What Good Could You Do with $1,000?

The season of summer brings warmth, flowers…and $1,000?  

Community Financial Credit Union is gearing up for another “Summer of Sharing.” Throughout the summer, beginning June 7, Community Financial will donate $1,000 each business day to a deserving non-profit.

Summer of Sharing, now in its third year, invites the community to nominate non-profit organizations that are doing exceptional work in their communities, by sharing a story that explains how $1,000 would help accomplish goals that in turn, help the community. 
Community Financial team members present a check for $1,000 to the Lighthouse Family Charity organization of  Michigan during last year's Summer of Sharing. 

“We are always happy to invite the community to tell us which organizations are doing great work and deserve additional financial support,” said Bill Lawton, Community Financial Credit Union president/CEO.  “It is part of our culture to give back to local communities and we are proud to bring ‘Summer of Sharing’ back once again.”

Since the inception of Summer of Sharing, Community Financial has donated over $120,000 to non-profits in the area and plans to donate an additional $60,000 this year.

“We know there are hundreds, if not thousands, of wonderful non-profits doing amazing work to make our communities great places to live,” Lawton said.  “We want to help celebrate and benefit them, but we need the communities’ help to let us know who they are.”

So, as you kick off the summer, think about a charitable organization that helps your community.  To nominate your favorite non-profit and to see who receives $1,000 each day, visit www.SummerOfSharing.org
