*Charity Is Important*
**Lender Gives Back**
***It’s the season of giving back. We all have to do our part. That means getting actively involved in local charities. For example, Churchill Mortgage, a conventional, FHA, VA and USDA residential mortgage lender that operates across 26 states, has helped provide more than $500,000 in donations to dozens of charities and organizations this year to benefit children and local communities of its branch locations.
****Maintaining its commitment to the community, Churchill Mortgage has donated or helped raise funds as well as dedicated time for various organizations throughout the year, ranging from local school systems and youth organizations to health research groups including the Alzheimer’s Association, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and the American Heart Association. The lender also supports organizations such as the Nashville Zoo, AMVETS (American Veterans), 147 Million Orphans Foundation and several youth athletic leagues and children’s hospitals.
****In addition, the lender will fund a food pantry through Second Harvest Food Bank again this year on Dec. 14, 2012. Employees will participate by giving away food to Second Harvest customers for the holidays. Second Harvest’s mission is to feed the hungry and work to solve hunger issues in the local community.
****“At Churchill Mortgage, we embrace the core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility,” said Mike Hardwick, president, Churchill Mortgage. “By donating both time and money to dozens of organizations, we’re able to positively affect thousands of lives in need and uphold these important values. We look forward to the holiday season – a time of giving – and encourage other local organizations and individuals to give back to their communities.”
