If you weren't already aware, May is Mental Health Awareness Month. And in an effort to help support the cause, Hannaford Supermarkets has made an incredibly generous donation of $75,000 to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, Maine Chapter.

According to Greg Marley of NAMI Maine,

“As we come to the end of this very long pandemic year, I think we’re going on 14 months plus, I think people are tired, and one thing that has suffered a lot is peoples’ mental health. Anxiety and depression are way up as is substance use and eating disorders. People are struggling. We need to build hope, and we need to build help. That’s what NAMI Maine will be using this foundational money for.”

Hannaford is no stranger to giving back to worthy causes. Just a couple months ago we did a similar story about Hannaford's involvement with the Good Shepard Food Bank. It's great to know that when we're out doing our normal grocery shopping that we're helping to support a business that is working hard to give back to the same communities we live and shop in.
