Maine credit unions launch $100K challenge to fight hunger
"Maine Credit Unions' Campaign for Ending Hunger kicks off with a $100,000 challenge in June to raise money for Good Shepherd Food Bank, local community food pantries and meal sites across the state.
The month-long challenge runs from June 1 to 30, a spokesperson for the Maine Credit Union League told Mainebiz.
'The COVID-19 crisis has brought an acute awareness to a persistent problem that existed long before the pandemic, and as life inches closer to normal, we hope Mainers will remember that our ‘normal’ included one in five Maine kids going to bed without enough food,' said Kristen Miale, president of Good Shepherd Food Bank.
Since 1990, the Maine Credit Unions’ Campaign for Ending Hunger has raised more than $10.4 million."
