The dollars are in and the funds are counted. Which credit union raised the most in 2022 for Maine Credit Unions’ Campaign for Ending Hunger? How much did credit unions collectively raise last year to support this critical effort? Find out the answers to these questions next month by joining the League at our Ending Hunger Celebration Luncheon, taking place February 15, at 11:30 am, at the Harraseeket Inn in Freeport.
This annual event brings together credit union employees from across the state to recognize the significant contributions credit unions and their members make to combat hunger. Top credit union fundraisers are recognized and, for the first time ever, three credit unions will be recognized for recording the most volunteer hours during the 2022 calendar year.
“I’m really looking forward to being together in-person to celebrate what this Campaign has achieved over the past twelve months,” shared Jen Burke, AVP – Communications & Outreach for the Maine Credit Union League. “We started the year off with a very ambitious goal—to raise $1 million dollars—and I’m eager to share the results with our credit union family. Collectively, we have a great deal to be proud about, but we need to keep our fundraising momentum up to continue to be successful in 2023.”
To inspire luncheon attendees, Billy Shore, Founder and Executive Chair of Share Our Strength, the parent organization for the No Kid Hungry campaign, will provide remarks about his own innovative efforts to end hunger. Representatives from Good Shepherd Food Bank and Full Plates Full Potential also will be in attendance. There is no cost to attend the celebration event, but registration by February 6 is required.
