On April 19, Spanish Coalition for Housing’s Gina Sala, housing counselor and Peoples Gas partnered to bring one lucky first-time homebuyer an Earth day worthy surprise.
Laura Campa and her father were surprised by Peoples Gas cheerful squad while the two of them were working on remodeling her newly acquired two flat multi-unit in the Pilsen community.
Ms. Campa worked with Spanish Coalition for Housing Pre-purchase and SCH Chicago Bilingual Landlord Association team to help her become mortgage ready and secure landlord certification and accomplish her dream of homeownership.
Laura and her father unexpectedly received a check for $500 from Peoples Gas to go towards making her home more energy efficient.
Laura Campa was selected among other first-time homebuyers due to her exceptional commitment to serving others while working on achieving her dreams of homeownership.
Ms. Campa currently serves on the board of directors for Chicago’s Oncology Nursing Society. Through her service to the Society, Mrs. Campa raises awareness, fundraising, and host events to continue education and support oncology nurses. She also participates in their community outreach committee that fosters opportunities for their members to interact, educate, and help people affected by cancer throughout the Chicago area.
It has become a tradition for SCH and Peoples Gas to surprise one lucky homebuyer on Earth Day, who will we surprise next? #LetsGetYouHome
