Once again, it is the season for giving thanks. Last year, we invited our clients, friends, family and colleagues to share their stories of giving with the hope of honoring volunteers in our community and to remind us that working together, we make a difference in the world.
The stories were so touching, that I decided that Stories of Giving would be a yearly tradition.In the spirit of community and giving, I invite you to share your story of thanks and good will from 2010 to be posted here on our Stories of Giving blog. What are you grateful for? What type of community or volunteer work do you enjoy? Please send us your story! To do so, send an email to Brooke, our in-house Marketing Specialist, at Brooke@HLCTeam.com. Please keep your story to 200 words or less and submit before December 31st.
Each year, I appreciate the blessings of my life more and more. As we approach this holiday season, I send warm and sincere wishes to all of you now and through the next year for a safe, abundant and healthy year to come.
We greatly appreciate our community partnerships, including...
The HLC Team of Broadview Mortgage sponsored a Shelterbox to Haiti. Shelterboxes each contain a 10-person tent, bedding, utensils, cooking equipment, water purification assistance, tools, books, radios and more. The Rotary Club of Claremont sponsored three additional Shelterboxes. Through Rotary, we have assisted in the selection of the participants of the Teen Leadership Camp. Tim feels fortunate to be the TLC Chair and to select from a group of amazing kids to pick the students who attend this educational trip each year.
Claremont Community Foundation
We work directly with the CCF to offer financial, technical and administrative support for Art and Community Impact Projects funded by the Foundation. The HLC Team of Broadview Mortgage sponsored an art exhibition at the Foundation featuring work from local high school students.
Chamber of Commerce
We have been delighted to participate in the Best Bet Grants Program that helps local teachers fund much-needed programs in their classroom.
