Chief Financial gave back in a big way during the holidays

Rochester Hills, MI - All year, Chief Financial Credit Union prepares for the big one: The holiday giving season.

Team members donate in preparation for the holiday giving blitz, raising money through various events and activities, like the weekly "Jean Day," where team members get to dress down in exchange for a donation. And in 2020, three of the Chief Financial Credit Union branches were able to donate to three local Michigan nonprofit organizations.

Chief's Pontiac team partnered with HAVEN, donating gift cards. Chief's Rochester team collected money for Neighborhood House, as a part of its annual Adopt-A-Family holiday toy drive. And Chief's Birmingham branch donated a check to a local non-profit called Wish Upon a Teen.

"Every holiday season we love to give back, but this year especially, it means so much to be able to help our community in such a big way," said Chief's President and CEO Tom Dluzen. "It's been a hard year for many folks and it is an honor to see our team joining together to give back."

Wish Upon a Teen is a Southfield-based non-profit dedicated to providing resources, time and opportunities to teenagers with severe life-limiting medical conditions. Through creative, social, and educational opportunities, our goal is to normalize their environment and rebuild their self-esteem as they transition to adulthood.

HAVEN is Oakland County's only comprehensive program for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault, providing shelter, counseling, advocacy and educational programming.

Neighborhood House offers assistance in several ways to members of the Rochester community, such as a food pantry, clothes closet, financial assistance, educational services and more.

Chief Financial Credit Union is committed to empowering financial success and inspiring creative philanthropy throughout each community it serves. Chief Financial has been meeting the needs of its members since 1941 with branch locations in Birmingham, Dearborn, Pontiac and Rochester Hills, Michigan.
