Pay It Forward's Grand Prize Winner Announced

TOPEKA, Kansas – The Educational Credit Union announced Monday that Kathy Schlotterbeck is our winner of the Pay it Forward promotion.

Kathy will receive $500 cash and $500 for CAART’s Pet Food Pantry, her charity of choice. ECU, located at 2808 SW Arrowhead Rd., will present the winnings on Tuesday, Nov. 3rd, at 1 p.m to Kathy and Julie Castenada, director of CAART’s Pet Food Pantry.

CAART, Capital Area Animal Response Team, assists those who have animals but cannot afford to feed them through its Pet Food Pantry. To date they have handed out over 22,800 pounds of pet food.

Pay it Forward was a promotion conducted by ECU. During International Credit Union week, Oct. 13th – 16th, Educational Credit Union asked the Topeka community, “If Educational Credit Union gave you $20 to Pay it Forward. What would you do?”

ECU videotaped their answers and posted them on YouTube for the community to vote on. (
