Following a year that has caused great financial turmoil for thousands of Mainers, KSW Federal Credit Union is partnering with the Maine Children's Home for Little Wanderers this winter to make sure it is a bright Christmas season for every boy and girl here in our state.

It's a partnership that couldn't have come at a better time and will have such a positive impact on our community. If you're looking to help out and want to contribute to a wonderful local cause, there are a few different ways for you to do just that.

Through the holiday season, you can use either Amazon wishlist link to help purchase items that are desperately needed by the Maine Children's Home (multiple quantities and sizes of each item that you see listed on there are needed to accommodate as many children as possible) or you can also go out and purchase physical items yourself and drop them off at KSW Federal Credit Union in Waterville and Belfast.

The other day, I had the pleasure of sitting down via Zoom with Josh Hunt, Marketing Director and Community Liaison at KSW, and Rick Dorian, Executive Director of the Maine Children's Home.

We had a really raw discussion about what this pandemic has done to our communities and how serious the need is all over Maine this year. You can check out the complete discussion we had below.

And remember, you can help KSW Federal Credit Union and Maine Children's Home by using their Amazon wishlist link or by dropping items off in-person at KSW locations in Waterville and Belfast.
