Holiday Meals for Mainers

The Campaign is launching a Holiday Meals for Mainers initiative and we hope your credit union will participate! Throughout the months of November and December, the Campaign is encouraging people to donate $5 (or more) to help feed a hungry Mainer in their community during the holiday season.

To raise awareness about our Holiday Meals for Mainers fundraiser, the League will be making a targeted push to promote this initiative through earned and paid media. We hope your credit union will amplify these efforts locally in your branches and online. We have created the below assets to make it easy for you to get involved. Simply copy, paste, and customize any of the draft messages. To download the graphics, right click on the images. If you need additional assistance, please email Jen Burke at jburke@mainecul.org.

One in nine Mainers are food insecure. This means they live without reliable access to a sustainable quantity of nutritious food.

In the spirit of People Helping People, our credit union hopes to raise funds to fill the plates of those in need within our communities during the holiday season. Will you help us?

Please consider a donation to Maine Credit Unions’ Campaign for Ending Hunger and support the Holiday Meals for Mainers initiative. For only $5 you can put food on the plate of one person in need.

Together, we can make the season brighter for our neighbors!
