Lisbon Credit Union Raises $4,400 for the Ending Hunger Campaign!

2013 has been another great and successful fundraising year for the Lisbon Credit Union! Our staff did an outstanding job with planning and participating in all fundraising events. We couldn’t have asked for a more dedicated team! Our fundraisers consisted of employee dress down days, candy bar sales, two bake sales, a grill raffle, a car wash, and a TV raffle. With these efforts, we have raised $4,400, all of which will benefit local food pantries.

Hunger is still a prominent problem here in Maine. That’s why our beneficiaries this year are the Lisbon Area Christian Outreach food pantry (LACO) and St. Mary’s food pantry. In addition, the Credit Union chose a third recipient for the first quarter of 2013. Lisbon High School received a $1,000 donation to purchase camera equipment for school events, and motivational posters to be placed inside the school.

After a productive Social Responsibility Committee meeting, 2014 is looking to be a promising fundraising year, with fresh ideas and bigger goals!
