Dracut woman among winners of Jeanne D’Arc contest to help with heating costs


LOWELL — As a continuation of its Small Acts That Give Back initiative, Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union recently held a campaign that earned four lucky members assistance with paying their heating costs incurred during this past winter.

Pamela Murphy of Dracut was one of the winners of the Pay Your Heating Bill campaign.

“Since I’m a single parent, and each month I spend more than I have, this helped me tremendously,” said Murphy, who won the fourth and final week of the contest. “I will actually have some extra money for other things, which is something I’m not used to at all. By having these contests, it shows that Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union understands the current economy and understands that people live paycheck to paycheck.”
