Winter in Maine can be challenging, but for some families, staying warm can be very difficult due to their financial situations. To help their community, the team at Dirigo FCU stepped up last month to lend a hand. The credit union paid the Trinity Jubilee Day Shelter’s heating bill in January. The shelter provides safety and hope to those who have nowhere to turn.
That’s not all the team did to deliver some warmth during the coldest month of the year. Dirigo FCU also coordinated a winter coat and blanket drive—donating nearly 50 items to the Salvation Army Church and raising $300 for the Campaign for Ending Hunger.
“Providing an opportunity for Mainers to stay warm this winter is a part of Dirigo FCU’s dedication to making a real difference in the lives around us,” said Brianna Domini, Marketing Specialist at Dirigo FCU. “We are proud to support local shelters, and appreciate the hard work that Trinity Jubilee Center and Salvation Army do for those in our communities.”
Dirigo FCU’s January efforts are a great example of the credit union People Helping People philosophy in action.
