Caliber Home Loans, Inc. announced it raised $500,000 nationally for United Way as part of its “Caliber Kindness” fundraising initiative to benefit food
banks and other vital community support services related to COVID-19 relief efforts. This is their first relationship with United Way Worldwide.
The funds, which include almost 2,000 donations from Caliber Home Loans employees and a generous company match, will be distributed by United Way to more than 50 communities across the country. The 50 communities represent Caliber’s goal of giving back to communities nationally that have been affected by the coronavirus. United Way of Thurston County will receive a donation in the amount of $5,000.00.
“The Caliber Kindness campaign is our commitment to giving back to those communities where we live and work. We’ve seen unprecedented hardship impact the world over the past several months, and at Caliber, we felt it was important to do our part to help,” said Sanjiv Das, CEO of Caliber Home Loans. “I’m so proud of how our employees stepped up to this challenge, and we’re thankful for United Way’s partnership and support in getting donations to those most in need.”
The “Caliber Kindness” initiative was a friendly competition among Caliber Home Loan’s employees at various locations to encourage giving to their local United Way. The Tarrant County, TX United Way was instrumental in coordinating the logistics and distribution efforts of
the funds raised.
