This is in large part due to our Members!
On Tuesday, February 12, 2019, New Dimensions FCU had the honor of attending the Maine Credit Union League Ending Hunger campaign luncheon at the Harraseeket Inn in Freeport. This special event recognizes the contributions of Maine’s credit unions made to combat hunger in the state.
We are proud and excited to announce that the 2018 Maine Credit Unions’ Campaign for Ending Hunger raised a record-setting $787,360.68 (that’s $47,333 more than last year’s total). The other exciting fact is that there was 100% participation from Maine’s credit unions again this year. Due to hard work and our fundraising efforts, NDFCU placed 22nd in total funds raised and 30th for per member contributions, which means we will receive a total of $9,202.11 to distribute to local organizations and food pantries. Yes, this means this money we raised goes back into the local community it came from.
It was incredibly moving to find out the impact that the funds had on Maine communities. School children were fed healthy meals, after-school snacks, summer meals and were given backpacks of healthy food to take home, too. The dollars and food provided to our local food pantries fed families and our senior citizens, too. THIS is the amazing result of our fundraisers. So, to all of you who showed up for our Harvest Fest, Soup Days, Bake Sales, Car Wash, and all the other events, we sincerely thank you. This honor also belongs to you, our members. We couldn’t do what we do without you!
We look forward to an eventful 2019 and we hope to continue along the fundraising path to make even more of an impact this year.
Together, we can accomplish anything!
With our sincerest gratitude,
The Directors and Staff of NDFCU
