ORONO — University Credit Union is partnering with Orono restaurants to end hunger one entree at a time.
From June 22 to June 24, the credit union will donate $5 for every order at participating restaurants up to $5,000.
UCU Business Services Manager Derek Hebert said it’s also a good way to help the restaurants that have been hit hard during the pandemic.
“It’s taking the credit union, it’s taking the restaurants, it’s taking the restaurant goers and kind of working together and try to create a system on how we can give to ending hunger,” he said.
Since 2017, UCU‘s Ending Hunger in Maine campaigns have raised more than $103,000 for food banks, food pantries, meal sites and other organizations in Maine.
If you don’t feel comfortable going into a restaurant or you just can’t get there, you can still donate online at ucumaine.com/endinghunger.
