9th Annual Warming Hearts & Homes: You Click, We Donate!

Community Financial Credit Union is excited to kick off the holiday season with the return of our 9th annual Warming Hearts & Homes charitable campaign! Throughout the month of December, Community Financial will donate up to $40,000* to local nonprofit organizations that provide heat, food, shelter and clothing to Michigan families in need.

During the winter months, cold weather puts extra strain on families, some of whom are forced to choose between paying utilities and putting food on the table. Not only that, but COVID-19 has put strain on many households as well, which means this may be the hardest winter yet. Community Financial remains dedicated to supporting the fight against cold and hunger in Michigan each winter.
