SUMMER OF SHARING
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 everything we do. We know that Community Financial would not exist without our members and the communities in which they live.
2020 has been a year of unprecedented firsts. And while many things have changed and our summer activities may not be the same this year, Community Financial remains committed to helping the communities we serve.

Do You See Us Now?

When a dear friend of mine was killed in a motorcycle accident, my friend-who happens to be a paramedic, joined forces and in less than a year, created this charitable event to aid victims of distracted driving accidents. Our first year we had over 200 participants and raised over $8000 to help a beautiful family and aid financially a program designed to educate drivers to Look Twice.
We have our 2nd annual charity ride July 25th and we are taking it across the Mackinaw Bridge this year! Bigger and better than the last!!
We would be so honored to be a recipient of the Summer of Caring program and put that donation to excellent use in our communities helping helping out neighbors. Thank you, CFCU!
Atlanta Community Schools
Posted By: Ashley Klee (June 1, 2020)
My name is Ashley Klee and I am the elementary special education teacher at Atlanta Community Schools. I am looking into purchasing a reading program that is geared towards students with autism. I currently do not have a reading program that will benefit their learning style and this program is proven to help students with autism. I would also purchase sensory materials to help students with their sensory needs. The reading program is called Edmark and is research-based which is very important in education. This program is not only geared toward students with autism but students with learning disabilities as well. The purchase of this program would benefit many of my students and help them become successful readers.
National Honor Society-Atlanta
Posted By: Ashley Klee (June 1, 2020)
My name is Ashley Klee and this was my first year as the National Honor Society (NHS) advisor for the Atlanta Chapter. When I came into this position our funding account was extremely low. The members and I worked together to come up with some fundraising ideas. Due to COVID-19, we were unable to do some of the fundraisers that we had planned. Our organization is expected to pay for stoles and cords for our members that are graduating, annual dues, and the whole initiation ceremony. This year we had 11 members and 8 of those members graduated. Fundraising will require more work for my remaining members until initiation.
$1,000 will help our organization get on its feet and take a little stress off of us.
The NOAH Project Detroit
Posted By: Dyane Townley (June 1, 2020)
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the NOAH Project has continued to serve lunches, supply hygiene/health products, and provide basic social services to clients, most of whom are Detroit's chronically homeless. In this time of uncertainty for so many, NOAH provides much needed continuity of care to some of Detroit's most vulnerable and often overlooked citizens.
$1,000 would help purchase fresh produce to make lunches as healthy as possible, medical supplies for ailing or injured clients, and ponchos for rainy days as the community center cannot be fully open for clients to rest indoors due to social distancing needs.
American Association of University Women, Northville-Novi
Posted By: Susan Schanne (June 1, 2020)
Like so many other organizations, the Coronavirus has severely impacted our ability to raise funds needed to promote education and opportunity for women and girls in our community, who need help more than ever. Our major fundraiser for this year has been cancelled for safety reasons, yet we are still committed to providing scholarships to high school and college students. This award will allow us to upgrade and maintain our website and other technology tools so we can remotely work to support branch activities and fundraising efforts, and reach those in our community who share our goals. With this award, we can purchase Zoom, which would allow us to continue to meet with branch members and committee members, and make improvements to our website. Money we don't spend on these technology tools will allow us to best support others in our community. Thank you for your consideration.
