“The American dream of homeownership would not be possible without the selfless individuals who help protect our rights and our country,” said Laura Soave, chief brand officer, CCM. “We are very proud to celebrate National Military Appreciation Month through several new initiatives, but our dedication to the U.S. Armed Forces is something we are committed to year-round.”
In addition to employing nearly 250 veterans and active-duty service members, as well as offering VA loans as part of its lending portfolio, CCM’s support of the military includes:
- Home for a Hero
Later this month, CCM will award one lucky Northeast Ohio-based active-duty military member or veteran $10,000 to be used toward their mortgage as part of its Home for a Hero Sweepstakes with FOX 8. Eight additional military members will receive $500.
- Reuniting a Military Family
As the official mortgage partner of the Cleveland Browns, CCM and the Cleveland Browns recently partnered to reunite a military mom and her Ohio family with a surprise unveil at the Browns’ CrossCountry Mortgage Campus in Berea.
- Creating Memorable Experiences
Over the past year, CCM has donated more than 250 game tickets, including tickets to professional football and hockey games, to enable members of the military to enjoy a day with their loved ones. The company also donated 500 tickets to the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl in December for use by military members and their families in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The company has plans for similar ticket donations during the fall sports season.
- Honoring Fallen Heroes
Last fall, CCM made a $100,000 donation to the high school alma mater of fallen hero Maxton W. Soviak, who lost his life serving in Afghanistan. The gift was presented during the Cleveland Browns “Salute to Service” game.
The company looks forward to continuing its commitment to military-minded causes throughout the year.
