Texas Lending (TexasLending.com) is not just one of the top mortgage bankers in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, it also firmly believes in giving back to the community. Texas Lending has a significant presence locally, supporting a variety of causes through its in-house “Care Bearz” team comprised of employees from various departments. These employees organize fun events within the company and also raise funds and goods to support a variety of causes in the DFW area.
Texas Lending’s Care Bearz have organized drives for a number of organizations, including The North Dallas Food Bank, an organization that helps provide food to those in need. Care Bearz have been able to help further The North Dallas Food Bank’s mission to help the community not only by providing canned and boxed food items, but also by making sure those items are healthy and nutritious.
Texas Lending employees have also helped organize events to help the North Texas American Diabetes Association. Diabetes is a disease that affects more than two million North Texas residents. Texas Lending has employees who have suffered from the disease, both personally or with someone close to them, so the issue is one that is near to Texas Lending’s heart. Through helping the North Texas American Diabetes Association, Texas Lending hopes to contribute to eventually wiping out the disease in the area.
The Texas Lending Care Bearz team has also participated in the Susan G. Komen Walk for the Cure. This annual nationwide event has raised more than $1.9 billion for the fight against breast cancer since it began in 1982. Participants at Texas Lending obtain pledges prior to the day of the walk, and then walk a preset number of miles along with other participants in the community.
Employees at Texas Lending also helps Toys for Tots, a Christmastime event that collects toys for children at Christmastime. Texas Lending assisted the Dallas-Fort Worth Toys for Tots drive, which collected and distributed more than 277,000 toys last year. Businesses like Texas Lending collect toys from employees, who are able to easily bring the toys to the event coordinator to collect and hand off to the Toys for Tots coordinators.
Texas Lending also supports the Promise House, a shelter for teens. Promise House gives a home to runaway and homeless teens, providing a safe place where they can receive the support they need.
The Care Bearz team allows Texas Lending to be an active part of the community while helping others and giving back. Texas Lending continues to look for great ways to get employees involved in other charitable activities.
