Community Credit Union participates in the Maine Credit Union League’s initiative known as the Maine Credit Unions’ Campaign for Ending Hunger. Maine Credit Unions have raised over $8 million since 1990 to help end hunger in Maine. At the end of each year, 100% of the money raised by each individual participating credit union is given back to that credit union to be distributed to hunger organization in their community. In 2017, participating Maine Credit Unions raised a new record total of more than $740,000 for the Ending Hunger Campaign.
