Community Financial warms hearts and homes around Michigan


PLYMOUTH, Mich. – Community Financial Credit Union is kicking off another season of the Warming Hearts & Homes charitable campaign, donating up to $40,000 to local charities in December.

Each year for Warming Hearts & Homes, Community Financial challenges their communities to get social with the credit union. For every Facebook like, tweet or Instagram picture Community Financial receives, the credit union will donate $25 to select nonprofits in north and southeast Michigan. These nonprofits provide heat, food, housing and clothing to low-income families of Michigan.

This year, The Heat and Warmth Fund (THAW), local food pantries, Habitat for Humanity and The Salvation Army Coats for Kids Program will each receive a portion of $40,000 during the Warming Hearts & Homes campaign.

Surveys from Michigan residents illustrate the number of people forced to choose between paying for food and clothing or paying for utilities has increased over recent years. With the snow already falling for the 2014-2015 winter season, Community Financial’s Warming Hearts & Homes campaign will help make things easier for many families across Michigan.

“Sources all over Michigan are predicting our winter to be just as rough as last year’s,” Marketing Manager Sarah Cousineau said. “The harsh winters that are chilling all of us down to our bones prove that nonprofits whose mission is to keep many families safe and warm need our help.”

The entire Community Financial team is proud to support organizations that help fight hunger and provide warmth to Michigan’s families during the winter season.

“I’m proud to be a member and employee of a credit union that proactively seeks out ways to better our communities,” Cousineau said.
