A Little Bit of Hope Goes a Long Way
Charlie Hewitt, The Hopeful Project
Maine artist Charlie Hewitt’s Hopeful Project began as inspiration. Now, his iconic designed word “Hopeful” can be found lit up on buildings, traveling around town car bumpers, and hanging in galleries across the state. Charlie became a cPort Credit Union business member in part because of the work we do in the community, particularly for immigrants new to our country.
Charlie’s message of hope is spreading gradually throughout America. It even made an appearance at the 2021 Presidential Inauguration.
Brick By Brick
Prentice Hospitality Group, Twelve Restaurant
Named by the New York Times as one of America's top 50 restaurants, TWELVE sets the bar high on Portland's up-and-coming waterfront. The restaurant is one of several exciting and successful ventures of the Prentice Hospitality Group. Before opening the restaurant, the historic building that houses the restaurant had to be dismantled and reassembled brick by brick to its current location. cPort Credit Union was chosen to provide financing for the purchase of the property while also meeting the financial needs to turn the previous space into a vibrant, spectacular culinary experience. Diners at TWELVE not only enjoy delicious, locally sourced food but also experience a modern take on Maine's maritime past.
