Community Financial Asks Community to Award $25,000 with “Thumbs Up For Charity!”
Community Financial Credit Union is providing local residents the chance to give a “Thumbs Up” and $25,000 to their favorite charitable organizations through its “Thumbs Up for Charity!” program.
Community Financial is accepting nominations from people in the communities it serves, explaining which local organizations should be recognized for the good work they do. Nominations are being accepted here through March 31.
Five finalists will be chosen from the nominations and the community will vote on who should receive the top donation of $10,000. The charities that finish in second and third place will receive $5,000 each, and the fourth and fifth place finalists will each receive $2,500. Voting will begin April 10, with winners being announced on April 26.
“Non-profit organizations in our communities are working hard to meet the basic needs we all have,” said Community Financial Community Relations Manager Natalie McLaughlin. “The residents of our communities work alongside them every day, so “Thumbs Up for Charity!” gives them the opportunity to tell us which groups they think deserve recognition.”
This is Community Financial’s fourth annual “Thumbs Up for Charity!” program. The program has granted $75,000 to local organizations since it started in 2014.
