Kim Turner, OTIS Federal Credit Union president/CEO, right, presents a $117 check to longtime advocate Brenda Davis on behalf of the Maine Credit Unions’ Campaign for Ending Hunger. Davis is the executive director of BBC Opportunity Center, a food insecurity organization serving eastern and central Maine. OTIS FCU was one of 96 credit unions in 90 different communities throughout all of Maine’s 16 counties which Davis will visit on her 17th Annual Maine Credit Unions’ Ending Hunger Walking and Awareness Tour. To mark the start of her tour this year, Maine Credit Unions sent Davis off with a special donation to the BBC Opportunity Center for $16,332, or $117 for every credit union that Davis will visit along her journey. The tour kicked off  Oct. 26 at Maine State Credit Union in Augusta, and will conclude with a ceremony at Changing Seasons Federal Credit Union in Hampden on Nov. 27.
