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.
What GOOD could you do with $1,000? What charity, community group or school group could use some extra funds?
Nominations will begin on June 1, 2018.
Distinguished Young Women of Michigan, o/o Pat Hermatz, Treasurer
Posted By: Kris Munroe (June 15, 2018)
The Distinguished Young Women of Michigan program is dedicated to helping young women be their best selves by offering scholarships to help high school juniors continue their education.
The DYW program changes lives and empowers young women. It reinforces what is best about each participant, while encouraging her to grow. The program focuses on scholarship, community service and achieving goals, while providing valuable information and practice in interviewing and public speaking.
Our director, a 1977 state winner, died unexpectedly this month and the $1,000 would be used as a special award at the July 21st program in Canton. Angela Medders Bobo, who embodied all the DYW qualities, mentored young women and continued to be a force in their lives to help them grow and realize their potential. This award will capture her spirit of service while providing additional funds for a young woman to continue her education.
"I AM" food bank
Posted By: Connie Lee Atkisson (June 14, 2018)
this is a small family church where I attend who has a location in two places. One location is in Rockwood where we saw people trash diving behind the local supermarket trying to find food for their families. we have saved and built a special location downstairs in the Rockwood building which has met inspection and become a food bank for the area. We give out boxes every Wednesday to whomever is in need. this would really help stock the food shelves as the numbers are growing. Last week we had to turn away two families and they came in with small children. We all felt terrible about it as they were really disappointed. Please do consider gifting us so that we might gift others!
NEMCSA/Region 9 Area Agency on Aging

Medicare and Medicaid are complicated programs to say the least, but there is a program that can help immensely. Through the Medicare/Medicaid Assistance Program (MMAP), trained volunteers and staff provide free personalized and high quality assistance to older adults and persons with disabilities through one-on-one education, counseling and problem solving so that they can make informed health benefit decisions. The trained counselors meet with beneficiaries at their homes, senior centers, libraries, and other community settings. Counselors also provide community presentations on Medicare benefits, how to choose a prescription plan, identifying and reporting fraud and abuse, etc. The $1,000 would be used to support these efforts with training, materials and mileage.
Kim Gall's 1st Grade Classroom
Posted By: Kim Gall (June 14, 2018)
My story starts with a move from a Kindergarten classroom to a much smaller classroom for 1st grade. Compared to other rooms in the building my new room is very small. My husband and I moved all the furniture out ourselves. There were 20 tables, 12 file cabinets, and a host of other things all piled up. I'd love to make it feel more like a welcoming classroom by buying colorful beanbag chairs for the children to sit in, a CD player to listen to stories on, aesthetically pleasing, colorful throw rugs for the floor, the carpet is unraveling in places, fabric to cover the bulletin boards, and valences for the large windows to cut the starkness of the sun coming in. I would love to get sheer panels to filter and soften the light that comes through. Thank you so much!

Miracle League of Plymouth (MLP) removes barriers that prevent children & adults with mental & physical special needs, allowing them to play baseball.
MLP provides Baseball Cards, Medals, Certificates, Easter Egg Hunt & Trick or Treating.Holiday Family Party, marching in the Fourth of July Parade, provides a concession stand, photographers at every game.
MLP in partnership with Kelly’s Kidz has added yoga & bowling in the winter.
MLP’s emphasis this year will focus Buddies, we cannot run our program without these amazing volunteers. MLP will hold a friendraising event for volunteers & MLP families this fall.
To insure out players is very costly. We will seeking out donors to off set this cost, as we do not want to pass these increases on to families. We strive to keep our registration fees stable. We have resources that assist players if the cost of registration is unattainable.
