Quicken Loans Inc., a 50-state lender of refinance and purchase mortgages, announced it contributed nearly $16,000 to the United Service Organization’s (USO) Wounded Warriors Program as part of its Veteran’s Day donation initiative.
“The USO’s Wounded Warriors Program ensures that when injured members of our Armed Forces come home, they have the resources they need to readapt to civilian life, which is critical to their healing,” said Wendy Kemp, Director of Community Relations at Quicken Loans. “We’re proud to be the lender of choice for many veterans and we’re excited to make this donation to such an important group of American heroes.”
The initative, taking place between November 11-14, 2010, was developed to honor Veteran’s Day and the men and women that serve in the Armed Forces. During that time, Quicken Loans’ Community Diff team donated $200 for every VA loan that was originated and subsequently closed.
The USO is a private, non-profit organization which relies on the generosity of volunteers, donors and corporate sponsors to provide vital programs and services for troops. Operating in more than 160 locations around the world, the USO helps service men and women and their families by providing communications access, goods, services and entertainment during tours of duty and beyond.
