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.

St. John Neumann St. Vincent de Paul

Posted By: Daniel Kessel (June 4, 2019)
We are a Conference of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, a human welfare and relief organization. We serve those in need regardless of race, creed or religious affiliation. We helped 707 individuals in 2018 with varying forms of aid and support. We are an all volunteer organization serving western Wayne County . Ninety-three percent (93%) of funds are used for direct assistance. We average approx. 23 calls/month from those seeking our assistance. Our chief expenditures are for shelter. Shelter continues to be a primary need at 58% of our expenses. Other costs are 9.5% for utility bills, 6.8% for household and 6% for automobile costs. Our membership grew from 12 in 2011 to 30 at present and we have won two awards for excellence in 2013 & 2014. We thank you for your consideration.

The Lewiston 50 + Club is located in Lewiston, MI, and is Lewiston's Senior Center. However, as the name states, members are welcome at 50! Dues are $10.00 per year, and are due in June to have voting rights! Meals thru MCCOA are served 4 days a week, as well as various fundraisers, including bingo, euchre and euchre tournaments, and exercise aerobics. The 50 + Club has other programs including TFAP, 40 Pounders, etc. A member benefit is reduced specials at local favorite restaurants. Current building maintenance needs are ceiling tiles and flooring. The Lewiston 50 + Club would definitely benefit from a $1000 donation from Community Financial.

SOS (Shelly Olree's Shelter)

Posted By: Patricia Garrett (June 4, 2019)
The SOS (Shelly Olree's Shelter) is a non-profit 501c3 rescue that offers shelter and hope for homeless cats and kittens. Mission - Making a difference, one animal at a time! Realizing they cannot save them all but to the ones they do save, They ARE making that difference.
SOS was conceived in 2008 when it housed 19 cats and kittens that needed homes, had them spayed and neutered and then proceeded to successfully re-home them all. In 2015, they built a brand new building, meant to be a shelter! Through blood, sweat and tears, designed, built, pounded nails, painted, painted, and painted some more, a state of the art shelter for the all the homeless cats and kittens that need us. Their supplies of food, litter and cleaning goods for the SOS shelter would benefit greatly from the extra funds donated from Community Financial
