Eastern Eight Community Development Corporation recently recognized Northeast Community Credit Union for their support of Eastern Eight projects and initiatives.

Eastern Eight Director of Homeownership Services Mindy Bowman presented NCCU President/CEO Teresa Arnold with a plaque recognizing the credit union as an “outstanding financial partner” for their “dedication and commitment to Affordable Housing initiatives in Northeast Tennessee.”

NCCU recently sponsored and helped build a home through Eastern Eight’s Habitat for Humanity program. NCCU volunteers helped construct a home for a Navy veteran in Carter County.
