PLYMOUTH, Mich., Dec. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Community Financial Credit Union is announcing the return of their special Warming Hearts & Homes charitable program for the 2013 holiday season. Throughout December, Community Financial is donating up to $30,000 to local nonprofit organizations instrumental in providing heat, food and clothing for families in their communities.
According to Sarah Cousineau, Marketing Manager at Community Financial, "We will donate up to $10,000 each week to charitable organizations. The best part about this campaign is that you just have to use your computer or smart phone, and we do all the donating!"
There are three ways to contribute to Community Financial's Warming Hearts & Homes program. Participants can visit the credit union's Facebook Page at https://www.facebook.com/CommunityFinancial. For every new Like on the timeline, Community Financial will donate $25 to the active charity of the week. Participants can also use #CFCUwarms in a tweet to Community Financial. Every tweet using that hashtag will ensure $25 more to each charity. Lastly, Community Financial is donating another $25 for each text they receive. Participants can text CFCUwarms to 70 000.
"The charity receiving donations will change from week to week," Cousineau said. "It's important to stay active the entire month of December to ensure each charity gets to the $10,000 limit."
From December 1 - 7, funds raised will be given to The Heat and Warmth Fund (THAW). THAW helps cover the cost of home heating for families who can't meet these bills. During Week 2 from December 8-14, Community Financial will contribute to local food pantries. For Week 3, ending on December 21, Community Financial will donate to The Salvation Army's "Coats for Kids" program.
Community Financial invites everyone to participate, members and non-members, in this year's Warming Hearts & Homes campaign. Participation from the community means needed funds will be donated to help warm hearts and homes in the area.
