Maine Family in the Community
Our community is Androscoggin County, Maine and we give to our community in a variety of ways. At our local Adopt-A-Schools in Lewiston and Auburn, Maine Family employees help with book fairs, math meets, Dr. Seuss Day, financial education, PTA fundraising events, and dinners and with school food can collections that fund families around the holidays. The Credit Union participates in fundraisers to help Ending Hunger annually. In 2023, all of the proceeds have gone towards providing funds to the following organizations and nonprofits in our area:
- Trinity Jubilee
- St. Martin De Porres
- New Beginnings
- Veterans Inc
- Hope Haven Gospel Mission
- Seniors Plus
Throughout the year, employees and members of Maine Family donate clothing and supplies to help The Store Next Door which helps homeless youth in Lewiston and Auburn during the holidays.
In previous years, we have organized our Annual Holiday 50/50 to help donate the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital. In the three years that we have run this, we have been able to donate $10,806 for kids in Maine! Read an incredible blog post written by the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital HERE.
Maine Family supports local events and non-profits. Maine Family staff donates weekly to support local agencies as well as give yearly scholarships to three members in the community. These scholarships used to be for $1,000 but in 2023 the amount has been raised to $2,500 each.
We support 4 local sports teams a year as well as actively support Special Olympics of Maine and their fundraising efforts and events.
Maine Family has taken part in the Kora FEZtival of Trees for the last 4 years and is proud of the amount of money we have been able to help raise to support the Kora Shrine Temple.
Maine Family gives back to the community in a variety of ways and we strive to be an active partner in the community in which we work and live.
