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.
Our Summer of Sharing Program has concluded for 2018.
This summer we chose from 266 stories submitted on this site and awarded (60) $1,000 grants to organizations in Michigan! Click the See button to view the charities, community groups and school programs we were able to support this year.
Hillman Community Radio
Posted By: Thomas W. Edison (August 21, 2018)
On Jan 29, 2014, Hillman Community Radio, Inc. received license to build a Low-Power FM radio station from the Federal Communications Commission, and from that date local volunteers have worked to develop WXHR-LP FM to serve this rural Northeast Michigan community.
All WXHR programming is directed by community volunteers and provides a wide spectrum of music, entertainment, and discussion, as well as news and weather. Additionally, local civic and school activities are regularly broadcast, and have become a very popular programming component, especially high school sports. But, our capacity to provide remote event coverage has significant technical limitations.
To improve our remote broadcasting we would definitely benefit from the expanded capacity provided by the Remote2Go-1 package, which includes a JK Audio RemoteMix2 Field Mixer, 2 - Audio-Technica Headsets, and a water proof carrying-case.
We thank CFCU for the opportunity to apply for support to purchase a Remote2Go package.
Mid Michigan Honor Flight
Posted By: Robert Petersen (August 19, 2018)
Mid Michigan Honor Flight takes World War II,Korean and Vietnam Veterans to Washington, D.C. to tour the memorials that their country built for them.They fly free of charge with all expenses covered. We cover 51 counties in Mi. We take 2 flights a year at a cost of approx $110,000 per flight. This becomes a time of capturing lost history, healing from combat stress disorders, and a chance to welcome our veterans home (many of whom were rejected by our citizens during the Vietnam war).These flights bring the community together with police, fire departments, veteran coalitions, youth groups, Boy and Girl Scouts, Blue and gold star mothers, etc. Our motto is "It's never to late too Thank a Veteran. For many of these veterans it is the last chapter of their life and for some it is virtually the last paragraph.

Ralph Holewinski VFW Post 1518
Posted By: Courtney Willits (August 17, 2018)
The Ralph Holewinksi VFW Post 1518 is working on raising money to add an all-inclusive playground to their community park. In hopes all families will come out and play.
Veterans Community Park Playscape is meant to create a unique and innovative play area for children, families, and veterans of all physical abilities to interact in a healthy safe environment that encourages creativity, exercise and fun.
Not only is this playground be ADA accessible but it is also green friendly as well. For every ton of C02 produced to build this playground the American Forests Association will plant a tree to offset the Carbon Footprint. Also, more than half of the playground is made out of recycled materials.
We are very excited to make this Playscape a reality for Otsego County!
Interfaith Volunteer Caregivers

Interfaith Volunteer Caregivers
The Interfaith Volunteer Caregivers Program provides assistance to older and disabled neighbors who need a little extra help. Many frail and physically challenged adults in our community struggle daily to maintain their independence -- our helping hands often make it possible for them to remain in their own homes. Their volunteers are simply neighbors helping neighbors.
The Interfaith Volunteer Care program will try to find a helping hand for anyone. All older and disabled adults who need assistance to remain at home are eligible for help. All services are offered without charge, although donations are greatly appreciated and help us reach out to more people in need.
To respond to the ever-growing needs of older and physically challenged adults living in our communities who struggle daily to maintain their independence at home, while providing meaningful opportunities for volunteers.
