WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – A lucky member of Truliant FCU will get to skip mortgage payments for a year courtesy of their credit union.

The credit union has joined with local TV station FOX8 (WGHP) to launch the “Mortgage for a Year” lottery, in which a winner from the Triad area will have his or her monthly mortgage payments paid for a year by Truliant.

“At Truliant, we know that owning your own home is one of the greatest joys in life, as long as you can afford it,” said Marc Schaefer, president of the $1.6 billion credit union. “We know people have struggled and could use some help paying their mortgage. So, we are offering to pay the winner’s mortgage for one year, and hope that they will use this extra money to help build a stronger financial foundation for their future.”

To enter, members need to go to the “Pay My Mortgage or Rent for a Year” links on the FOX8 and Truliant’s Facebook pages and “like” both. Participants can gain extra entries by sharing and posting the link on their own Facebook page. For every four friends they get to enter through the contest link posted on their Facebook page, they will gain another entry.
