Why does giving back matter? For me, it’s a passion for strengthening communities because fellowship enriches lives. We strengthen communities by building pathways to homeownership and giving back. During Guild Impact Month, employees join hands to volunteer in their communities. Our Boise branch recently partnered with St. Vincent De Paul to assist with its local thrift stores, food pantry and dining hall. St. Vincent serves over 1,500 meals and 1,000 families each month. The branch kicked off the partnership with a donation day to collect clothes, furniture and other household items. They filled an entire truck with donations and raised an additional $200 that day. Ongoing, Boise will send 3 to 4 employees to volunteer at the food pantry every first Friday. Our Guild Gives Back Volunteers will help families walk through the food pantry, unload food trucks and organize food products. This is just one example of how we live our values.
