Hannaford & Spurwink: Working Together to Make Maine a Healthier Place to Live and Work

By July 9, 2018Blog

Spurwink is proud to recognize Hannaford Supermarkets as a renewed 2018-2019 Corporate Partner and acknowledge its tremendous support of our clients. Like Spurwink, Hannaford is committed to sustaining healthy communities throughout the entire state of Maine. Hannaford’s philanthropy focuses on providing safe, stable access to healthy food; delivering programs to prepare people at all stages of life for success in education and readiness to enter the workforce; and championing quality programs focusing on promoting healthy lifestyles and improved care.

Michael Norton, Director, External Communication and Community Relations, shares, “[w]e are glad to continue supporting Spurwink’s programs and services. We are fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Spurwink pre-vocational students and there are several Spurwink adult clients who are Hannaford employees in various locations statewide.  Hannaford is pleased to have the chance to champion Spurwink’s goals of making Maine a healthier place to live and work.”

Spurwink is also grateful to have Hannaford employee Melanie Gilligan, Consumer Insights Manager, as a member of our Development Committee. Melanie had an early introduction to Spurwink, as her mother and father were Spurwink house parents in the 1970s.
