SUMMER OF SHARING

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 everything we do. We know that Community Financial would not exist without our members and the communities in which they live.

2020 has been a year of unprecedented firsts. And while many things have changed and our summer activities may not be the same this year, Community Financial remains committed to helping the communities we serve.

10 Years of Sharing!

This year, we’re celebrating 10 Years of Sharing and we’re excited to support 60 great organizations this summer—with your help! Community Financial will donate $60,000 to nonprofit, educational and community organizations* throughout Michigan! That's $1,000 a day every Monday – Friday from June 8, 2020 – August 28, 2020.

The Lewiston 50 + Club

Posted By: Patricia Garrett (June 3, 2020)
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.Ö The Lewiston 50 + Club would definitely benefit from a donation from Community Financial. Not being open and not able to do any fundraisers this would help a lot.

Elk Country Animal Shelter

Posted By: Patricia Garrett (June 3, 2020)
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.

SOS (Shelly Olree's Shelter)

Posted By: Patricia Garrett (June 3, 2020)
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.

Lewiston 50 Plus Club Senior Center

Posted By: Janice Burtch (June 3, 2020)
Because we are a senior center,closed because of todays circumstances, and we are privately funded, we are relying on donations to keep paying bills until we can reopen. We pray that we have enough to keep going, and can keep our doors open for the good of our seniors and community. We were ramping up fundraising to upgrade carpeting and other flooring, and add more safety measures to our center. Obviously like every other place, everything has been put on hold. Your donation would make a huge difference and give us extra breathing space. We appreciate your consideration.

3rd grade at Orchard Hills Elementary

Posted By: Jamie Christen (June 3, 2020)
I would like to add books to my classroom library in an effort to make it more inclusive. I have a wishlist that features BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) characters as well as authors and illustrators. It is important that students see themselves in the books we are reading and my library needs more books that represent the students in my class. Itís also important students learn about people who have different ways of life in order to combat stereotypes and biases that are formed when kids are only exposed to one type of narrative. These diverse books and the discussions we will have about them will help not only my students literacy but their social emotional learning skills. I hope you can be my partner in helping my students and all my future students become understanding and caring members of their community.
