“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.” –Margaret Mead
At Evergreen Home Loans™, we regularly make a positive impact in the communities we serve by helping our customers find their way home. We also take pride in awarding our associates with time and resources through our Evergreen Cares Foundation, to support the causes they believe in most and further make a difference in their own communities.
Hunger is one of the top issues that has risen to the forefront of our collective vision as a company. Around 30 percent of Washingtonians currently experience food insecurity, forcing them to choose between food and other vital expenses. On top of this, it’s estimated that nearly 2.2 million Washingtonians may experience food insecurity from now until the end of 2020.
As the only nonprofit foodbank distributor that operates statewide in Washington, Northwest Harvest does exceptional work in pursuit of their vision to make sure that no Washingtonian goes hungry. This organization is a powerful force in assisting those who face food insecurity and one that the community needs now more than ever. Each month, they provide nearly 2 million meals to communities across the state, and we’re honored to support their efforts.
We proudly teamed up with Northwest Harvest this year to serve as the exclusive title sponsor and underwriter for the 23rd annual “Rock the Harvest” radiothon and online auction, hosted on Seattle-based rock station KZOK. All proceeds from this radiothon benefited Northwest Harvest and its mission to provide nutritious food access across Washington to those who are hungry.
We’re excited to report the 2020 KZOK “Rock the Harvest” radiothon and online auction has raised a total of $116,000, setting a new record for the event. From the bottom of our hearts, we want to thank our Evergreen community and the countless people that tuned in to band together and support this worthy cause.
