CHARLOTTE, North Carolina, June 18, 2010 — USFN-America’s Mortgage Banking Attorneys recently joined forces with the Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina (SHFBM), a nonprofit hunger relief organization that supplies food and grocery items to charitable agencies that assist people in need. USFN Executive Director & CEO Alberta Hultman made the announcement.
The USFN charitable initiative took place in Charlotte, North Carolina on June 9, 2010, and over 40 USFN Members, Associate Members, and servicing professionals volunteered their time to the SHFBM’s Food Drive program. This service project took place at SHFBM’s main warehouse in Charlotte and consisted of inspecting and sorting incoming food donations and essential household products from both individual and corporate donors. The sorted food and products will later be distributed to thousands of families, agencies and local food pantries throughout 19 counties in North and South Carolina.
“Being able to assist the Second Harvest Food Bank was a rewarding experience for all those who participated,” said Hultman. “We are proud to have contributed to this outstanding organization, which provides millions of pounds of food and other essential grocery products to those in need. I continue to impressed by the enthusiasm and generosity of the mortgage servicing community and USFN members in their willingness to help others.”
