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.

Silver Springs

Posted By: Angie Phillips (June 3, 2017)
I am the Physical Education teacher at Silver Springs Elementary. I also help build leaders by working with students on the morning announcements. Our students work with a video camera and green screen to create the morning announcements that all classes watch to know what is happening at the school. This includes news reporters to tell everyone the date and lunch menu, weather reporters so the students will know how to dress for recess, students to lead the pledges, daily holiday reporters, as well as students reporting on community service initiatives or anything else important happening at our school (like credit union deposit day). These leadership roles allow students to find their voice and help their classmates do the same.

VFW Auxiliary to Post 4012 Northville, MI

Posted By: Kathy Marshall (June 3, 2017)
As the Treasurer, I want to tell you: The VFW Auxiliary works for all Veterans in the community, active military, disabled, hospitalized or economically having a hard time. We have paid utility bills, bought food and clothing to help a Veteran get on his/her feet again. We have fund raises to continue supporting our Veterans and their families. We do bingo parties at the VA Hospital, donate new socks, t-shirts, and clothes. We also buy them gift cards for use at the canteen shops at the hospital. We help our wounded warriors. We recently honored our First Responders by having a burger dinner for the responders and their families from the Northville area. Veterans in need are special projects. They can always call us or stop in and talk to us if they have a need; we will try to help.

Achieve Charter Academy

I'm a first grade teacher at Achieve Charter Academy. I'm extremely fortunate to work at a school where we have dedicated teachers, deans, parents and students.

Unfortunately not all of our families have their basic needs being met. I'd like to use the $1,000 to help all of our struggling families with whatever they might need.

Otsego County Food Pantry (OCFP0

Posted By: Jerry Coger (June 2, 2017)
Hi, this is a great charity in otsego county. I am vice-chair on the pantry board. I also work daily at the pantry. For the almost 20 years that I have been with the pantry, we have grown from feeding a few hundred people a year to over 7000 people a year now. We maximize all our monies given to the best of our abilities. We use over 200 volunteers a month to help us operate and maintain this agency. There is no paid staff to do this work day after day. The hearts of our volunteers are truly size XL. All of us at the Pantry are very proud of the work we do. We know that we are making a difference in the quality of life for the people who use our services. Thank You

Achieve Charter Academy

Our school strives to better educate more students and foster their readiness for college. This $1,000 would help us reach more students and do more good.

Thank you for your consideration!
