Spectrum Generations, Central Maine’s Area Agency on Aging and Disability Resource Center serving residents in Kennebec, Knox, Lincoln, Somerset, Waldo counties, part of Sagadahoc county and the towns of Brunswick and Harpswell (Cumberland County), has hired Lindsay MacDonald, of Richmond, to join the team as Community Engagement Director. Formerly, MacDonald served as executive director for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Bath/Brunswick for 11 years, and as their executive development assistant for four years prior to that.
“It is an honor to join Spectrum Generations in this capacity,” said MacDonald, in a Spectrum news release. “From delivering meals and tackling food security for some of Maine’s most vulnerable citizens to offering classes and connecting people to resources, Spectrum Generations does so much to meet its mission of helping Mainers age with dignity within communities of their choice. I look forward to helping this organization build capacity through fundraising and grant writing to reach even more aging Mainers and adults with disabilities during these uncertain times.”
The mission of Spectrum Generations is to promote and advance the well-being and independence of older and disabled adults, with the support of their care partners, to live in their community of choice. As Community Engagement Director, Lindsay will manage Spectrum Generation’s public education and advocacy efforts, marketing, strategic communications and fund development which includes four fundraising events, corporate relationships and individual donors.
“The Community Engagement Director has to have the ability to effectively manage a team of professionals while wearing many different hats,” said Gerard Queally, president and CEO of Spectrum Generations. “Lindsay’s long history with Big Brothers Big Sisters allowed her to gain many important skills and connections, and I am confident that she will be able to use those skills to help Spectrum Generations serve our constituency well in central Maine. In order to carry out our mission, Spectrum Generations relies on a large network of staff, volunteers and community members. We’re a hardworking dedicated team, and we’re excited to have Lindsay join us. Please join us in welcoming her.”
MacDonald will work from the Home Office in Augusta office on Weston Court. If you have any questions about Spectrum Generations, or the services they provide, or if you’d like to volunteer, please visit spectrumgenerations.org or call 207-622-9212.
