Bowater Employees Credit Union member Cynthia Humes, has won $1,000 from Bowater Credit Union to her favorite non-profit, Family Cornerstones.

Bowater Credit Union has asked its members to nominate their favorite non-profit helping people in the counties eligible for credit union membership: Bradley, McMinn, Meigs, Monroe, and Polk.  Family Cornerstones is the second winner of 2016.

Family Cornerstone’s mission “is to provide knowledge and skills to parents, youth and children to thrive as a strong family,” wrote Humes.  “By strengthening families, the schools, churches and community in turn are strengthened.”

To learn more to make your own contribution to Family Cornerstones, visit familycornerstons.org or call (423) 559-1112.

The Pay It Forward program will continue through 2016, and that means any member of Bowater Credit Union can nominate their favorite non-profit for a $1,000 Pay It Forward prize.  Three more prizes will be given out in 2016.  For more information, visit www.bowaterecu.org and look under “News & Info”.

Bowater Credit Union began the Pay It Forward program in 2010 as a way to give back to the community it serves.  Since the program’s inception, Bowater Credit Union has given $30,000 to various charities making a difference in our community. 

Bowater Employees Credit Union is a federally insured credit union offering savings, checking, loans, and financial education to those who live, work, or go to school in the counties of Bradley, McMinn, Meigs, Monroe, and Polk.  They have five branches, over 17,000 members, and $148 million in assets.  To learn more about Bowater Employees Credit Union and its services, call (423) 336-7268 or visit www.bowaterecu.org.
