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.

Barefoot Productions

Posted By: Thomas Mattison Jr (July 5, 2017)
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!

Girl Scout Troop 76057

Posted By: Holly Bailey (July 4, 2017)
Girl Scout Troop 76057 is very involved in the community. The troop is made up of over 30 girls in elementary school. In addition to the traditional events of selling cookies and going camping, these girls have given back to the community. Last school year they collected pop tops to donate to the Ronald McDonald House and they visited Children's Hospital. They earned the respecting animals badge. They planted flowers to show appreciation for their school. They learned about global action. The girls made seed packets to help save the bees. The girls have been on many field trips, including Comerica Park. By donating to this group of amazing girl scouts you would allowing them to give back to the community in even more ways than they did last year. This group of girls are a deserving group with leaders that will make sure more good can follow.

PAWS WITH A CAUSE

Posted By: Carole Roney (July 3, 2017)
PAWS WITH A CAUSE is a nonprofit organization that relies on volunteers and the generosity of donors who support the work they do for people with disabilities. PAWS breeds, raises, custom-trains and places specially trained dogs for people who have physical disabilities, are deaf, have seizure disorders and for children with autism. In 2016, 225 puppies were born and 432 people with special needs were able to improve their quality of life. 39 PAWS dogs were also placed into other working careers including arson detection, narcotics detection and PTSD work. Six prisons now have inmates raising puppies changing even more lives. The first Animal Assisted Intervention Dog trained by PAWS is now working at Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital helping hundreds of people with disabilities. More than 300 families who house and raise Paws dogs are volunteers who live in communities throughout Michigan.

Journey to Housing Program

Posted By: Daniel Faoro (July 3, 2017)
We are a non-profit charity formed in 2013 to assist the homeless families in western Wayne County with financial help, moving costs, budgeting, job search and social work counseling. We have had twelve families complete our program based on the 'housing first' model and move on to establish permanent affordable housing since our start. We are classified a 'Special Works' of the St, Vincent de Paul Society in Detroit with a branch office located in Wayne, MI. We have between 3-8 families in our program at a time. Our Board members are committed to integrity and transparency in our work and file an annual report by our CPA with the main office. We have been awarded grants from local and area agencies.

We look forward to your support to continue to expand and broaden our all volunteer program.

Thank you for your consideration on behalf of the JTHP Board.
