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 employees participate in payroll deduction to support Ending Hunger, Special Olympics, Lifeline, Meals on Wheels, the Greater Androscoggin Humane Society, as well as Adopt two local families during the Holidays. In 2019 Maine Family employees personally donated a total of $4,404.
Maine Family was able to help jump-start the Maine Family Snow Tube Park at Lost Valley which has provided a great deal of fun for families in our area along with supporting a great local business.
Throughout the year, employees of Maine Family donate to a fund to purchase new toys and coats for kids for the holidays and in partnership with the Saint Dominic Academy Pre-K class, we donate a collection of new and used coats for the WCSH annual Coats for Kids project.
During Thanksgiving the Credit Union collects non-perishable food and buys pies to help support needy families during the Thanksgiving holiday.
We also use 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.
