Embrace Home Loans Raises $20 Thousand for Haiti During Auction

Newport, R.I.-based Embrace Home Loans recently organized and held an auction, in lieu of holding its annual sales meeting, to raise funds for Haiti. Raising more than $20,000, contributions will go towards Partners with Haiti to support Haitian orphanages. Embrace Home Loans is a prominent leader in the mortgage industry and a direct lender for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, approved by FHA and VA, and an issuer for Ginnie Mae.

“To raise such a large volume of money illustrates how giving and caring our employees are,” said Dennis Hardiman, CEO and founder of Embrace Home Loans. “Not only is the local community very important to us, but we’re also devoted to helping those outside our immediate reach to better the lives of others, especially those affected by such devastation as the people of Haiti have been. As implied by our name, we continuously embrace the global community and strive to improve the quality of life for our neighbors and friends. Through this event, we hope that our contribution will help make a difference.”

Auction items were donated by employees, which included Red Sox/Yankees tickets, Celtics tickets, sport fishing trip in Florida, use of RV for a week, use of vacation house in Florida for a week, use of convertible for a weekend, Taylor Swift concert tickets and more. The company normally holds its annual company sales meeting during this time each year. Given the tragic events that occurred in Haiti, the company decided to forgo its annual meeting and instead use it as an opportunity to raise donations and create awareness about the dire need in Haiti.
