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.

PBJ Outreach is a ministry to the homeless in Detroit, through the volunteers of members of Our Lady of Good Counsel Church in Plymouth and other local groups/individuals. The mission is feeding and fellowship of the 250+ homeless who gather each Saturday - no matter what the weather - to await the PBJ folks who bring food, clothing and other essentials - on the corner of Martin Luther King Blvd and Third Street in Detroit. PBJ Outreach has been doing this every Saturday for nearly 15 years, including Christmas and Thanksgiving. Each Saturday, bags of donated food (including fruit, bread & PB&J sandwiches) are provided. Once a month, a hot meal and clothing is also available. ALL donations go directly to the homeless. There is NO overhead or administrative fees. When the City of Detroit closed the warming center nearby, PBJ continued to serve the people. Your $1,000 donation would help!

Smith Girl Scouts, 112 girls at Smith Elementary School, would love to give their community (Smith School in Plymouth) two large sandboxes, to facilitate outdoor play and encourage girls (and boys!) to use their imaginations and get their hands dirty! Parents and girls will install the boxes. We will promote these additions to the Smith playground on social media and during the weekly broadcast phone call and email from Smith School! Thank you again!

Boyne Falls class of 2022: Itís a tradition at Boyne Falls School for the seniors to earn an educational trip to Hawaii just prior to graduation. Our class is dedicated to working hard for the next 4 years to earn this trip. Many of our students have never had an opportunity to travel and learn from an experience such as this. Our main fundraiser is serving food at our class booth at the Boyne Falls Polish Festival. By participating in the Polish Festival each year during high school, our students develop a positive work ethic, learn about responsibility and goal setting. They are cleaning, helping with cooking, food preparation, and serving the community in which they live. At the start of freshman year, the class purchases a booth from the recent graduates. The booth costs $1000. The donation would give them a great start towards an educational and

The Lions club of Hillman is a 501(c)(3)organization.
They provide weekend backpacks to students who are identified by staff who are in need of meals for the weekend. The backpack contains 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 dinners and 4 snacks. At this time, the Club is limited on the number of students it can provide backpacks for. This grant would allow the Lions Club to provide food to many more students who are in need at the elementary, middle school and high school.
