Community Financial Celebrates 10 Years of
Warming Hearts & Homes in Michigan

PLYMOUTH, Mich. (December 3, 2021) – Community Financial Credit Union celebrates 10 years of its annual charitable giving campaign, Warming Hearts & Homes. To commemorate this milestone, Community Financial will be donating up to $50,000 this December to local nonprofit organizations.

Warming Hearts & Homes began in 2011 to provide heat, food, and clothing to Michigan families each winter. During this campaign, Community Financial makes it easy for members of the community to get involved in helping nonprofits. For every like, comment, and interaction Community Financial receives on its Warming Hearts & Homes social media posts in December, as well as texts of “Warm” to (877) 937-2328, the credit union will donate $25 to select organizations in Michigan.

This year, donations of up to $10,000 each will be awarded to Community Financial’s charitable partners: THAW (The Heat and Warmth Fund), Habitat for Humanity, Salvation Army Coats for Kids, Forgotten Harvest, and the Food Bank of Eastern MI. As part of the 10-year celebration, Community Financial is adding a fifth week of charitable giving to spotlight local homeless shelters in the area as well: Samaritas Family Center, The Hope Warming Center, The Refuge, The Patriot Place, and Hope Shores Alliance. Each of these nonprofits help low-income families receive necessities such as heat, food, housing, and clothing throughout the winter season.

“Each year the Warming Hearts & Homes campaign gives us an opportunity to make a real difference in the community. As we celebrate 10 years of the campaign, we are excited to raise donations by an additional $10,000, for a grand total of $50,000, in order to help even more families,” explains Manager/Community Relations, Natalie McLaughlin. “With something as simple as a social media interaction or text, community members can take an active part in helping fellow Michigan families to stay warm and safe this winter.”
