At PRMI, we strive to be much more than a great mortgage lender and employer. We also are dedicated to being a company that gives back — not only to the communities we serve but those in need around the world. Join us in looking back at our incredible journey of public service in 2016.
In early December, more than 30 PRMI employees from across the nation flew to Montego Bay, Jamaica, to help 79 children living at the SOS Children’s Village. The private, non-profit organization helps protect orphaned and abandoned children, ensuring that each child grows up with love, security, education and respect.
PRMI employees planted fruit trees, shrubs and a garden, painted homes, served food and provided early Christmas gifts to the children and caretakers. The group also gave a fresh makeover of paint to the tennis court and playground area.
Also in December, PRMI’s corporate office held its annual winter clothing drive and donated more than 200 articles of clothing to the Road Home shelter in Salt Lake City and volunteered to help sort and distribute donations. PRMI employees also volunteered at the Rescue Mission of Salt Lake to help prepare its annual Christmas dinner, which served more than 1,400 people in need.
Earlier in the year, PRMI partnered with Feeding America during its annual Hunger Action Month campaign. We were able to raise $152,052 in just eight weeks! The donations will help provide more than 1.68 million meals to children, families and seniors nationwide. It was an amazing way to give back to the communities we serve.
“Primary Residential Mortgage has fully embraced the need for a strong, united hunger-relief effort in order to feed the individuals and families struggling with hunger in the United States,” said Nancy Curby, interim senior vice president of development at Feeding America. “We’re grateful to have their support and know that the meals they’ve raised will provide hope for thousands of people.”
At PRMI, everyone — from our employees to our executive team — are involved in giving back to our communities. It was an extraordinary year for our company and we’re looking forward to making an even greater impact in 2017.
