Humanitarian Highlight 5/30: Prosperity
Happy Thursday and happy #HumanitarianHighlight day! We have some incredible credit unions that we mentioned below who stood out to us. With their efforts in helping create a #CUdifference, they have all demonstrated the importance of a community bond and strength with standing alongside one another. If you know of a credit union or are part of one that has gone above and beyond in helping, please let us know by tagging #HumanitarianHighlight or simply contact us on any of our social media platforms.
They were able to raise $1,000 due to their Shred Day event!! The money will be donated to Spotsy County Public School’s Rover Bus!!
Raised an incredible amount of $2,000 for a chance to donate to Greater Androscoggin Humane Society.
“The Greater Androscoggin Humane Society (formerly known as the Lewiston-Auburn SPCA) was incorporated as a nonprofit volunteer organization on February 25th 1885. Our first President was the Honorable Nelson M. Dingley, Jr., a former Governor of Maine, U.S. Congressman and founder of our local paper, the Lewiston Daily Journal (now known as the Sun Journal).
The Society’s original mission was to protect work horses and children from abuse. Volunteers carried on this mission until 1912 when they first decided to create a “home” for stray animals. Sadly, there was not enough money to buy the land needed for the Shelter so they continued to function primarily as an advocate for animal rights and welfare, housing those animals in need at volunteer`s homes and boarding facilities.” Greater Androscoggin Humane Society
