Judith Arceneaux was the big winner of the “There’s No Place Like DuGood” campaign put on by her credit union, the $235 million, 27,600-member DuPont Goodrich FCU in Beaumont, Texas.
Members who financed any loan for any amount from May to July received a chance to win one of three “green” prizes. For her efforts, Arceneaux won a new eco-friendly car. Other prizes were a $2,500 energy-efficient appliance package, and Herman Fontenot, who took home $500 in green in the form of cash, the credit union said.
Green initiatives have been in place at the Gulf Coast credit union since last year including promoting e-statements, bill pay and other paperless services, as well as sponsoring a shred day and participating in beach and community cleanup efforts.
