Throughout the year, MUFG Union Bank’s employees in Consumer Lending help clients navigate the often complex journey to homeownership. At their desks, in conference rooms, on computers and phones, these dedicated employees help make the dreams of owning a home come true. This summer, they had the opportunity to help families achieve homeownership in a different way.
MUFG Union Bank employees volunteered in a day-long homebuilding event in the San Diego Habitat for Humanity (SDHFH) Elm Street Community in Escondido, California, a suburb of San Diego to help build nine homes. The bank is a sponsor of the Elm Street Community and has donated more than $15,000 through their foundation to SDHFH.
Expected to be move-in ready in Fall 2015, the 11 new Elm Street homes will go to local families in need, including one disabled veteran and his family. The three-bedroom, two-bath homes are approximately 1,300 square feet and will include a covered carport and private backyard, as well as access to two planned common recreational areas.
“We’re proud to partner with San Diego Habitat for Humanity to serve our local community and to help make homeownership a reality for these families,” says MUFG Union Bank’s Managing Director Jim Francis, Head of Consumer Lending. “Our Consumer Lending team is committed to giving back in the communities that we serve and helping improve the lives of others.”
Congratulations MUFG Union Bank!
