GAITHERSBURG, Md., Sept. 16, 2021 – Award-winning residential mortgage lender, Homespire Mortgage, is pleased to announce the success of its recent Homespire CAN food drive, an initiative to help reduce childhood hunger and support the local communities in which employees live and work. With an initial goal of raising one ton of non-perishable food donations for local non-profit pantries and organizations, Homespire’s employees worked together to more than triple this goal. According to Feeding America, Homespire’s donation of 7,211 pounds of food will equate to 6,009 meals for families in need.
Homespire CAN is part of the company’s “Inspired to Impact” social responsibility program, an initiative focused on creating meaningful change in communities the company serves through charitable contributions and employee volunteerism. The food drive took place in August, supported by 21 of Homespire’s branches, with collections distributed to over 70 food banks across the U.S. including Manna Food Center, Project Hand Up, Virginia Peninsula Food Bank, Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina, With Love From Jesus, Beulah Baptist Church Food Pantry and Friendship Place.
“As children head back to school while facing the ongoing challenges of the pandemic, it is vital that we help support families that are living with food insecurity in the communities where we live and work,” said Homespire Mortgage President Michael Rappaport. “Creating meaningful change and reinvesting in the communities we serve as well as inspiring others to make an impact are pillars of our business and what drives our vision.”
“Homespire’s donation will help so many families in our community during these especially challenging times,” said Mardia Dennis, director of development and communications for Gaithersburg, Maryland-based Manna Food Center. “As with everywhere in the country, Covid continues to create food difficulties for many, and Homespire’s contribution will allow us to help many of those struggling in our area to find the nourishment and support they need.”
