MIDDLETOWN, R.I., Sept. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Embrace Home Loans, a top-ranked national mortgage lender, has donated over 9000 facial masks to public schools on Aquidneck Island, where the company is headquartered. The masks have been distributed to schools in Middletown, Newport and Portsmouth, where they will be used to help keep teachers, staff and students from spreading the COVID-19 coronavirus.

Embrace is one of the nation’s leading mortgage lenders, with over 650 team members across the country. The company is licensed in 48 states and the District of Columbia. 

«Our culture is one of giving back to the community, so we are honored to have the opportunity to help keep our children and families safe and healthy as the new school year gets underway,» said Jennifer O’Neil, Embrace Home Loans’ director of communications. «By doing our part, we hope to have an impact on stopping the spread of the COVID-19 virus so that our students can focus on learning and spending time with their friends.»

«On behalf of the Portsmouth School Department, I would like to thank Embrace Home Loans for their generous PPE donation,» said Dr. Thomas Kenworthy, Portsmouth, Rhode Island superintendent of schools. «These supplies are much needed as we get ready to safely welcome students and staff back to the new school year.»

In addition to the masks that were delivered to Aquidneck Island schools, many of Embrace Home Loans’ retail branches donated masks in their local communities.  In total, retail branches donated over 15,000+ masks to non-profits and organizations all along the East Coast.  

«Our company does so much in the community, but since the pandemic, we haven’t been able to do as much physically,» said Nicole Hawkins, retail support manager. «However, our team remains committed to finding ways to help others whenever we can, and these mask donations are a prime example.»

Embrace has continued to grow and add staff during the pandemic. The company has transitioned many of its employees to work from home and supports them with online communities that focus on employee well-being and virtual teambuilding. Employees who needed to care for someone with the coronavirus are provided relief days as well.
