2021 UCU Ending Hunger Campaign
November 15th - December 31st
At UCU, we believe in being here for our communities. As we embark on year five of our ending hunger campaign, we would like to thank everyone that has donated, volunteered and made an impact over the years to help our friends and neighbors. This campaign is a regular event that food pantries count on to help the fight against the food insecurity. It could be a family down the road financially impacted by the pandemic or a university student struggling to balance classes with the need to work for income. For that reason, we want to do our part along with your help to support the local food pantries around us, including those on the university campuses and in your backyard.
Our campaign began five years ago with Ending Hunger on Campus, supporting food pantries across the University of Maine System campuses. Last year, we expanded our initiatives beyond the campuses into our communities around the state, because we are Here for U.
As we begin this season of giving, we ask that you consider donating to our Ending Hunger Campaign and support our local communities. Your donation will go far and make such an impact.
For the fourth consecutive year, UCU will match up to $25,000 in donations to our Ending Hunger Campaign.
UCU has held campaigns this year to start raising funds early, and to-date we have committed more than $6,230 towards our $25,000. In addition to having the online donation portal available, this year we look forward to welcoming you into our branch lobbies for in-person donations. We are off to a good start, but there is much more needed to get us there.
