During the months of April and May, applying for a mortgage at Liberty Bank offers more than a great rate and superior service for home buyers: it also helps homeless people throughout the area served by the bank.
Liberty’s Giving Circle program sets aside $100 for every mortgage application received by the bank during April and may, and then donates the accumulated funds to 29 local agencies that provide emergency or transitional housing for homeless families and individuals. Last year’s distribution of $44,500 brought the total donated under the 22-year-old program to almost $500,000.
