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 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. To help build stronger communities, we are reaching out to our neighbors and asking for your help.
"What GOOD could you do with $1,000?"
Which charity, community organization, or school group could use some extra funds? In total, we will be donating $60,000 this summer! That's $1,000 a day every Monday – Friday from June 10, 2019 – August 30, 2019.
Michigan Philharmonic Youth Orchestra
Posted By: Beth Stewart (July 15, 2019)
The Michigan Philharmonic Youth Orchestra is a musical "home" for 130 students ages 8-18 who want to learn and perform classical music. With five different ensembles,this program provides students the opportunity to study with a professional conductor, give three concerts of their own each year as well as perform with the Michigan Philharmonic twice each season. No other youth orchestra program offers the same amount of professional performance opportunities. While there is a nominal tuition, no student is ever turned away because their family can't afford the tuition. A $1000 award from the Summer of Sharing would help establish a scholarship for students who need tuition assistance.

FISH Inc. Oscoda is a 501 (c) (3) organization which assists the needy in our community with food, utility bills, gasoline, medical assistance, etc. We partner with Iosco Cares and last year we provided paper products, hygiene products, back packs, food, etc for families in need prior to the start of the school year. We "stuffed stockings" for the shut ins in Iosco County at Christmas time with toilet paper, Kleenex, shampoo, soap, tooth brushes and tooth paste,dish soap, hygiene products etc. to those who receive meals on wheels. We partner with a variety of organizations attempting to help the poor achieve a bridge out of poverty. In order to continue our mission in Iosco County, carrying out such projects again this year, financial help would be greatly appreciated.

Catholic Charities of Southeast Michigan (CCSEM) operates seven programs through 14 office locations within Oakland, Wayne, Macomb, Lapeer, St Clair & Monroe Counties. Programs include: Adoption, Foster Care, Supervised Independent Living; Adult Day Health Services; All Saints Soup Kitchen and Food Pantry; Hispanic Outreach Services, Mental Health and Substance Abuse Counseling; Project Hope; and Senior Volunteer Services
Our Foster Care program currently has 83 children placed in loving homes. Each summer we work to assure our children have the opportunity for fun experiences with their families. We host a one- day picnic and try to provide some gift cards for the Detroit Zoo and movie passes. The Foster Care program is hosting a day at Red Oaks Water Park in Madison Heights on July 19th which will bring together 70-80 foster children and parents. Your contribution would go a long way to help underwrite these costs.
