GAYLORD, Mich., Oct. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Early this summer, Community Financial Credit Union asked its members "What GOOD could you do with $1,000?" and received many inspiring answers. This year's Summer of Sharing program made dreams come true for 20 nonprofit community organizations in northern Michigan, providing help and hope for local residents and improving the quality of life in communities served by Community Financial.
This is the third year Community Financial has conducted Summer of Sharing, which provides one grant of $1,000 each day for 60 days to nonprofit organizations in its service areas. Since the program began in 2011, Community Financial has donated more than $180,000 to groups that help people of all ages improve their lives. Community Financial members are asked to nominate local organizations for the $1,000 grants.
"Our members are actively involved in the community and we want to support the charities that are important to them," said Bill Lawton, Community Financial president and CEO. Community Financial is committed to donating time and money in the areas where it serves members in southeastern and northern Michigan.
One example is the Atlanta UCC Baby Basket, which collects and distributes baby clothes, furniture and supplies for low-income pregnant women and mothers. Additional northern Michigan nonprofit programs that received awards include:
