“Each year, we like to challenge our credit union friends across the state to share an hour, a day or a weekend to volunteer for a Special Olympics event. Opportunities to volunteer are endless; from preparing and serving meals and snacks to coaching or coordinating athletic events. Regardless of the level of interest and measure of time you have to contribute, you will be welcomed and appreciated. The experience will give back more smiles, hugs, and laughter than time and money could ever buy.  

A mountain of gratitude goes to Insurance Trust, vendor partners, Credit Union colleagues, and their loyal members for their overwhelming financial contributions and dedication to helping at the Special Olympics events throughout the state.” -Cathy Bond, Chairperson, Winslow Community FCU.

Insurance Trust, Credit Union partners, and vendor partners succeeded in surpassing the 2014-2015 fundraising goal. When last year’s check for $73,500 was presented to Special Olympics Maine, the 20 year total of funds donated to Special Olympics Maine exceeded over $1,000,000!
