FRAMINGHAM – Framingham resident Jessica Mendez is one of five winners of RTN Federal Credit Union’s Front Porch Project contest.
The summer contest asked RTN members to share in 10 words or fewer what COVID-19 meant to them, with each winner getting a family portrait taken outside their homes in keeping with social distancing guidelines.
Mendez quote: A silver lining of good and bad.
“It was heartfelt reading all the entries and learning what COVID-19 has meant to our members,” comments Nicole James, RTN Executive Vice President. “Front Porch and outdoor portraits have become a way to document individual families’ and our collective experience during the pandemic. During this unusual time, it’s more important than ever to stay connected and that’s what the contest was all about.”
