In support of Breast Cancer Awareness month, the company pledged to make a donation to Komen for every loan closed from its October production. As a result of the efforts of Plaza associates and customers, the company was able to exceed its goal and raise $99,472.37.
“Plaza is proud to support Komen’s mission of finding the cure and ending breast cancer forever,” said Kevin Parra, CEO and co-founder of Plaza Home Mortgage. “So many people are touched by friends or loved ones fighting this disease, but I have to say we were overwhelmed by the impact this had on our associates; we heard an outpouring of personal stories when we announced our pledge.”
The money will help fund the largest investment in breast cancer research in the world next to the U.S. government and the largest program of free breast cancer treatments and services for America’s uninsured women and their families.
“As one of the larger mortgage wholesale/correspondent companies across North America, we are in a unique position to increase awareness to our customers nationwide,” explains James Cutri, executive vice president of national production of Plaza Home Mortgage.
