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?

Ridge Wood Elementary

$1,000 would help our student population by providing more materials to expand our leveled reading library and also help students to organize their learning with Leadership Tools. All our students are working on setting goals and making a plan to follow through with their goals. The money would greatly support materials needed so every student is able to track and practice their goals.
Bentley Elementary School
Posted By: Shannon Way (June 1, 2017)
The Bentley Elementary library services about 600 students each year. Students learn how to operate 1:1 devices, about digital citizenship, research, and how to navigate a library. Since the school's opening in 1994, many books have circulated; making students learn, grow and love to read! Now, over 20 years later, our collection has begun to be outdated. Though new books are purchased every year there are still sections of our library that are in great need of updating - sections like dinosaurs, space, languages, history, countries. In these sections we have learned a lot over 20 years and our students need these up to date books so that they are gaining accurate information. With 1,000 we would update as many books as we could, providing over 600 students with the information they need! Thank you!
