    Christmas In July for the Maine Children’s Home for Little Wanderers | Connected Credit Union — Connected Credit Union

    Connected Credit Union has once again partnered with The Maine Children’s Home for Little Wanderers in Waterville to collect gifts for their annual Christmas Program. Due to COVID-19, we will be collecting donations through The Maine Children’s Home for Little Wanderers’ Amazon Wish List. Please visit our website at www.connectedcreditunion.org for details to help with this very worthwhile cause. Donations will be shipped directly to their Waterville facility.

    Each year, the Christmas Program at The Maine Children’s Home distributes boxes of gifts and clothing to more than 1,700 financially disadvantaged children throughout the state. It’s the only program of its kind that provides new toys, books, games and new, warm clothing to boys and girls throughout Maine. No donation is too small and it’s never too early or too late to donate.  Their Christmas Program is a year-long effort and would not be possible without the generosity and support of our community.

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

    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.
