Embrace Home Loans Maitland Team helps out at Second Harvest Food Bank

Embrace Home Loans employees celebrated the company’s 30th year in business by getting out into the community and giving back. Each year, the company anniversary holds special meaning to the teammates of Embrace Home Loans. During the week of May 13, each department took time out of their work day to volunteer for a local organization. Melissa Rodrigues, a Processor at Embrace, and her team volunteered at the local VA hospital, spending time with the veterans, talking with them, taking them for walks, playing Bingo. She commented on her experience, “When we were leaving, I told the woman that it was a pleasure to meet her and spend time with her. Her face lit up like a Christmas tree and she said, “it was?” She thanked us for taking her for her walk. I think it’s great that we take one day out of our busy lives to help out in someone else’s!” Oliver Palmer, Loan Officer at Embrace, talked about his experience, “It feels really rewarding to help. We went over to Boys Town in Portsmouth and helped sand and paint the benches and table around the property. They were very appreciative and it always feels good to help out.”

Courtney Hinton, an Underwriter in our Maitland Florida office noted, “We packed food boxes at the local food bank and it felt great to get to give back and actually see firsthand what it can mean when a team of people comes together to help out those in need. We picked a great place. They were very appreciative of our time. I know several of my teammates were talking about trying to go back and get our loved ones involved too.”
