Winners announced in ICU Day contest

NEWBURGH, IN (November 2, 2020) — To celebrate International Credit Union Day, and the theme of “Inspiring Hope,” Heritage Federal Credit Union held a contest for three lucky winners to receive a $1000 payment toward their HFCU loan. The winners have been selected and they are:

Jennifer Burton is a single mom that worked two jobs before the pandemic, and recently lost one of them due to changes resulting from the pandemic. Jennifer says that having $1,000 toward her loan will help her afford some extra things her family needs now.

Enzio Compton, Jr. was pulled from a job in the medical field due to a high risk condition and compromised immune system. Meanwhile, his fiancé’s car was totaled in an accident by someone that didn’t have insurance. He used some wedding money that was saved up to get her a car so that she could get to work. His plans of returning to his work in the medical field to cover the expenses did not pan out, due to physician orders related to avoiding exposure to the pandemic. $1,000 would help pay down more of the balance on the car and help them plan for the wedding.

Zachary Watson is a motivational speaker catering to education and entertainer and also a new father. While his wife is able to work, he has taken on the role of full-time dad as mass gatherings and school assemblies are restricted since the pandemic began. He says being able to knock off $1,000 from their mortgage would be a blessing.

David K. Milligan, CEO stated, “There were so many stories of our members that showed there is a great need for a hand up in our community. We are pleased to be able to help in this way and inspire some hope into the lives of these members.”

Heritage Federal Credit Union’s ICU Day Contest ran from October 16th – October 22nd. Members submitted an entry form on the website that asked the type of loan held and the questions, “How would $1,000 toward your loan help you?” and “Have you been economically impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic?” Qualifying loans included mortgages, home equity and improvement loans, auto and recreational vehicle loans, personal loans, and personal credit cards.
