Connected Credit Union announces a new partnership with Winslow Community Federal Credit Union

(Augusta, MEConnected Credit Union announces a new partnership with Winslow Community Federal Credit Union.

Connected Credit Union and Winslow Community Federal Credit Union are two financially strong not-for-profit cooperatives that have combined resources to become one financial institution, serving Kennebec, Somerset, Lincoln and Waldo, Counties. 

Richard Lachance, CEO of Connected Credit Union said “The name Connected Credit Union will remain, as we feel it is a perfect fit for our combined memberships.  We think of this partnership as a reflection of the larger community we will serve and of connecting the entire membership through technology and personal relationships to foster financial success.”

“What makes this so exciting is that both institutions share a common culture and provide like services.  We are building financial security for the members we serve and this bright, new partnership will provide great opportunity” said Cathy Bond, President of Winslow Community Federal Credit Union 

While this is considered a merger from a regulatory standpoint, all parties involved view this as a coming together of like institutions and a “win, win” for all.  This partnership positions us for continued growth and sustainability while meeting the needs of our members.  All existing branch locations will remain open, providing full-service to members.

Connected Credit Union was originally chartered in 1967 while Winslow was charted in 1958.  Both credit unions have a long-standing tradition in their communities, having served their respective memberships since 1967 and 1958.  Connected Credit Union will now have more than 8400 members with assets of $100MM.

Ending Hunger $100,000 Challenge

Ending Hunger $100,000 Challenge

As you may know, Winslow Community FCU participates in Maine Credit Unions’ Campaign for Ending Hunger, a hunger relief initiative that helps ensure Mainers in our community and across Maine have access to healthy, nutritious meals. The Campaign raises hundreds of thousands of dollars each year, a portion of which comes through the generous support of our credit union employees, volunteers, and members.

Throughout the year, our credit union and other credit unions throughout the state hold fundraisers for the Campaign. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, many planned fundraising events have been canceled. But that’s not stopping our effort to raise money! With 138,000 Mainers filing jobless claims since the start of the pandemic, our communities need our help more than ever before. Families who were food secure—even a few months ago—are now struggling to put food on the table.

So, here’s what we are planning to do and how you can help us.

Maine Credit Unions’ Campaign for Ending Hunger $100,000 Challenge

The Campaign is launching a $100,000 challenge that will run June 4 – July 4! Over the next 30 days, every dollar raised by the Campaign will support Good Shepherd Food Bank and local community food pantries and meal sites. These organizations are facing an unprecedented demand for food while food donations are at an all-time low. They need our support.

The Campaign has already received its first Challenge pledge of $100,000 to kick-start this fundraising effort—money the Campaign will direct to Good Shepherd Food Bank’s COVID-19 response. 

We Challenge You

Between now and July 4, please consider making a tax-deductible online donation to the Campaign, and select our credit union on the Donor page. Individual contributors will be listed on the Campaign’s website (with permission), and businesses contributing more than $250 can have their logos featured on the Contributor’s page. Every dollar counts!

We encourage you to open your hearts to this important effort and challenge others to do the same. Your support will help ensure Maine families get the food they need during the COVID-19 crisis and beyond.

Maine Credit Unions Campaign for Ending Hunger $100,000 Challenge

Maine Credit Unions Campaign for Ending Hunger $100,000 Challenge

Over the next 30 days, every dollar raised by the Campaign will support Good Shepherd Food Bank and local community food pantries and meal sites.

If you are able, any donation amount helps. Between now and July 4, please consider making a tax-deductible online donation to the campaign at https://campaignforendinghunger.org/donate/.

The Barber Parlor Moved to A New Location!

To our faithful and local clients,

We moved!!! Now at 142 College Ave in front of R&B Electronics and next door to Grub.

Today we have spent the day talking to fellow shop owners, medical professional friends, and family. We have brainstormed, calculated and given this a lot of thought. Our list for appointments at this time is overwhelming, thank you.

At this time we feel that it is in the best interest of you, and us to hold of from opening for a bit longer. There has been a checklist given to us from the governor, and it is quite extensive. We need time to gather the face masks (cloth will not be sufficient) face shields, smocks, capes just to name a few items. We want to be able to reopen The Barber Parlor for good, and as safely as we can for the entire community. As of now our plan is to wait until May 15, to watch the numbers of virus cases carefully and make sure that everyone feels comfortable. We will not be taking any walkins, you will need to schedule your appointment. We are working on an online appointment booking system and payment system as well. This has been an unexpected situation for everyone, and we definitely are making things up as we go. It is nice to know that we have guidance on how to do so safely, when it is our time to open. We will be in touch with all of you that have reached out to us very soon. Please stay healthy and well and we can’t wait to see your at home haircuts!

