In the Spirit of the Season...
It's the season for sharing, giving and caring, and that's just what Central Maine Credit Union employees did during the 2016 holiday season. Employees, pictured above, had fun shopping for their adopted family at Safe Voices to help make their holidays brighter. Other holiday contributions were shared by employees when their gifts to their favorite charities were matched by the Credit Union on Giving Tuesday. Central Maine Credit Union also held a 50/50 raffle to benefit Maine Credit Unions Ending Hunger Campaign in which over $600 was raised.
