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.
Northeast Mi Chapter of the Red Cross
Posted By: Susan Huffman (August 9, 2018)
I have been a volunteer with the American Red Cross for over 8 years. Iíve seen many families that have lost everything. Most donations are used to assist families with their financial and recovery needs. Itís the children that breaks my heart. This donation will allow our local chapter to make up activity kits that include coloring books, crayons, cards, a game (and more) to a child that has lost everything.Just in the last year in our small 10 county area we assisted 92 adults and 51 children. These kits occupy a childís time while parents are trying to work on their recovery.

Crossroads Farm is a rural youth ministry dedicated to helping impoverished teenagers in Hillsdale, a severely depressed county in southwest Michigan. In an area which rivals Wayne County for high rates of teen suicide, teen pregnancy, methamphetamine addiction, broken homes, and gun violence, Crossroads has existed for 18 years to provide weekly youth activities, small groups, spiritual nourishment and mentoring, life coaching, academic support, a place of belonging, and good clean fun for several hundred middle and high school students. Personalized help for these students can include transportation, assistance with food and clothing if necessary. Crossroads facilities and staff are 100% funded by donations from caring people, and meeting financial needs is a constant concern. Concerned residents of Northville, Livonia, Grosse Pointe and Plymouth join together to provide a Christmas gift for each student. For some, it provides essential provisions. Please consider!

Kids today face many challenges in their young lives, from depression and anxiety to poverty and domestic abuse, that without healthy coping skills, nurturing relationships and support can leave them feeling alone and overwhelmed. SPN Survivors partners with area schools, hospitals and children's support services to provide Comfort Kits to those who are struggling and assist with self-care and healthy coping skills. Our Comfort Kits not only provide ways to reduce the stress of the situation but also provide support and encouragement to "Always Keep Fighting for better days ahead because #YouMatter!"
SPN Survivors is dedicated to making a difference in our community through mental health education, awareness and suicide prevention. We want to help you build a foundation of good mental health while shining a spotlight on local, state and national resources.
Our motto is "Helping People, Saving Lives: The Family Business!"
