APMCares was founded in 2015 to serve the needs of families and communities where our loan originators live and work. This is an initiative that encourages and inspires our core belief that people matter. Through our community outreach donations, raised entirely by our APM team members, APMCares offers support to nonprofit organizations, charities and private foundations in our local communities.
As our company and our communities continue to navigate these unprecedented times, it is our mission to do everything possible to offer support and aid to those who need it the most. Now, more than ever, what matters most is tangible relief for people in need. One of the best ways we can do that is by making donations to local food banks to ensure that families have food and one less thing to worry about.
Below is a list of the incredible organizations that we’ve been working with across our company footprint. We are grateful for the work of these organizations and their boots on the ground that ensure that our communities have the resources they need. All of these organizations are making an incredible difference, and we’re happy to lend a hand. And our work doesn’t stop here! Our local branches and loan originators are submitting requests daily to continue these efforts during these challenging times.
