Maine lawyer gifts $50K to mental health facility
Question of the Day
BRUNSWICK, Maine (AP) - A high-profile Maine criminal defense attorney has donated $50,000 to a Brunswick mental health facility to keep it open for another year.
Daniel Lilley and his wife, Annette, announced the gift to Sweetser’s Learning and Recovery Center on Monday. The donation was made in the name of their son, David, who died in a car accident at age 18.
The center helps people with mental illness and developmental disorders. It was scheduled to close June 30 because Sweetser wanted more money from the Maine Department of Health and Human Services to stay open, but the state kept funding level.
Lilley said in a statement that thousands of people depend on the center to “get through life.”
A Sweetser official called the gift an “incredible gesture.”
