NEMBC Gives Back
Please support our Veterans and help us reach our $10,000 goal!
For the past few years, the New England Mortgage Bankers Conference (NEMBC) has solicited donations for our military. This year " NEMBC Gives Back" is proud to partner with Homes for our Troops. We are also pleased to announce that because of the generosity of Birchwood Credit Services, we will be able to support TWO outstanding 501(c)3 charities!
Homes For Our Troops (HFOT) is a privately funded 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization that builds and donates specially adapted custom homes nationwide for severely injured post - 9/11 Veterans, to enable them to rebuild their lives. Most of these Veterans have sustained injuries including multiple limb amputations, partial or full paralysis, and/or severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). These homes restore some of the freedom and independence our Veterans sacrificed while defending our country, and enable them to focus on their family, recovery, and rebuilding their lives.
Although we can't realistically raise enough funds to build an entire home - our $10,000 goal is to raise enough for a structurally enabled bathroom in a home built somewhere in New England. In addition, Birchwood Credit Services has generously committed to matching that amount with up to another $10,000.
Please join us in our efforts to support this wonderful organization! We would like to challenge all industry members, whether you are attending NEMBC or not - to donate and help us reach our goal.
The NEMBC Planning Committee
Operation Gratitude sends more than 250,000 individually addressed care packages annually, helping lift the spirits of U.S. Military personnel, first responders, and others who serve our nation. In addition to snacks, entertainment, and hygiene items, these personal packages also include Beanie Babies®, which are "deployed" to bring cheer to the service men and women and as gifts for local children.
This year, Birchwood Credit Services is doubling their donation commitment and will be making one donation of $5,000 and a second donation-also of $5,000-in the name of a raffle winner who will also take home a brand new iPad Pro valued at approximately $1000.
