2023 Ending Hunger Campaign a Huge Success!

Representatives from Sebasticook Valley FCU had the opportunity to attend a luncheon on February 13, 2024 to celebrate the enormous success of the 2023 Maine Credit Unions’ Campaign for Ending Hunger. The Campaign raised a remarkable $1,221,868.94 in 2023! All credit unions in the state of Maine participated. SVFCU, with the help of its hardworking staff, and very generous members, was able to raise over $31,500! The money that SVFCU raised will be donated to area food pantries, snack pack programs in the schools and a local farm share program run by SVH. As always, 100% of all funds raised by this campaign are donated to organizations that work to fight food insecurity in our state. SVFCU has raised over $400,000 for this Campaign since 1990.

Thank you to all of our staff and our members that make this Campaign so successful!

Thinking About Buying a New Car?

When buying a new car, several factors should be carefully considered to ensure that you make a well-informed decision that aligns with your needs, preferences, and budget.

First, determine your budget. Consider not only the purchase price of the car but also ongoing expenses such as insurance, maintenance, fuel, and taxes. If you decide to finance, Sebasticook Valley FCU has options with competitive rates!

Next, assess your transportation needs and lifestyle. Consider factors such as the size of your family, daily commute, parking availability, and typical driving conditions. Determine whether you require a compact car, SUV, truck, or hybrid vehicle, and prioritize features such as fuel efficiency, cargo space, safety technology, and towing capacity accordingly.

Research different makes and models to find one that suits your preferences and meets your requirements. Compare features, performance, reliability ratings, safety features, and reviews from reputable sources. Take test drives to evaluate the handling, comfort, and overall driving experience of each vehicle.

Don’t forget to consider long-term factors such as resale value and depreciation rates. Certain brands and models hold their value better than others, which can significantly affect the total cost of ownership over time.

By carefully considering these factors and conducting thorough research, you can make a well-informed decision when buying a new car that meets your needs, preferences, and budget.
