Community Financial team members.
Running through August 30th, Community Financial will donate $60,000 to organizations that make your community better. Recipients are chosen based on nominations submitted at SummerofSharing.org, where we ask you to consider, “What GOOD could you do with $1,000?”
One of the 2019 recipients, the Lightning Robotics team from Plymouth-Canton Community Schools, shared with us the various ways they might put their $1,000 Summer of Sharing donation to good use. These included: helping students pay dues and travel costs, purchasing robot parts, and investing in better tools and equipment to teach students.

Students learn STEM and business concepts that can be applied to real-world professional settings. They also host numerous events for children of all ages to get them interested in STEM and robotics. Students that participate in the program learn about teamwork, leadership, and giving back to their community.
“The mentors and student leaders of Lightning Robotics taught me how to work productively as part of a larger group, and how to speak up so that my contributions would be heard,” said alumni and mentor to the program, Ryan Todd.
