IN THE PHOTO, John Shoos, left, senior vice president of the United Way of Greater Portland, is shown with John Murphy, president/CEO of the Maine Credit Union League. Murphy presented a check for $30,000 on behalf of Maine’s credit unions to the “Keep ME Warm” program, which serves the entire state. The “Keep ME Warm” program is a collaboration of the 10 United Way organizations in Maine and 10 Community Action Programs. The contribution will purchase nearly 9,000 gallons of heating fuel for families across Maine. Murphy said the contribution came at the suggestion of credit unions wanting to do something as a group. “The contribution came together in less than 72 hours with credit unions readily pledging funds to help,” Murphy said.
