Please join us for a special ceremony and lunch at the Hilton Garden Inn Freeport Downtown to celebrate our shared Maine Credit Unions’ Campaign for Ending Hunger. The Campaign’s overall fundraising results for 2023 will be announced and the top credit union fundraisers will be recognized.

This year’s special event will feature two guest speakers from The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital: Dr. Amy Buczkowski and Dr. Jennifer Jewell. They will highlight the efforts the hospital is making to assist food insecure patients and their families while in their care. With the backing of sixteen credit unions, the League, and Synergent, the Campaign provided the hospital with a $14,000 donation earlier this year to support their important outreach work to combat hunger.
