TreeHouse Mortgage Group’s “Giving Tree” Program is joining forces with the Veterans Transition Center of Monterey County

Monterey, CA, May 8, 2017:  TreeHouse Mortgage Group (THMG) is excited to be bringing back the “Giving Tree” Program in new and exciting ways. As of May 1, 2017 , $100 per closed loan will be donated to the Veterans Transition Center of Monterey County (VTC). The donations made will go to the purchase and creation of a fun new playground for the children housed by the VTC.

The Giving Tree Program, established by THMG in 2016, has already donated $6,000 to the Food Bank for Monterey County. The program was created to give back to the community that has helped THMG reach the level of success it has today.

The VTC is one of few Veteran organizations that accept families. They receive no outside funding for housing and services to these family members. At any time, about 10% of residents at the VTC are children. Currently, there are 14 children in VTC housing. These children are not only receiving housing with their families, but also services, such as, school, sports, and activities; yet, there is no designated play area for these children. Enter, TreeHouse Mortgage Group. To learn more about the VTC, visit their website at www.vtcmonterey.org.

THMG has pledged $100 per closed loan to build a playground in the VTC housing area. For THMG’s namesake, the playground will have a treehouse motif. The cost for this structure is $6,000, and with THMG’s record of accomplishment thus far in the Giving Tree Program, that number is easy attainable and will likely be surpassed. THMG will not only be donating financial resources to the VTC, they will be donating their time. The employees of THMG will be taking a day off from providing home loans to help prepare and install the playground.

THMG is excited for the opportunity to support not only our community, but those community members who have served all of us through their service to our country to ensure our freedom. We challenge you to open your hearts and give a gift of time or money to the VTC.
