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.
Our Summer of Sharing Program has concluded for 2018.
This summer we chose from 266 stories submitted on this site and awarded (60) $1,000 grants to organizations in Michigan! Click the See button to view the charities, community groups and school programs we were able to support this year.
Otsego County Food Pantry
Posted By: Robert Wright (June 1, 2018)
The mission of the Otsego County Food Pantry is to distribute emergency food to people who live or work in Otsego County that are faced with unexpected expenses, illnesses or loss of income.
In addition to the emergency food distribution, The Otsego County Food Pantry started the School Backpack program in 2014. This program sends a backpack of shelf-stable food home with at risk kindergarten through 6th grade students each weekend of the school. In the past school year, we provided nearly 300 backpacks to students every weekend. In 2016, the OCFP expanded its backpack program into the summer months. We provide nearly 100 students with a backpack of shelf-stable food from mid-June through late August.
A $1,000 donation would greatly help cover the cost of the summer program.
