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.

Breges' Global Studies Student Travel Program, Hillman Community Schools

Posted By: Marianne Ableidinger (July 20, 2017)
If you had the chance to travel globally would you do it? Students from Hillman Schools, my son included, will be traveling to Greece in 2018. He is excited to learn about the culture, the economy and take in the sights. It will not be a vacation, while on this trip he will research different aspects of Greece and apply it to earning high school credit and college credits. Anybody can read about Greece from books or the internet but to go there in person and actually live it, is an experience these young students will never forget. When they return they will be sharing their experience with the community so others can also travel, even if it is through the eyes of a teenager.

Maybury Farm

Posted By: Cindy Kern (July 20, 2017)
Maybury Farm is a non-profit educational working farm with a mission to connect our community to animals and agriculture. We have 70 farm animals, a farm garden and dozen of acres or forests and fields for kids and families to enjoy hands-on experiences. What we lack, though, is indoor meeting space that is provides protection from the weather and this limits our ability to host schools, camps and classes. We are planning to convert part of our current maintenance building into an affordable indoor classom but in order to do that we need another storage area for our farm tractors. We are requesting consideration to help fund the purchase and installation of a simple metal carport to store our tractors and allow us to create an affordable indoor classroom space and further our educational mission. Thank you for your consideration!

Live Like Max

Posted By: Brianna Canedo (July 19, 2017)
Live Like Max is a charity created by the Pardington Family in honor of their Son/Brother passing away due to an enlarged heart or "athlete's heart". Max was an amazing person and athlete and a simple heart check could have saved his life. The foundation will now put this money to good use by spreading awareness to student-athletes and their families by providing echocardiograms at no cost, they also educate schools and donate AEDs. Another goal is to make it mandatory that all high school student athletes have a heart screen. The Pardington family deserves this because they were just awarded with the lifetime achievement award in the Hall of fame by Canton for all their hard work they have done in the city& charity work. This money would help continue allow them to save even more lives and families from losing their children. Check out their website at www.livelikemax.org
