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.

Interational Foundation for CDLK5 Research
Posted By: Erica price (June 8, 2017)
June is CDLK5 awareness month and $1000 donation would be amazing to spread the word and help with research! This rare genetic disorder starts at a very young age with multiple health complications including seizures that cause neurological issues. My friend's daughter is affected and I would love to help her Evie and many of the other children out there that are waiting for a cure! Little recognition is given to this disorder so this would be wonderful. Go to www.CDLK5.com to learn more!
Fire / EMS Members Charity
Posted By: Deb Van Coillie (June 8, 2017)
The Fire / EMS Members charity is comprised of off-duty Fire & EMS personnel including their spouses, children and parents. As Fire / EMS workers we see tragedies and hardship that families go through. Because of our commitment as public servants we have a natural drive to help others in need.
The Fire/ EMS Members Charity is not affiliated with any one single Fire or EMS Department. We are our own Charity and operate solely on a volunteer basis.
None of our Board of Directors or Members are paid for their service or services.
We operate with the least amount of overhead as possible. Paying only for licenses, insurances, office supplies and necessities to keep the organization running.
The Fire / EMS Members Charity works closely with local Health Department, Department of Human Services (DHS) and other agencies to ensure our families get everything they need. All families we help are anonymous to the general public to protect our families respect and dignity.
Plymouth-Canton Music Boosters (PCMB)
Posted By: Linda Maurer (June 8, 2017)
The Plymouth-Canton Music Boosters is an organization that supports the multiple band programs at PCEP. It not only supports the award winning Plymouth-Canton Marching Band, but also supports the 5 different band programs within the school. From a personal perspective, the band program has done so much for my son. The kids in the marching band program work extremely hard and put in a ton of hours of practice during the summer months to perfect their program. It teaches the kids discipline, teamwork, dedication, a sense of belonging, and most importantly, it helps them learn that it is not about the awards, it is about their experience. The band program is a competitive program and can be costly for parents. This money can help reduce costs for our families and help us reach future band members of tomorrow! GO PCMB!
Lewiston 50 Plus Club
Posted By: Patricia Garrett (June 7, 2017)
The Lewiston 50 Plus Club is the local senior center that provides a variety of services to the public and their members, including cards, bingo, congregate meals thru MCCOA, a reading library, arts and crafts, and medical equipment. There is never a charge for the library or medical equipment. They are in need of a new boiler and hot water system. This donation would be used to purchase the equipment needed as the labor portion was raised by the Club's fundraisers. $1000 would be an awesome help for the costs of the new heating system.
