Ending Hunger Yard Sale

Updated 4 years ago

You could find everything from TVs to toys outside one credit union in Hampden today.Folks at The Changing Seasons Federal Credit Union hosted a yard sale, with the proceeds going to the Campaign to End Hunger. For 20 years Maine’s credit unions have been working together in the fight against hunger. Locally, the money raised goes to places like the Bangor Homeless Shelter and the Shaw House. All of the funds raised stay in Maine.Folks at the credit unions work year round to support their cause.Darla King, a volunteer at the yard sale, says, “The credit unions do this sort of thing all the time. This is just one thing that we do. We hold raffles all year long, we sell candy bars and chips all the time, we have cook books, we have magnets, we do a lot of different things to raise money and it all does, 100 percent, to fee the hungry in the state of Maine.”Last year they raised about $800 at their yard sale, they’re hoping to do as well or better this year.
