Local credit union holds annual 'Guess when the snow will melt event'

BREWER, Maine (WABI) - Spring may be here, but the piles of snow aren't going away anytime soon.

The folks at Brewer Federal Credit Union are using it to their advantage.

For one dollar, you can guess what date the giant snow bank outside their North Main Street location will melt.

All the money raised goes to the bank's Ending Hunger Campaign.

"The Maine Credit Union League's Ending Hunger campaign has been going on since 1990, and over that time, Maine's credit unions and its members have raised over $8,000,000 for the purpose of ending hunger. Last year alone, Maine's credit unions raised over $740,000. We couldn't do what we do without our members, and all the folk that are members at our credit unions,” said David Stanhope, Assistant Vice President of Brewer Federal Credit Union.

The winner will receive a $50 Visa gift card.

If multiple people choose the correct date, a winner will be drawn randomly.
