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.

Nominations will begin on June 1, 2018.

Veterans of Foreign War Auxiliary to Post 4012 - Northville, MI

Posted By: Kathy Marshall (June 11, 2018)
The VFW Auxiliary (VFWA) is composed of a group of men and woman who are related to Veterans who have been in foreign wars. We as an organization raise money to help all veterans who are in need, have medical problems, emotional problems, etc. We have a hospital fund so that we can have parties at the VA hospital for the patients and we provide them with new clothing, gift cards to the canteen to purchase sundries for themselves. We also provide and place flags on the Veterans graves in the cemeteries in Northville. We support the Great Lakes Cemetery, Camp Trotter (a camp for veterans children), National Home (a housing facility for veterans that need a helping hand. With your generous donation of $1000, we can continue to support those who have fought for the wonderful freedoms that we have in America. Thank you!

Ridge Wood Elementary

Our student leadership at Ridge Wood in reading to take it to the next level. We we use the grant funds to help create more possibilities with student leadership in presenting our morning news. An upgrade in equipment and improvement of some materials will help give more students the opportunities to use their leadership skills to help inform the school of news and events important to our school. Being able to work remotely for outdoor or events around the school will make it easier for students to take control of our announcements and include many more learning examples around our school. The money would be used to purchase items that would help us expand our production capabilities (wireless microphones, portable green screen, etc)

Ridge Wood Elementary

As a kindergarten teacher, I am eager to keep our love for reading alive by creating a literacy rich classroom. The money would help us to organize and establish our classroom library by purchasing bins for books for easy access by students. Additionally, money will be helpful in building our leveled reading library by purchasing age appropriate books for independent reading, as well as high interest books for instruction. Having a range of reading material is important when fostering the early learning and excitement of reading. We have 3 kindergarten classes that would benefit from this grant.

Helping Hands Gifts

Helping Hands Gifts helps businesses do good for the greater good. We connect businesses to opportunities to serve those doing frontline work in local communities. From helping a food pantry get 2000+ rolls of toilet paper through social media posting, to nominating local charities to groups that donate, to finding space for 2 large charities and more. One charity has a $75k savings over 2 years; another almost $10M in 10 years! We've helped charities in various ways: building or storage space, donations, services, awareness or volunteers. We also focus on one critical issue a year that needs help; this year: Opioid epidemic. A $1000 for a charity like us is huge as we take no money from the organizations we support. We've helped 50 already in 2018, countless individuals and impact bottom line of businesses who help us. Thank you!

Living and Learning Enrichment Center

Posted By: Rachelle Vartanian (June 10, 2018)
Living and Learning works with teens and adults who are on the autism spectrum or have related challenges. There are very few programs out there specifically designed for teens and adults, most programs are for small children. Teens and adults with autism or related challenges spend most evenings alone without friends. Living and learning has Friday and Saturday Night Hang-Outs for these young adults. We also have parent support groups, and job skills/employment for this population. If we are fortunate enough to receive your donation we will share it with parents who need assistance in paying for programs for their child. Insurance doesn't cover social skill groups or summer camps for people with special needs. This money will allow many families to receive services that their child desperately needs. Thank you for your consideration.
