Campaign to End Hunger
KSW Federal Credit Union as part of the Maine Credit Union League’s annual Campaign to End Hunger in 2019, announced a record-setting $832,332 raised. Since 1990, Maine’s credit unions have raised over $8 million dollars in an ongoing effort to end hunger in the state.
The Social Responsibility Committee at KSW FCU had numerous fundraisers throughout 2019 to benefit local food pantries. Through various raffles, 50/50 and food sales KSW raised over $2,700! This money was split between four food pantries, two in the Waterville area and two in the Belfast community.
2020 with the onslaught of Covid-19 has made traditional ways of fundraising increasingly difficult, but hunger still exists. Please consider making a donation to the campaign.
