austins-florist-smallUnited Financial Credit Union and Stretch Limo joined together to run a special contest in October. They asked the public for nominations of individuals, teams, businesses, or anyone that they felt deserved to be “Paid Forward” for going above & beyond and why. They received a lot of great entries. Eight entries were chosen around the Great Lakes Bay Region to “Pay It Forward”.

On Friday, November 18th, United Financial & Stretch Limo took a limo bus out on the road to surprise the winners with special gifts and treats, letting them know that they were appreciated, along with the nomination entry on why they were nominated. “Words cannot begin to express how it felt to go out and make everyone’s day. They were all very friendly & thankful for everything that we did for them, it was very obvious on why they were nominated.” said Brianne Fournier, Marketing at United Financial Credit Union. The winners were the Support Staff at Bullock Creek Elementary, Donna Schantz at St. Charles High School, Austin’s Florist in Freeland, Pet Angel Adoption and Rescue in Frankenmuth, Covenant Day Care staff, Jenny Dumont from A Place for Grace Child Care in Saginaw, the bus drivers from Bay City Public Schools, and the staff at Ambassador Apartments in Saginaw. Stayed tuned for more “Pay It Forward” contests with United Financial Credit Union & Stretch Limo.
