FLINT, MI – Financial Plus Credit Union is bringing back their award winning FPCU Love’s Teachers Classroom Giveaway. They want to provide two deserving and hardworking teachers, one in Genesee County and one in Saginaw County, with a classroom makeover worth $1,500 each! This one-of-a kind opportunity will help enhance and improve the winning teachers’ classroom. In 2018, Financial Plus received the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Community Service Award through this initiative.

 

“Teachers play such a critical role in the development of our future generation. We’re inspired by their dedication and passion and wanted to find a way to give back to them. When we came up with the classroom makeover, we were so overwhelmed with the response and stories we received and decided to extend it into Genesee County as well,” remarked Michelle Thompson, Area Branch Manager of Financial Plus Credit Union.

 

The submission period is open now through Thursday, April 11th. You can nominate a deserving teacher by submitting their name, school, and why they deserve to win at myfpcu.com. Following the entry period, there will be a voting period for the top 5 nominated teachers in Genesee County and Saginaw County. Voting will also take place at myfpcu.com.
