WESTBROOK, Maine (5/6/08)--The Maine Credit Union League, with the Aroostook Chapter of Credit Unions and the National Credit Union Foundation, has launched a website to collect contributions for credit unions affected by flooding in Aroostook County, Maine. The northern portions of the county recently experienced significant flooding that resulted in millions of dollars in damage. The flooding forced many to evacuate the area, according to the league. Applications for assistance will be distributed in Aroostook County. Many credit union members have suffered significant losses and will be in need of immediate financial assistance, the league said. “The credit union movement has a strong history of responding in times of crisis, and we are hopeful that credit unions will again answer the call to help,” said John Murphy, league president.
