People Plus Awarded Public Service Division Award from United Way

People Plus was awarded the 2020 United Way of Mid Coast Maine’s Campaign Public Service Division Award at their 2020 Finale Meeting. Stacy Frizzle-Edgerton, People Plus Executive Director, accepted the award at the meeting via Zoom, in front of 30 People Plus members having a monthly lunch outside in the Center parking lot!

Chris Szalay, United Way Campaign Cabinet member, said “Working with a similar population, I can tell you that People Plus really rocked it this year! They helped people shop, pick up prescriptions, brought them masks, and did check-in calls. As anyone who has met Stacey knows, she is a one-woman walking fundraising rally! She inspires her staff to be 100% on board with United Way and with whatever they are doing, whether it’s finding a way to hold exercise classes in the parking lot, to weekly videos, to revamping their stellar event - the Senior Expo, to go entirely virtual and getting sponsors to keep agency information live for the next year. Thank you, People Plus, for your contributions to our community and to our UW campaign!”

“Stacy Frizzle and her team did a wonderful job adapting to the pandemic, changing their processes and programs so that they could reach their members virtually. They have had 100% participation in their campaign for many years, and Stacy has previously served on our campaign cabinet for several years. Thank you People Plus for all you do for the community and Congratulations, “ said Ryan Berard, 2020 United Way Mid Coast Maine Loaned Executive.
