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.

I am the EL Coordinator/Teacher at ACA. We work with students that speak other languages. There is over 33 languages spoken at ACA! We help students learn English and apply it to what they are learning in the classroom. We would love to use $1,000 to purchase I-pads for our EL students. There are so many apps and games that help to enhance learning English and make it fun!

Lewiston 50 Plus Club

The Lewiston 50 Plus Club, our local senior center, is in need of a new boiler and hot water system. This donation would be earmarked specifically for the purchase of equipment only. We have held fundraisers for labor charges and have the funds to pay that portion.

Our building is aging, and the boiler we have now is approximately 35 years old. The system doesn't support the size of the building, is not energy efficient, and is difficult to repair because of its age.

We provide a variety of services to the public and our 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.

Due to energy costs, we are unable to use the club as much as we can, this system will allow more use for less money.

Thank you!

I have had the privilege of teaching at Achieve for the past 3 years. It is an amazing school that does so much for the students. We have many families that are not English speakers and we help with the cultural differences and getting their children off on the right foot. We have families that are disadvantaged and have programs that help them. I am proud to be a member of the staff and feel that this is a worthy organization to receive one of your grants. So much good could be done with this money!

Achieve Charter Academy is serving students to achieve their very best academic potential. We do this by differentiating instruction for all learners and creating opportunities for students to grow academically. These funds would help us continue to meet our mission, by purchasing resources that would continue to push our students in small group learning environments that are designed to meet their learning potential. In the year ahead, we will focus on project based learning in these small groups and use these funds to support our projects. Thank you for considering Achieve Academy.
