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?
Nominations will begin on June 1, 2018.

Love Runs is a charity to help raise awareness and to help rescue/restore victims of sex/human trafficking. Michigan has become one of the highrest ranking states to deal with this darkness. It happens in our own backyards. We are free 1,440 minutes a day. Sex/human trafficking victims are enslaved 1,440 minutes a day. They don't have freedom. I have been running/walking for Love Runs for 3 years and am praying to raise $1,440 again this year. I would be so honored and humbled if CFCU considered Love Runs. Let's bring light to the darkness. Thank you for your consideration.

The Plymouth Community Council on Aging coordinates and operates programs and services which address the needs of senior citizens in the Plymouth and Plymouth Township Community. Too many seniors are alone and feel isolated as they age. The social activities offered at the PCCA are a wonderful resource for seniors to remain vibrate members of society. There is a variety of activities offered each month which include fitness programs, social events, movies, games and so much more.

More than 1,600 children under age 5 die every day from diarrhea caused by unsafe water ó thatís more than AIDS and malaria combined. Clean water, basic sanitation, and hygiene education are some of the most effective ways to prevent child disease and death.
World Vision is one of the largest providers of clean water in the developing world, reaching a new person with clean water every 30 seconds. Water continues to flow after we leave because communities have ownership of the water points and can maintain and repair them.

MSU Extension, Master Gardener Program, WIC Program

We have a small garden at the Wayne County Health Department building on VanBorn Rd. As the MSU Extension Master Gardener Coordinator for Wayne County, I'm responsible for this garden. The focus of the garden is to grow produce for clients of the Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program. Besides donating produce, we give tours of the garden, teaching WIC clients sound horticultural practices. Last year we donated 350 pounds of produce and in 2016 we donated 250 pounds to WIC clients.
The garden is also a learning environment for Extension Master Gardener Trainees who come and learn about raising vegetables.
Our program is in need of funds because our raised beds are started to show their age and need to be replaced. While replacing the beds, we will also be installing an irrigation system too.
Thanks for your consideration!
