Posted By: Patricia Garrett (June 2, 2022)
The Lewiston 50 + Club is located in Lewiston, MI, and is Lewiston's Senior Center. However, as the name states, members are welcome at 50! Dues are $10.00 per year, and are due in June to have voting rights! Meals thru MCCOA are served 4 days a week, as well as various fundraisers, including bingo, euchre and euchre tournaments, and exercise aerobics. The 50 + Club has other food programs including TFAP, 40 Pounders, etc. A member benefit is discounts at local businesses, favorite restaurants and more. The current building needs are roof repairs, ceiling tiles, flooring and painting etc.… The Lewiston 50 + Club would definitely benefit from a donation from Community Financial.

The SOS (Shelly Olree's Shelter)

Posted By: Patricia Garrett (June 2, 2022)
The SOS (Shelly Olree's Shelter) is a non-profit 501c3 rescue that offers shelter and hope for homeless cats and kittens. Mission - Making a difference, one animal at a time! Realizing they cannot save them all but to the ones they do save, They ARE making that difference.
SOS was conceived in 2008 when it housed 19 cats and kittens that needed homes, had them spayed and neutered and then proceeded to successfully re-home them all. In 2015, they built a brand new building, meant to be a shelter! Through blood, sweat and tears, designed, built, pounded nails, painted, painted, and painted some more, a state of the art shelter for the all the homeless cats and kittens that need us. Their supplies of food, litter and cleaning goods for the SOS shelter would benefit greatly from the extra funds donated from Community Financial.

Elk Country Animal Shelter

Posted By: Patricia Garrett (June 2, 2022)
The Elk Country Animal Shelter (ECAS) operating costs have risen the same as the cost of living for each of us. While their shelter operations, fundraising events, contributions, and generous local support cover the bulk of normal operating expenses, they need additional funding to provide enhanced services like Community Spay/Neuter Program, to improve or add kennels and fencing, and to purchase equipment and materials vital to maintaining an up-do-date, efficient shelter. They depend on local, state, and national charitable organizations. Every penny a schoolchild donates, every five dollar check a senior citizen writes, every dollar ECAS collects goes to help care for the animals housed at the shelter. The community provides Pedigree Dog Food for dogs housed at the shelter. Tax deductible donations to help the shelter from individuals and organizations like this one, from Community Financial would be very valuable to the continuing success of ECAS.
