Guaranteed Rate Branch Donates 6,072 Pounds of Food and Personal Care Items to CharityDec 12 2017
Guaranteed Rate’s Wilmington, North Carolina branch donated nearly 6,072 pounds of food and personal care items to charity. The items were collected as part of a company-wide food drive initiative. All items were donated to the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina. Serving 34 counties and with over 800 partner agencies, the Food Bank has provided food to those at risk for hunger for over 35 years.
“Most of us at Guaranteed Rate are blessed beyond what we need and this particular cause is one we are very passionate about, so we were happy to give back to those that need it more than we do,” stated Chris Hutchens, Wilmington Branch Manager and VP of Mortgage Lending. “Without a doubt, the food drive required help from the whole team and we are thrilled with this year’s turnout.”
As a company, Guaranteed Rate raised a total of 75,418 pounds of food, equaling roughly 225,000 meals for those in need. The company has consistently increased the amount donated year over year.
