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.

Otsego County Child Welfare Alliance provides items to keep our youngest members of our community safe. They provide education to the parents on how to keep their babies safe.
If needed they provide pack n plays for the babies to sleep safely. Plug covers, drawer latches, CO2 monitors, sleep blankets, car seats, whatever it takes to keep our newest members safe. OCCWA is a small group with the biggest hearts when it comes to the babies and children of Otsego county. But they need help to continue their great work.

If Liberty Middle School received the gift of sharing we could put it towards our PBIS program. A successful PBIS program (Positive Behavior Intervention and Support) approach allows the school create an environment of respectability, responsibility, achievement and ownership among the students. This monetary reward could be used towards student reward incentives, school wide positive statement posters and activities throughout the year. The activities and incentives also Correlates to the School Improvement Plan by addressing discipline behaviors in relation to our PBIS plan.
Achieve Charter Academy 2nd Grade
Posted By: Tiffany Gartner (June 2, 2017)
At ACA, we strive everyday to provide our students with high quality education. I am hoping to provide more technology for our 2nd graders to use on a daily basis to engage and educate. Our struggling students need every intervention possible to help them grow. Our students who are exceling also deserve the opportunity to grow and learn new things that may not be included in our whole group curriculum. During small group time, each student has the opportunity to utilize things like technology, games and manipulatives to further along their skill set no matter what level they are at. These tools are crucial to access materials that we do not have in our own school and utilize the internet and educational apps. I am very thankful that organizations like yours are donating resources for our students' benefit. Thank you so very much!

I am the EL Coordinator/Teacher at ACA. We work with students that speak other languages. There is over 33 languages spoken at ACA! We help students learn English and apply it to what they are learning in the classroom. We would love to use $1,000 to purchase I-pads for our EL students. There are so many apps and games that help to enhance learning English and make it fun!
Lewiston 50 Plus Club
Posted By: Janice Burtch (June 2, 2017)
The Lewiston 50 Plus Club, our local senior center, is in need of a new boiler and hot water system. This donation would be earmarked specifically for the purchase of equipment only. We have held fundraisers for labor charges and have the funds to pay that portion.
Our building is aging, and the boiler we have now is approximately 35 years old. The system doesn't support the size of the building, is not energy efficient, and is difficult to repair because of its age.
We provide a variety of services to the public and our members, including cards, bingo, congregate meals thru MCCOA, a reading library, arts and crafts, and medical equipment. There is never a charge for the library or medical equipment.
Due to energy costs, we are unable to use the club as much as we can, this system will allow more use for less money.
