Second place finish earns Community Care much needed funds

BANGOR - Two weeks ago we told you about Community Care in Bangor competing in Toyota's 100 Cars for Good campaign. For one day only, the local nonprofit was vying against five other out-of-state nonprofits for a free set of wheels from the car dealer. Although Community Care didn't win the contest, it did place a respectable second.

"I'm surprised at how close it was," said Kate Davis, executive director of Community Care. "There was a 3 percent difference between first and second place. We don't know what that means in terms of votes, but when we found the winning agency was just outside of Orlando, I was really pleased with the Bangor market. I think it went well for us."

BANGOR - A Bangor nonprofit is among 500 finalists competing for a free vehicle from Toyota this summer. Community Care, an agency that provides support and care for children, families and adults suffering from mental illness, trauma and/or poverty, will be among five different agencies in the running for Toyota's 100 Cars for Good campaign on Thursday, Aug. 9. It's a contest where Toyota agrees to give away 100 cars to 100 different nonprofits over 100 days.

"We provide treatment foster care, case management and in home clinical treatments for the whole family. A lot of our clients live in the most rural part of Piscataquis, Penobscot and Aroostook County and don't have transportation so we go to them," explained Kate Davis, executive director for Community Care.
