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.
Woman's Life Society Chapter 827, Chicks 4 Charity
Posted By: Tammy Brown (July 18, 2018)
Members of the Woman’s Life Society Chapter 827, also called “Chicks 4 Charity”, have been volunteering since 2009 in the greater Plymouth/Canton community. Members have done everything from providing funds for shelter animals, directly delivering homemade lunches to homeless people, making comfort blankets for hospitalized youth, to raising thousands of dollars in quarters at a single event for a program that helps culturally challenged residents speak English and overcome isolation in our community.
A service activity or fundraiser is hosted every month. Because of their hard work, they are one of the top Woman’s Life Society Chapters in the nation. In 8 years, Chicks have helped over 85 non-profit organizations. With much of the charity money coming out of their own pockets, they have raised over $210,000.
The Summer of Sharing Funds would greatly help their 9th anniversary fundraiser in September dedicated to providing help and hope for impoverished children.

Michigan Orphan Kitten Rescue specializes in providing care for orphaned or abandoned kittens ages newborn to four weeks old.
Imagine feeding new born kittens every 2-3 hours with a syringe or small bottle. Volunteers are needed around the clock. Supplies are needed to help keep these smallest and most fragile kittens alive. Check out some of the kitten photos here: https://www.facebook.com/pg/mikittens/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1658940644183152
Through July 8th they've had 86 kittens in their care. The total in 2017 was 80 kittens so they are working hard saving the kitties of Michigan. Adopt don't shop! These kittens are adorable.
MOKR has been certified by the Michigan Pet Fund Alliance which recognizes organizations that use the nationally-recognized No Kill Equation model to achieve the goal that no healthy or treatable animal is euthanized due to lack of shelter space or permanent home.
Otsego County Food Pantry
Posted By: Hailey Zack (July 18, 2018)
I have been volunteering at the food pantry for about 5 years, and I'm only 13 yrs old. The Food Pantry is such a great program to help those in need. My favorite thing about volunteering at the food pantry is the feeling I get inside when I know I helped someone in need. Being awarded this money would help to feed so many families in my communinty.
Michigan Elks Charitable Grant Fund
Posted By: Dennis R. White (July 18, 2018)
This Elks function provides special needs seniors with funds of $2,000.00 a year for up to 4 years to further their education after high school. They do not have to go to a university. They can attend a trade school or volcational school. This helps them to become valuable citizens of their community and gives them self respect as a citizen. By being awarded this opportunity they get a feeling they have never had before. People have mostly looked down on them and here is a program that says "Here we have confidence in your ability to succeed in life". We presently have 25 students most of which are living in Citizen Federals service area. Thank you for your consideration. Yes we are a 501c3 organization. Dennis R. White
