Dort FCU to give away two homes for holiday season
GENESEE COUNTY, Mich. (11/7/08)--Dort FCU plans to give away two homes to needy families this holiday season. Every year, the $366.3 million asset, Flint, Mich.-based credit union’s board of directors tries to find ways to give back to the community, and this year it decided to help two needy families in a big way (The Flint Journal Nov. 5). The credit union is excited to help out in tough economic times by providing a ray of hope, Dort spokeswoman Jenny Ludwigsen, told the newspaper. The Flint-area homes--a 1,800 square-foot ranch and a 1,000 square-foot, three-bedroom house--are credit-union owned properties. The credit union is looking for families that have a need for housing, are capable of maintaining a home, and are enthusiastic about being a homeowner, Ludwigsen told the paper. Families must apply for the homes by Nov. 26. After local charitable organizations narrow the list of applicants to 10 finalists, the winners will be chosen in a drawing Dec. 22. The properties will be mortgage-free, but winners must complete home-ownership and financial classes through a local housing partnership.
