The families were selected from a pool of 100 applicants to receive the homes. Dort put together an outside selection committee to review the applications and select two recipients (Michigan Monitor Jan. 4). The Mt. Morris Township home was awarded to Rockie Hartley of Flint and her two children. The newly painted home had new flooring, appliances and furnace. The house came with a dining set and household items including rugs, towels and small kitchen appliances. Candice Garner of Division and her four children received a home in Flint Township. The house had new paint, flooring, appliances and updated bathrooms. Garner also received a new sofa, dining set, and several kitchen and bathroom items. Dort FCU renovated both homes and updated them to code before giving them to the families. The families took possession of the homes Jan. 4. “Candice and Rockie are hardworking moms making a difference for their kids and we can’t wait to see how they make these homes their own in 2010,” said Jenny Ludwigsen, Dort FCU director of marketing. The giveaway received media coverage, said the league. Dort FCU has $405 million in assets.
