Holiday Food Drive
Happy Thanksgiving! Join us in sharing our gratitude by donating to our Annual Holiday Food Drive. Both branches are collecting non-perishable items for our local food pantries now through Friday, 11/22. Currently, the pantries are looking for holiday dinner items such as: boxes of stuffing, canned veggies, cranberry sauce, gravy, canned meat, and more. Drop off a donation to a Casco FCU location this month and we will deliver it to the Standish & Gorham Food Pantries in time for holiday meals.
Hay for the Holidays
Help us help the Maine State Society for the Protection of Animals with a donation to their Buy-A-Bale program. This local animal refuge in Windham helps save the lives of horses and other animals in need. Just $5 buys one bale of hay and goes a long way towards making sure the MSSPA can keep their animals well-fed throughout the winter. You can make a donation the next time you stop into a Casco FCU branch from now until 12/27 or online via the MSSPA website.

Thank You, Janice!
Please join us in extending best wishes to Janice Link, who is retiring from Casco FCU on March 30th. Janice has been an esteemed member of our staff since 1991 and we don't know where our credit union would be without her. Her smile, sense of humor and compassion for others has been the foundation of our Gorham office since she was hired. Janice will be missed by everyone; staff and members alike.
Although we are sad to see her go, we are excited for Jan to start the next chapter of her life. May it be filled with grand-kids, family, friends and bowling! Team Casco would like to express our deepest gratitude to Janice for everything she has contributed to our lives, both professionally and personally. She truly is one of a kind and we are all so much better off having had this time with her.

Effective 9/15 Same-Day ACH Payments
What do same-day ACH payments mean for your account? You might have gotten used to some lag-time between the transaction, and the money clearing from your account. This will be going away - for example, if you pay your cable bill by phone in the morning, the funds could be cleared from your account before 5:00 p.m. the same day. Learn more here.
