During our I Love Saving campaign in February, we were thrilled to receive many outstanding entries for our Facebook “I Love Saving Photo Contest.” There were many fantastic entries highlighting savings goals to pay off debt, travel, home ownership and start an education fund.
We are excited to announce the $5,000 grand prize winner, Catherine Santana. She has been a customer of the bank for the past nine years and is currently stationed in Hawaii with her husband, who is a member of the Armed Forces.
In her entry, she said:
“Being an Army wife one learns quickly saving is crucial. Being batted around the country lends itself to excessive bills as well as ridiculous cost of living…. I have learned saving is crucial especially in a world like ours. I want to win this money for my husband and I to help assuage our finances.”
We spoke with her earlier this week, and she expressed a great deal of excitement upon learning she was our winner.
“This is going to help us so much,” she said.
They have been in Hawaii for the last year, and her husband is currently pursuing specific military training on Oahu.
We want to thank all the participants. It is great to see that so many people are setting and working towards meeting their financial goals. We are especially delighted that with this award, Mrs. Santana is closer to meeting her savings goals.
