Summer of Sharing Campaign
Community Financial is proud to present our 6th Annual “Summer of Sharing” campaign. It’s our way of saying “thanks” to the neighbors who have helped us, and our communities, grow during the past 65 years. We've donated $303,600 to groups you've nominated over the past 5 years and we're ready to donate $65,000 more!
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?

In honor of our 65th Anniversary, we will be donating $65,000 this summer! That's $1,000 a day every Monday – Friday from June 6 – September 2, 2016.
Hillman United Methodist Church

Hillman United Methodist Church in will once again host a "Back to School Bash", which is open to everyone in the community, regardless of any or no religious affiliation. Students will receive a wide variety of school supplies to help them head back to the classroom better equipped with some of the necessities required to help them learn. Many families in and around Hillman do not always have the resources to adequately provide for their children's school needs. Additionally, the afternoon event offers a free hot dog lunch for all attending, a free haircut for students, a selection of personal hygiene products to take home, and games and fun for all.
This $1,000. would help insure that school supplies are available to any child coming to the "Bash" at our church.

At New Life Pregnancy Resource Center we offer hope. We offer love. And we offer acceptance. Itís not easy being a single mom or single dad, or raising your grandchildren. We offer help for people in these roles. Our goal is to equip all who come through our doors to succeed in their choice for LIFE. All of our services offer a hand up, not a hand out. Clients are participants in our programs such as Sowing Seeds (a one-on-one mentoring program), New Shoots (for first-time moms to be and moms with children up to the age of 1) and Deep Roots (for moms with children over age 1). By giving a hand up, our clients become responsible parents and citizens who raise responsible children. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit ministry. Please consider us. $1,000 would help us to meet the needs of our clients.

The Warren CERT team is a 100% volunteer entity that derives no monies from the City of Warren. CERT was created to provide emergency response as well as disaster preparedness training to Warren residents and surrounding communities. We also provide secondary response to backup our Police and Firefighters as needed. During the floods of 2014 CERT was tasked with opening and maintaining an emergency shelter for stranded motorists. We recently co-hosted an event with Macomb County Food Bank where we handed out emergency weather radios to elderly and home bound residents. CERT averages 4500 volunteer hours a year in service to our residents. We would use the donation to buy safety and emergency equipment for our members. CERT has been awarded many times by the Warren Police & Fire Depts, the Firefighters union, as well as the mayor's office. Thank you for your consideration.
Educational Excellence Foundation - P-CEP Robotics

Look Mom, a robot! Many times I heard those words because it was a constant theme that whenever we would venture out to a community event, the Plymouth Canton Robotics team would be demonstrating and providing activity stations to educate and peak the interests of the young and old.
Jump forward to Spring 2015 when my daughter would drive a robot,tossing balls to her classmates who were seated in a filled auditorium at her elementary school. Each spring, the team visits the district's elementary schools, enlightening young minds.
Last year, my son joined the team's programming group and spend his 1st year reprogramming an older robot as a part of a larger transition to a new programming language the team will be using in the upcoming year. This new skill plus new outreach skills benefit him. Benefits to team members and the community are multi-layered and intensive, hence my nomination. Thank-you
Waza Track Club
Posted By: Doug McDowell (July 25, 2016)
Waza TC brings together athletes and their families from throughout Southeast Michigan. While centered in Novi and Farmington Hills, we have trained athletes from Belleville to Flushing and from Ann Arbor to Highland Park.
Our program is athlete centered. We focus on inspiring each athlete to find their most competitive events, and then reach their maximum potential. We encourage leadership, community service and academic achievement. Our athletes grow and develop into great citizens in their schools and local communities, often inspiring our coaching staff with their achievements.
While some of our families are well-to-do, others are making it work. We fund-raise to help our families offset club related expenses. This year we are travelling to Houston for the Junior Olympics track meet. Funds raised will be used to offset lodging costs.
Thank you for your consideration. And thanks Waza kids and families for your great stories!
