Mount Laurel, NJ, June 24, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Freedom mortgage, one of the largest full-service mortgage companies and a leading US lender and leading FHA (Government-insured) lender, has announced the launch of its annual Backpacks to Backpacks campaign to provide school supplies for children of active duty members of the National Guard and Reservists. The money raised through the campaign, now in its ninth year, will allow children in grades K-8 to choose the school supplies they need at distribution events across nine USOs (United service organizations) centers throughout the country.
IN Backpacks for backpack fundraising goes through July 16… The company welcomes everyone to join and make an online donation.
“We are constantly striving to improve the lives of our military,” said Stanley Middleman, Founder and CEO of Freedom Mortgage. “We are honored to partner with USO again to help prepare children for academic success when they return to their school classes. Our Backpacks to Backpacks campaign is one of the ways we want to help those who defend our freedoms and that we look forward to a year. Children have fun at USO school activities and enjoy the choice of school supplies. We hope the locals will join us and donate, no matter how small the amount. ”
The money raised from the fundraiser will benefit USO Arizona; Bob Hope, USO (Southern and Central California); USO Ohio; USO from Big Jacksonville (North florida); USO Indiana; USO from Pennsylvania as well as Southern New Jersey; USO of metropolitan New York; USO for the Washington-Baltimore metropolitan area; and USO Dallas Fort Worth (North texas).
Each USO will purchase basic school supplies with the proceeds and distribute them locally in July and August to meet the needs of their military communities. If Freedom Mortgage achieves its goal USD 125,000, about 3,500 children will receive the necessary new school supplies for the start of the new school year.
Rebecca Parks, Vice President of USO Northeast Regional Office, said: “This campaign is a good example of how USO partnerships can have a significant impact on our mission and bring more than gratitude to the families of the military. Together with Freedom Mortgage, we can smile on many children’s faces and provide thousands of children with much-needed school supplies as they prepare to return to school. We are grateful to Freedom Mortgage, its employees and clients for the continued support in helping to serve those who serve us. everything.”
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, Freedom Mortgage collected school supplies in trash cans located in company offices across the country. Last year, the company switched to a virtual campaign in which employees bought backpacks and school supplies online and sent them directly to selected USO centers. The backpacks were then collected and distributed at the walk-through events at each location.
Freedom Mortgage simplified the campaign this year by creating an online fundraiser that allows USOs to buy exactly the items that kids in their communities need (http://bidpal.net/fmrucksackstobackpacks2021).
