Wear Red for Heart Health
On February 5th, the CCF team went RED to support heart health because heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S. For every team member that dressed in red, CCF donated $5 to the American Heart Association, totaling $250.
National Pizza Day
February 9th was National Pizza Day and to celebrate CCF gave gift cards to 3 lucky winners. Fans commented on CCF’s Facebook post with their favorite local pizza place and pizza order. Then, we selected 3 winners at random and gave them a $30 gift card to their favorite pizza joint. Now we have dozens of new pizza places to try!
Scratch Off Member Fun
To show our members how much we love them, on Friday, February 12th each branch handed out 50 Valentine’s Day-themed $1 scratch off tickets. Every member who visited in branch or via drive-thru received a scratch off ticket. There were lucky winners at branch and our team loved ending the week on a fun note!
MCREST in Macomb County provides meals, lodging, life-skills training, housing assistance, job readiness training, and emergency shelter 365 days each year to Macomb County’s homeless population. CCF is proud to support them this month with a donation of $200. To read more about MCREST's mission visit their website.
Welcome Inn Day Center
Frigid temperatures and big snowstorms made February a very harsh month for the homeless and those without heat in their homes. The Welcome Inn Warming Center on 13 Mile Road is just a few blocks away from CCF’s Royal Oak branch, so we gathered baskets filled with hundreds of fleece-lined winter hats, socks of all sizes, warm mittens and packs of hot chocolate to keep visitors warm at the center.
