BRUNSWICK, Maine (September 22, 2016) – Atlantic Federal Credit Union‘s Topsham branch recently presented a donation of $625 to Tedford Housing, a Brunswick-based nonprofit that provides shelter, housing, and services that empower homeless adults, children and families in need. The donated funds were raised through the credit union’s Ending Hunger in Maine campaign.

Atlantic Federal Credit Union raised funds for the Maine Credit Union League’s Ending Hunger in Maine campaign internally throughout 2015. On a weekly basis, employees donated funds to dress down and support this worthy cause. From their raised funds, Atlantic donated to local charitable organizations to help better the communities that they serve.

Atlantic Federal Credit Union CEO/President Roger Sirois stated, “Not only is Atlantic focused on helping our members do better and improve their financial quality of life, but we want to help our communities do better. Atlantic is proud to support the Tedford Housing initiatives to help those in need.”

“Tedford Housing relies on the support and partnership of the business community to find lasting solutions to the challenges of homelessness,” said Craig Phillips, Tedford Housing’s executive director. “We appreciate Atlantic Federal Credit Union’s generous donation alongside some of our community partners and its efforts to address the issue of hunger locally.”
