The 3rd place winner, Live Like Max, received a $1,500 donation.

On Feb. 2, staff participated in a dress down day, donated non-perishable items and distributed them to local food pantries.

The credit union partnered with Together We Rise to help local foster children by building bikes and decorating birthday boxes that will be delivered to the Foster Closet of Michigan and local foster children. They also partnered with the Novi High School Robotics team to help build 39 3D prosthetic hands for children. Additionally, staff made blankets that were donated to Otsego United Way, The Atlanta Caring Place and Starfish Family Services.

“Community Financial lives the credit union’s mission of people helping people,” said Natalie McLaughlin, community financial manager/community relations at Community Financial. “During our Blue and Black Gives Back initiative, we are able to connect the team to our communities. Giving our team time to help others with projects and donations allows them to give back in powerful ways.”
