Thank you again to everyone who participated in our contest. We reviewed all the entries, and were touched by the great stories we received. Please see our two winners and their submissions below:
Elaine J., our $250 Written Submission Winner
“[My Mission Fed Moment was] the day [the Mission Valley Branch] went out of their way to help me buy my 75-year-old Mom her first (and only) BRAND NEW CAR!!! Even the employees came out to the parking lot to watch the surprise. My brother drove her to [the branch], telling her I had a surprise for her...wish I had taken a picture to capture the moment! She was stunned and kept saying she did not believe it. My wonderful Mom enjoyed her new car and her story for 5 years. She passed away last year, still amazed that she had owned a BRAND NEW CAR!!! Now one of her grandsons has her car...we still call it ‘Nana’s car.’ Thank you MFCU, you all ROCK! You make dreams come true!”
And here is Elaine, pictured with her mother:
Erica Z., our $250 Photo Submission Winner
Here’s Erica’s caption and photo submission:
“I found Mission Fed when my son was born. My bank of 8 years decided my free checking was no longer free due to the loss of my direct deposit. Becoming a stay-at-home mom was a lifelong dream and Mission Fed embraced me, my family and my monthly balance.”
Thanks for choosing Mission Fed!
