Bangor Savings Bank has kicked off its annual Community Matters More charitable giving program, and plans to distribute $100,000 to 68 local nonprofits throughout Maine.

Maine residents can nominate groups they think should receive the largest grants. Residents can vote through March 7 on the website www.bangor.com/cmm.

Already, some 30,000 votes have been cast, said Carol Colson, Bangor Savings’ senior vice president and director of community relations.
