Maine Credit Unions Campaign for Ending Hunger $100,000 Challenge

Credit unions across Maine are dedicated to making a difference in their communities and collectively participate in the Maine Credit Unions’ Campaign for Ending Hunger. The Campaign has raised over $11.3 million since 1990 – over $930,000 in cash and food contributions in 2021 alone – with 100% of all funds raised going to organizations in Maine fighting food insecurity.

June is National Hunger Awareness Month and our credit union wants to help feed people in need in our community. From June 1 – June 30, (insert credit union name) will be participating in the Maine Credit Unions’ Campaign for Ending Hunger $100,000 Challenge. As our state works to recover from the economic impact of COVID-19, we want to make sure individuals and families have continued access to healthy, nutritious meals.

For the past two years, the Campaign has launched a month-long $100,000 fundraising initiative in June to help Good Shepherd Food Bank, community food pantries, and schools meet the unprecedented demand for food. These efforts were enormously successful, with us meeting our $100,000 goal each year. With your help, we believe we can do it again!

Any donation amount helps. Please consider making a tax-deductible online donation. Visit https://campaignforendinghunger.org/donate.

Your support will help ensure Maine families get the food they need.