New Dimensions FCU Donates Over $11K During The COVID-19 Pandemic!

New Dimensions FCU Donates Over $11K During The COVID-19 Pandemic!

Local food banks and food pantries able to stock their shelves. 

When faced with unprecedented times, we all want to know that there is help available in times of need. Unfortunately, the resources we have are limited and it is the responsibility of the community to ensure underserved people are able to utilize them when needed. Food banks and food pantries are there to assist every person possible, but they need our help to be successful. Everyone has experienced a time when they were unsure how to find the necessary resources to meet their most basic needs, so we need to work together to take care of those who need our help the most.

Because New Dimensions FCU cares about its community and wanted to do something to help, they have donated over $11,000 to seven local food banks and food pantries. Ryan Poulin, CEO, states, “We all must play a role in keeping our community healthy and safe, so we quickly rallied to donate the funds to the quickly dwindling food banks and food pantries that needed it most. Everyone needs to eat, and we are doing our best to help as many people as possible, get through this pandemic.

New Dimensions FCU wants you to remain healthy! With you, your family, and many communities in mind, we have found ourselves in a time of uncertainty, but know that together we will come out of this stronger, more united, and able to walk into the future with a solid understanding of what it takes to work together.

If you have any questions or need financial assistance, contact New Dimensions FCU at (800) 326-6190. Stay Healthy!

“Waterville’s got Talent”

Oak Grove Center and Good Life Entertainment are pleased to Sponsor “Waterville’s got Talent” to be held on April 11th, 2020 at the Waterville Elks Club located at 76 Commercial Dr. in Waterville. We are looking for singing Talent and audience members.
This fundraiser is dedicated to replacing some of the discretionary spending which has recently been reduced to fund State-Mandated pay raises (which is a good thing right?) activities that have been adversely affected include things like day trips to area attractions, civic and cultural events and other activities for our Senior Citizens. Good life Entertainment and other civic minded companies and individuals are endeavoring to provide a bit of a cushion to the Resident Council to restore *some* of the activities that the Seniors are no longer able to enjoy due to lack of funding. It speaks directly to their quality of life! Seniors are one of our most valuable resources and I would be willing to bet that many of the most useful things that you have learned in your life; were in part, thanks to a Senior. I think that we owe it to them. Don’t you?
With that said; we humbly ask for your generous donation of any amount (donations of services, certificates and/or raffle items gladly accepted) as you are guided by your heart to give.

Please make your check payable to:
Oak Grove Resident Council
27 Cool Street.
Waterville, Maine 04901

Please let us know if you would like to have your generous donation acknowledged at the “Waterville’s got Talent” fundraiser for Oak Grove Seniors on April 11th, 2020 at the Waterville Elks, this event will feature local singing talent as well as offering various raffles and a 50/50 draw during intermissions.

Become a volunteer for Family Violence Project!

Become a volunteer for Family Violence Project!

Are you a good listener? Are you comfortable talking on the phone?
Do you have a passion for helping others?

If you answered yes to these questions, we have an opportunity that may be perfect for you!

Family Violence Project has an ongoing need for volunteer advocates to help answer our 24-Hour Helpline for those affected by domestic violence. As a volunteer advocate on the helpline, you will make a difference in people’s lives by volunteering once a month from the comfort of your home. Do you worry that you won’t know what to say? Family Violence Project offers a free training that prepares you for this volunteer role; also, a staff person will always be available to assist you by phone while you are volunteering. Participants in the training will learn about the complex issue of domestic violence, the staff and services of Family Violence Project, and how to talk with callers and help them create safety plans. Although successful completion of this training is required for this volunteer role, no other experience is necessary.

Family Violence Project’s next volunteer training will be held in Augusta starting on Saturday, April 4th during the day from 8:30am to 3:30pm and then every Tuesday and Thursday from then until May 19th at 5:30pm to 8:30pm. 

Attendance at all listed training dates is required for successful completion of the training. If you are interested in participating in this volunteer opportunity, you must be 18 years of age or older, complete a volunteer interview and pass background / reference checks prior to being accepted. Volunteer interviews must be completed by 4:30pm on Tuesday, March 31st. While the training itself is free of charge, we ask for a $25 donation from those who are financially able to provide it to help cover the cost of background checks.  The inability to donate will not prevent a person from participating in this opportunity!
