Thumbs Up for Charity!

Congratulations to Our Winners!

Community Financial Credit Union is pleased to announce the winners of our “Thumbs Up for Charity” program.  Throughout April 2019, we asked the community to nominate nonprofits that make an impact.  We then invited the public to vote for the five finalists.

First Place Winner- $10,000

Samaritas received the most votes and will receive the $10,000 grand prize! The Samaritas Family Center in Westland, MI has helped people in crisis since 1994 by providing food, shelter, and other critical support services. Over 350 homeless families annually receive the support needed to get back on their feet.  The Thumbs Up for Charity donation will help support childcare, meals, job counseling, resume assistance, relocation support, financial education, and on-site clinic access for physical and mental health. Learn more at
