Credit Unions Receive Recognition at Annual Ending Hunger Luncheon

Maine State CU accepts its award for finishing first in total dollars raised and third for highest per member contributions

On February 4, credit union representatives from across Maine gathered in Freeport to celebrate Maine Credit Unions’ Campaign for Ending Hunger. The Campaign announced it raised $832,332.62 in 2019 and provided funding to 303 nonprofit hunger-related organizations in the state.

While every credit union in Maine contributed financially to the Campaign in 2019, the top seven credit unions in terms of dollars raised and per member contributions were recognized at the luncheon. Maine State Credit Union was the top credit union fundraiser with over $90,000. Gardiner Federal Credit Union had the highest per member contributions at $4.03 per member.

“I am incredibly proud of our credit union network and their unwavering commitment to the Campaign for Ending Hunger,” said Todd Mason, President/CEO of the Maine Credit Union League. “Every credit union in our state contributed to this initiative. They don’t do it because they have to—they do it because they want to ensure people in their communities have access to healthy, nutritious meals.”
