MAINE CREDIT UNIONS’ ENDING HUNGER WALKING TOUR CONCLUDES NINTH SUCCESSFUL, EMOTIONAL JOURNEY

(Westbrook) - On Thursday, December 2, the Ninth Annual Maine Credit Unions’ Ending Hunger Walking Tour celebrated its conclusion with a special ceremony at Brewer FCU.  Brenda Davis, Executive Director of Cross Roads Ministries and Food Pantry, completed her month-long journey to a record-setting 72 communities by receiving a special conclusion contribution from the Maine Credit Unions’ Campaign for Ending Hunger.
 
This year’s Tour visited most communities, and covered the most miles in its history, encompassing a record of more than 1,500 miles, with approximately 700 of that on foot. The Tour visited every Maine county for the fifth consecutive year. At each of the 79 credit union branches Davis visited, she accepted a contribution from the Campaign as a way to support her cause. This year, the Maine Credit Unions’ Campaign for Ending Hunger also made a $105 donation to a food pantry in each of the 72 communities that Davis visited.  In all, The Maine Credit Unions’ Campaign for Ending Hunger contributed nearly $30,000 to help end hunger through the Tour, part of the larger initiative by credit unions to end hunger in Maine which has, to date, raised and distributed more than $3.5 million.
 
Since 1990, the Maine Credit Unions’ Campaign for Ending Hunger has raised over $3.5 million to help end hunger in Maine. This is the 21st year of the Campaign.
 
Formed in 1938, the Maine Credit Union League is the State Trade Association for Maine’s 64-member credit unions providing a variety of services and products to assist credit unions in meeting the needs of their membership.  For more information, visit www.mainecul.org.
