FirstTrust Home Loans, Inc. has pledged to give back to communities all across the nation, especially those in the communities we serve. We have a passion for helping children and plan to do so quarterly with the help of our dedicated employees. There is nothing more important to our family-oriented team, than serving those around us. We do it every day in the mortgage industry and have a heart for helping children and want to expand on what we do at a community level.
April was month of the Military Child. This quarter we are working with “Our Military Kids”, a non-profit that provides funds to children who have parents that are deployed or who have parents that are recovering from severe injuries sustained in combat. We will donate a portion of our overall profits this quarter to go to these children. We look forward to continuing to give back each quarter and are so excited to start off with the non-profit “Our Military Kids”.
Our third quarter recipient is the Special Olympics. The Special Olympics have a chapter in every state we serve. “Special Olympics is a global movement of people creating a new world of inclusion and community, where every single person is accepted and welcomed, regardless of ability or disability. We are helping to make the world a better, healthier and more joyful place—one athlete, one volunteer, one family member at a time.” - About (specialolympics.org) This quarter will be even better than the first, as many of our employees have pledged to give personally alongside the FirstTrust donation. For every dollar donated from an employee, FirstTrust will match that donation on top of giving an additional company donation.
For our fourth and final quarter of 2021 we have selected Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation as our charity to support. We are excited to work alongside our FirstTrust team this quarter and raise funds along with participating in the JDRF “One Walk” on November 14th. We chose JDRF as our organization to support this quarter because Type One Diabetes directly affects several of our employees and their family members in this organization.
To follow along our journey of advocacy and support for this organization over the next three months, you can follow our teams link below:
It’s our first quarter kick off for the FirstTrust for Kids initiative. We have happily chosen to support “Autism Speaks” as our first quarter recipient. “Autism Speaks is dedicated to promoting solutions, across the spectrum and throughout the life span, for the needs of individuals with autism and their families. We do this through advocacy and support; increasing understanding and acceptance of people with autism; and advancing research into causes and better interventions for autism spectrum disorder and related conditions.” - Our Mission | Autism Speaks
