Community Financial Awards $1,000 to Otsego County Child Welfare Alliance through Summer of Sharing Campaign
GAYLORD, Mich. (July 23, 2013) – Community Financial Credit Union is proud to announce that Otsego County Child Welfare Alliance, a northern Michigan non-profit, is a recent recipient of a $1,000 donation through the third annual “Summer of Sharing” program.
The Otsego County Child Welfare Alliance, a charity that serves children and their families, is the only county organization providing car seats, lice removal kits and home safety kits. With high demand for these items, plus recent budget cuts, aid is critical.
“We’re excited,” said Teresa Cherry, the group’s treasurer. “This is a life saver and is going to allow us to continue our program without having to cut services. We want to thank Community Financial for supporting our causes and the community.”
Community Financial is donating $1,000 every Monday through Friday until August 30, 2013, to non-profit organizations nominated during the Summer of Sharing campaign. Nominations can be made at www.SummerofSharing.org.
“We’re a community credit union and we feel it’s important for the local community to have a say in which organizations receive a donation,” said Bill Lawton, Community Financial Credit Union President/CEO. “Our members are actively involved in the community and we want to support the charities that are important to them.”
Summer of Sharing was first launched in 2011 to help celebrate Community Financial’s 60th anniversary. The popular program is now in its third year.
