PLYMOUTH, Mich., Dec. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Michigan residents will continue to have the chance to assist Community Financial Credit Union "Warming Hearts & Homes" through the end of the year, the credit union announced today.

Launched on December 3, people are invited to use cell phone technology and social media to help make a difference for people in need this winter.

The program encourages people to:

  • Like Community Financial on Facebook at www.LikeCFCU.org
  • Tweet Community Financial using "#CFCUWarms" or
  • Text "CFCUwarms" to 70 000 on their cell phone.

For each Like, Tweet or Text, Community Financial will donate $25 to the nonprofits, up to $10,000 each.

Community Financial has earmarked $30,000 to contribute to local non-profit organizations through the campaign – and there is still money left to donate.

"The response from the community has been outstanding, but we still have some funds remaining to support these amazing charities and we encourage everyone to help us give it away," said Bill Lawton, Community Financial president/CEO.
