Community Hero Spotlight: Annye Camara

Each year Nantucket Bank asks members of the community to nominate local individuals and organizations that have had major impacts on their communities. The top 12 heroes are selected by a committee and featured in the following year’s Community Hero Calendar.


June Community Hero Annye-Camara


June 2017 Community Hero

Annye Camara has a passion for taking care of people. Whether she recommends healthy food alternatives for you or puts a new book in your hands, her desire to make a positive influence in your life comes across in her many generous actions. She is president of the board for the Nantucket Book Foundation, serves on the literary committee for the Nantucket Book Festival, is a member of the board of trustees at the Nantucket Athenaeum, and is a volunteer with Catttrap Nantucket. In addition to this volunteer work, she owns and operates Annye’s WholeFoods.


Each Community Hero is awarded $1,000 toward a charity of their choice. Annya will be sending her $1,000 donation from the Blue Hills Bank Charitable Foundation to The Community Foundation’s Nantucket Fund.

Thank you, Annye, for all you for the well-being of those on the Island.
