Local credit union fights hunger


LEWISTON — Community Credit Union participates in the Maine Credit Union League’s Campaign for Ending Hunger.

The statewide organization has raised more than $4.8 million to help end hunger in Maine. At the end of each year, most of the money raised by each individual participating credit union is given back to that credit union to be distributed to hunger organizations in their community.

In 2013, Maine raised a record total $513,309.19 for the Ending Hunger Campaign. This year Community Credit Union delivered a donation of $320 to Trinity Jubilee’s Food Pantry on Bates Street. 

Since 1991 the center has assisted thousands of families by providing hot meals, groceries, case management, a safe haven and support in negotiating life’s challenges.
