2015-06-01: Peanut Butter Drive!
The end of the school year usually means a break from homework, lots of sunshine, and a ton of fun. But for the over 1,700 students in Westbrook and Gorham schools who receive free or reduced meals, no school can also mean no breakfast or lunch. Help us make sure no child goes hungry this summer vacation.
From June 1st to June 19th, bring in a jar of peanut butter to any Casco FCU location to help us fill the kiddie pool! We'll need 100 jars to get the job done. One jar or ten, crunchy or smooth, any peanut butter you can donate will help our cause. All peanut butter will be donated to the Westbrook and Gorham Food Pantries. Questions? Call Kelsey at 207-839-5588 x2105 or e-mail at email@example.com.

2015-05-19: Casco FCU Receives First Place 2015 Dora Maxwell Award
We are proud to announce that on May 15th Casco FCU was the first place recipient of the 2015 Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Community Service Award. Casco FCU was recognized by the Maine Credit Union League at their Annual Convention for our Free Tax Prep Month at the Westbrook Community Center. Throughout the month of February, Casco partnered with AARP Tax-Aide and CA$H Greater Portland to provide free federal and state income tax preparation to community members. This was the second year in a row that Casco FCU has won first place for the Dora Maxwell Award; in 2014 Casco FCU also won at the state-level for our National Guard Care Package Project and then went on to win first place nationally for credit unions of our asset size. Free Tax Prep Month, along with several other community projects we coordinate throughout the year, would not be possible without the help of our members. Thank you for your support!

2015-04-13: Financial Literacy Month and MoneyIsland Day!
April is Financial Literacy Month. Celebrate with us by packing your bags and taking a trip to MoneyIsland™! It's a free, online game where kids ages 8 to 14 have fun while learning money management skills. MoneyIsland meets national standards for financial literacy, and was designed by an award-winning teacher. Kids venture to exotic locations, while tracking their progress on a real-life passport! Colorful characters introduce the lessons and interact with players along the way. Kids earn, spend, and invest as they strive to be gurus that are ready for financial success. Once players complete the MoneyIsland game, they receive an award certificate. Bring that certificate to any Casco Federal Credit Union branch to pick up the rewards!
