WHAT: The beginning of 2024 is about to get sweeter for one long-time Neighborhood Credit Union member! Karyn Marshall, who has been a member since 2009, and now lives in Tallahassee, was selected as this year’s Prize Savings Account winner, and will be surprised this Friday, January 19th on a virtual call in Neighborhood Credit Union’s Corporate boardroom with a check for $49,999 as a reward for her good savings habits.
Marshall’s name was drawn earlier in the month from all the credit union’s Prize Savings Account holders. Since 2007, Neighborhood Credit Union has offered the Prize Savings Account as an innovative approach to help reverse the low savings rate across the nation. Neighborhood Credit Union created the Prize Savings Account as a fun way to encourage members to save money and provide prizes and rewards so they could have an immediate and tangible way to see how good savings habits can reap unexpected rewards.
How the Prize Savings Account works: Neighborhood Credit Union members receive one drawing entry for every $25 monthly average balance in their Prize Savings Accounts. The greater the savings, the more chances a member has of winning. Members are eligible for weekly drawings, culminating with the annual grand prize, drawn each January based on the average monthly balance in the savings account at close of business December 31.
Media are invited to join us for the surprise on January 19 at 10 a.m. CST to capture b-roll of the winner being surprised with the announcement over a virtual call. Interviews with the winner will be available virtually and the Neighborhood Credit Union team members will be available onsite.
This year’s virtual award presentation ceremony is unique, as winners typically live in Texas and can come in person. However, Ms. Marshall’s win is a testament to the enduring relationship that Neighborhood Credit Union shares with its members, regardless of their location. Part of the Neighborhood Credit Union mission is to foster a sense of unity and shared success among its members, and the credit union takes immense pride in the fact that its impact extends beyond state lines!
