October 30th turned about to be a great day for us and the entire county of San Bernardino. Now, many nonprofits just like us can serve seniors, children, Veterans, and others with basic needs. The event has now raised more than $1.5 million for 333 nonprofits over the past five years. We look forward to participating next year!
One of our donations won us a golden ticket worth $425!
We were a top 3 nonprofit in the 4th district!
We wanted to give a special thanks to our donor Lindsey Orellana, who’s $10 donation turned into a golden ticket (above Facebook post) for us and won a prize of $425! Also, a big thank you to our top two biggest donors of the day – Lisa Green from First American Financial and Ryan Grant of the Ryan Grant Team of Fairway Mortgage. We also placed 3rd in the 4th district of San Bernardino, which was only possible from ALL our great donors. We truly thank you!
Where Does The Money Go?
All of the funds raised on October 30th are going into our Veteran Home Buyers Grant fund. Which are the funds we use to assist low-income Veterans in their first home purchase. Stay tuned for more information on the goal of this grant program in 2019!
Veterans: We Have Grants For You!
Veterans or active duty military personnel who need assistance on top of using their VA Loan are encouraged to apply to receive funds through our Home Buying Grant program. You can apply on our website or give us a call to learn more. If you are a lender and typically work with Veterans, we would love to talk to you about using our grant program with your clients.
