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.
88.1 The Park
Posted By: Bill Keith (June 4, 2018)
881 the Park has been the voice of the Plymouth-Canton community for 46 years. We've served our hometown while teaching students skills they'll use for a lifetime.
In 2017 we helped a students raise money to benefit Plymouth-Canton families facing financial hardship through the SJ5K. We partnered with a non-profit music incubator to spotlight student musicians on “The Scene”, our local music program.
The debut of our “On the Beat” program saw local law enforcement officers answer listener questions on topics ranging from ordinances to the appropriate use of force. We also examined race in Metro Detroit 50 years after the city's 1967 riots.
Our students have seen the impact of their work on the lives of their friends and neighbors. They've also seen that impact bear fruit in their lives. We're a place where teaching students makes our community better, and we're proud to call Plymouth-Canton our home.
Lewiston Family Ministry Center Food Pantry
Posted By: Janice Burtch (June 4, 2018)
Lewiston Family Ministry under the direction of Linda Root and the leadership of Full Gospel Assembly in Atlanta, is a small food pantry in Lewiston. We recently lost our fresh produce and attempted to replace it with staples. Until a month ago, we were able to pass out staples every Wednesday. Now we are open the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month, because of costs.
This money would be used for staples to help fill our pantry and meats to fill our freezers.
Our workers are all volunteers who also deliver to shut ins after we close. No one ever gets paid and most of our volunteers open their own wallets to help keep our doors open.
We publish on Facebook and encourage our patrons to check on and assist each other with life's challenges, and to lift the morale of our community.
Thank you and God Bless.

We have been helping families in Lewiston and surrounding area's for over 20 years and hope to do so for many, many more. Thank you for your consideration.

St. Vincent de Paul's “Journey to Housing Program” was started in 2013, We are a transitional housing program for the homeless in western Wayne County and support those in need of shelter by providing them with move-in costs, furniture, household goods and monthly rent subsidies until the family becomes financially independent (with 12-24 months of weekly counseling).
