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.
What GOOD could you do with $1,000? What charity, community group or school group could use some extra funds?
Nominations will begin on June 1, 2018.
Cole Canoe Base
Posted By: Gus Chutorash (July 14, 2018)
Cole Canoe Base is a beautiful 501c3 camp that serves thousands of kids each year. We have a high adventure program that includes a 30 foot tower, a bouldering wall and a zip line. Two of the programs that we host there are the night climb and the night zip. We would like to have lighting on the bouldering wall and tower to enhance our program. The power is there, we just need to purchase and install the appropriate fixtures. If there is money remaining other needs include leather gloves for belaying and repelling, and removeable holds.
Thank you for this opportunity. Check us out at www.coloecanoebase.com

The Elk Country Animal Shelter is a hard working organization - efforts to help the animals in the area and surrounding areas. Helping the owners in difficult situations care for their pets. We board dogs or cats free of charge for those hospitalized, family emergency, fire or any other situation that puts a hardship on the family. The shelter offers low cost spay and neuter, vaccinations and heart worm testing. Our object is to help people provide basic care for their pets to help keep them healthy.
All of our dogs and cats are fully vaccinated, spayed or neutered, micro chipped, heart worm tested for dogs or cats leukemia tested. We charge a minimal adoption fee to help put healthy animals in new forever homes.
We run our shelter most entirely on our fundraising efforts so any additional gifts would be much appreciated.

I am a board member of MCREST (all members are volunteers). We are a non-profit charity whose mission statement is to provide homeless and displaced individuals the opportunity for successful transition to independence.
We help clients throughout the entire Southeast Michigan area - clients DO NOT need to be Macomb County residents, but they do have to be able to get to our office in Roseville.
We have a Learning & Resource Center (LRC) that uses an innovative approach to job readiness training and job placement services specifically designed to assist the homeless with finding employment.
Our LRC has great success training and placing students in certificate programs that result in LIVING WAGE jobs and housing with assistance of our supportive housing programs.
Your help will allow us to increase the number of students attending certificate programs due to the tuition and transportation assistance. Thank you so much for the opportunity!
