light: WEX

By November 22, 2021Blog

Community is the heart of WEX’s values. They believe that supporting those in our community who face challenges is not only the right thing to do but a priority to create social equality.  WEX thinks that for all to succeed and for communities to thrive, we must help lift up others. Their dedicated support of Spurwink highlights this commitment to our community and ensures that the most vulnerable are supported.

WEX employees have been very active in our school supply and holiday gift drives. For example, this past year WEX’s NexGen affinity group collected enough school supplies to support over 100 students, ensuring that kids in Maine have the tools they need to succeed in school.

“At WEX, community is part of our DNA and our employees are passionate about giving back to the communities where they live and work. Creating a community where all citizens are supported and are given the tools to thrive is the backbone of our philanthropic work. During these trying times, Spurwink’s services are more relevant and important than ever. Their programs offer aid and tools to those most in need across a diverse spectrum in our community.  We’re proud to partner with Spurwink to support their important work in mental and behavioral health.” —Hilary A. Rapkin, Chief Legal Officer, WEX Inc.

We are thankful for WEX’s involvement, which helps ensure access to care for those affected by behavioral health and intellectual disabilities. They are assisting Mainers to have healthy and engaging lives in our community.
