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?

EEF Educational Excellence Foundation (Lightning Robotics)

This team has given me great learning opportunities, such as mechanical knowledge, but aside from the robots, teams like this give you social bonds and chances to do things that you wouldn't be able to in any other program. This year has been a blast for me, and I can't wait to continue in the future. $1,000 would allow us to diminish travel costs for upcoming events, making them more accessible to the students.

The team has over all changed my life by giving me teamwork skills, design process skills and many more to help me with my academic life. They have also taught me about how my ideas could impact something no matter how small you may feel. The team is so big, but you have a connection with everyone.

Lightning Robotics is a wonderful team. I've been part of it for my entire high school career, and it's really inspired many students to not only pursue careers within the STEM field, but also to pursue leadership. It's led to many girls being interested in STEM as well, in this past few years our team has participated in girl-focused events like Digital Divas, Girl Scout Exploration Day, and Bosch Girls in Engineering Day. Robotics has led me personally to major in Biology at Alma College, as well as teaching me essential life skills such as communication, leadership, and teamwork. Our team believes it's important to participate in and help out with many community outreach and service events. Each year, we participate in Relay for Life, the Rotary Chicken Dinner, United Way Make a Difference Day Senior Yard Clean-Up, and Salvation Army Bell-Ringing. We also demonstrate our robots and knowledge at the Ypsilanti Heritage Festival, Robots in the D, Robots in the Park, and various other demos to help the community aware of the growing opportunities within the STEM field.

Barefoot Productions has been a notable theater company in Plymouth since 2006 providing entertainment for all ages. Our plan is to continue to bring quality productions to Plymouth and surrounding communities. Fine arts funding has been reduced making it challenging to bring superior performances to the area but we have persevered and been creative in our efforts.
We are proud to say our reach extends into communities surrounding Plymouth. And just think, those who support the arts tend to also boost the economy in these areas by patronizing neighboring businesses such as restaurants, shopping centers, and even babysitters when they attend shows.
Barefoot seeks to continue to be a solid part of the community and bring culture, diversity, and a consistent level of well-crafted experiences for all to enjoy!
HUMC Annual Back to school bash

We at the HUMC have witnessed over the years that Our Annual "Back to School Bash" community outreach is a tremendous way to help all our children get a head start in the new school year. Through generous donations from our church and community we are able to donate student school supplies and many other helpful items to each and every child who comes to the event. The event is held at our church in a atmosphere of love and caring, doing many things including indoor/outdoor games, crafts, face painting, free haircuts, attractions and refreshments. All this is takes place with the generous help of many volunteers from our church and community. Each year more and more children are participating and our
community would greatly appreciate being considered for your very
