Keller, a Branch Manager of Southtown Mortgage, in Moody, AL, spearheaded a campaign for his Teamworx group to fill a need that he saw in his community. He was able to successfully provide 75 bicycles and 35 gift cards for children and teens of Big Oak Ranch.
“I have always wanted to give back to kids at Christmas time and truly felt called to action to do this for the Big Oaks Ranch, so I got together with my Teamworx group and we made it happen!” Keller exclaimed.
Keller was also aided on this project by Shane Ray, the co-Manager of the Southtown office.
Not only does the Southtown branch make sure to be proactive during the holidays, but they also continuously give to Mission Firefly at the rate of $200 per funded loan!!
Mission Firefly is a 501(c)3 that was started by HomeTown’s CEO and Owner, Billy Taylor, in 2009. The non-profit has provided clean water to over 50,000 individuals living impoverished countries across the world, mostly in Guatemala, as well as serving locally to feed almost 200 children weekly through a service called Lunches of Love.
“Keller and Shane are the types of guys that we look for in partners, they have been here going on 5 years now and we hope they retire with us. They quickly realized the “WHY” in the way HomeTown operates and made it their own. Their loan donations have helped so many of those in need and we are grateful to work with them,” Logan Hoffman, Public Relations, stated.
“What Keller and Shane have done from a philanthrophy standpoint is really exciting and shows they are the embodiment of what makes Hometown Lenders a great company” said John Taylor, President of Hometown Lenders, Inc.”They truly understand that our business is a vehicle to do great things in our local communities. Keller and Shane are shining examples of what it means to build a legacy instead of an inheritance” Taylor said.
