Summer of Sharing Campaign

Community Financial Credit Union has been enhancing the lives of our members and our communities for over 65 years. The word “community” is not only in our name, but it is the core of what we do. We know that Community Financial would not exist without our members and the communities in which they live.

Strong business can only grow from a strong community that benefits everyone, which is why helping nonprofits, educational, and community groups is a part of our culture. We believe these groups have a tremendous impact on the communities we serve and it’s both our responsibility and pleasure to support them. We are committed to the communities where we do business and have devoted both time and money to help them succeed. Partnerships with local school districts, The Salvation Army, United Way, and American Cancer Society are just a few of the ways we are making a difference.

To help build stronger communities, we are reaching out to our neighbors and asking for your help. Think about it.

Nominations will begin on June 1, 2018.

Hope Clinic

Posted By: Nancy Maleki (June 17, 2018)
Most of the patients come from Westland or areas nearby because many do not have reliable transportation and cannot afford health insurance. Once they make it to Hope, our volunteer doctors, nurse, pharmacist, therapist and social worker do all they can to help that patient as much as possible. Most come for medical issues when they have nowhere else to turn. Many have multiple issues and need medication or to see a specialist, and we do all we can to refer them or get them assistance. Some simply need someone to listen. We need monetary assistance to help them, such as glucose test strips for diabetics, computers to keep track of patients and their needs, pregnancy test kits or blood pressure cuffs. Not a dollar we receive is ever wasted. Many people come to us having waited a long time for care. No one is turned away.

Partnership for the Arts and Humanities

The Village Arts Factory, located on Ridge Rd and Cherry Hill in Canton, will soon be opening their doors to Female Veterans who are returning from their deployments with Post Traumatic Stress. These service women have given much to protect our country and our way of life. In return the Partnership for Arts and Humanities is trying to give back to them by offering programs that will enable them to live a more productive life dealing with the Traumatic Stress as the result of serving our country. The Partnership relies on donations to carry out this heartfelt project. Every donation for this project will help ease the memories of war these brave women have encountered. We are grateful for Community Financial's community support to all charities they support.

Vista Maria

Posted By: Michelle Varner-Smith (June 15, 2018)
The Lost Voices program at Vista Maria offers five-day expressive therapy workshops for girls ages 11-18 receiving residential treatment and care. The youth come from impoverished backgrounds and have limited exposure to fine arts and musical education. Most of them are there to escape abuse, neglect and exploitation. Bringing the Lost Voices program to campus expands their ability to work through their prior trauma and express themselves through music. Through Lost Voices, the girls are introduced to the genre of roots music, write their original compositions and make their voices heard by performing in concert in front of their peers. The experience is designed to provide a therapeutic outlet for many of our girl’s difficult thoughts and feelings as well as advance a new and engaging medium for personal growth and healing and vastly expands their ability to work through their prior trauma and express themselves through music.

Hillman Community Radio

Posted By: Thomas W. Edison (June 15, 2018)
On Jan 29, 2014, Hillman Community Radio, Inc. received license to build a Low-Power FM radio station from the Federal Communications Commission, and from that date volunteers from the area have worked to develop WXHR-LP FM to serve this rural Northeast Michigan community.
All WXHR programming has been under direction of community volunteers and provides a wide spectrum of music, entertainment, and discussion, as well as news and weather. Additionally, local civic and school activities are regularly broadcast, and have become a very popular programming component, especially high school sports. But, our capacity to provide remote event coverage has definite technical limitations.
To improve our remote broadcasting we would definitely benefit from the capacity provided by the Remote2Go-1 package, which includes a JK Audio RemoteMix2 Field Mixer, 2 - Audio-Technica Headsets, and a water proof carrying-case.
We thank CFCU for the opportunity to apply for support.

Shelter Association of Washtenaw County

The Shelter Association of Washtenaw County's mission is to end homelessness one person at a time through their residential, non-residential and warming center programs. This past year they offered temporary shelter and hope to 328 residential clients; they provided sleeping accommodations during winter's coldest months to an additional 500 men and women during Warming Center hours and they helped 232 men and women find permanent, sustainable housing. 1069 individuals walked through the doors of the Delonis Center and benefited from case management, resource allocation and shelter services including: medical treatment, mental and professional services, group counseling, daily meal service, legal aide assistance, showers, storage facilities and social activities. There are currently 85 people on a waiting list for our Residential Program. It is our goal to find sustainable housing for anyone who finds themselves experiencing homelessness.
