CU Campaign to End Hunger
The County Federal Credit Union's Campaign for Ending Hunger is a true example of the credit union philosophy of "People Helping People".
Thanks to the tremendous spirit of the Maine Credit Unions, their staff, volunteers and members, the collective efforts of Maine Credit Unions raised another record setting amount of $402,240.02 in 2010! Since 1990, Maine credit unions have raised over $3.9 million for the Maine Credit Union's Campaign to End Hunger. All of this money has gone directly to Maine hunger organizations.
The County Federal Credit Union received a check in the amount of $3,706.71. These funds will be donated back to local hunger organizations.
The County Federal Credit Union continues to raise funds throughout the year for this great cause by selling various items such as candles, Wompkee movies, and air fresheners.
At our 54th Annual Meeting in May 2010, seven local food pantries were presented with an equal share of the proceeds given back to The County Federal Credit Union. The pantries represented were: GIFT, M&M Ministries, Friends Helping Friends, Sister Mary O'Donnell Shelter, Bread of Life Soup Kitchen, Caribou Ecumenical Food Pantry and St. Louis Ecumenical Food Pantry.
