2022 Grand Prize Winner Announced
With absolute shock in her eyes, “What? Are you kidding?” was the first thing Garfield managed to say as she looked at the check presented to her. Garfield has been a member of Neighborhood Credit Union since September 2013.
When asked if she had any ideas of what to do with the winnings, she shared that she and her husband had recently started a charitable fund for their family. They will utilize the fund to donate to charities they are passionate about throughout the year, so the Prize Savings Account grand prize money will be an exceptional starter for their fund. Garfield was very gracious and so excited, mentioning that she will keep Neighborhood CU updated with what charitable deeds they do with their fund over the years.
“We just funded our charity less than two weeks ago. My husband and I are going to access it throughout the year to make charitable donations,” said Garfield. “In October we will have an all-family meeting, and that is when everyone will have an opportunity to get involved and pick a charity of their choice to donate with the remaining funds. This $49,999.99 will be a great contribution to our cause!”
“This is our 15th grand prize giveaway since the launch of our Prize Savings account and it’s always one of the highlights of our year! Our goal is to provide an avenue that encourages better savings habits and leads to the financial security our members deserve,” said Senior Vice President of Retail and Business Development, Francis Santana. “We keep the concept simple to ensure everyone can take advantage of our program, and we add a fun factor with our giveaways. We are proud of the meaningful impact Prize Savings is making in our members’ lives, and we hope to keep building on that.”
