CU gives away new home
JACKSON, Miss. (9/9/10)--CP FCU, Jackson, Miss., gave away a home and changed the life of a local family. CP FCU announced that it would give a new home to Tina Greer Friday through its “Wish Upon a Home Giveaway” contest. Greer, who has five children, was chosen out of a group of four finalists after going through an interview process and completing a 17-page application (WILX.com Sept. 3). John Crist, CP president, said he was excited to change Greer’s life. He said the community has given the credit union “so much” and CP wanted to give back. Greer will move into the four-bedroom home in October. She has lived in a trailer park, and has struggled since losing her husband in a car accident and her job in 2006. After living in the home for five years, Greer will own the home and be responsible for property taxes, insurance and utilities. Greer now works for a realtor in Florida from her home. Her determination has caught the attention of her friends and family. Dan Good, Greer’s brother-in-law, told WILX that she is a “very strong woman.” CP FCU has $323 million in assets.
