Good Deeds: First American Champions Deliver

E69144FF-9F82-47DE-BA9A-B19BA93EB0E3Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, people in underserved communities have experienced food insecurity—meaning they have limited or uncertain access to enough food. First American’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Advisory Council partnered with its #FirstAmCares Champions to sponsor Volunteer Month in April.

Overall, the Champions campaign held over 40 virtual and in-person food drives raising $152,500 and collecting more than 15,000 pounds of food.

First American’s home office team in Santa Ana, Calif., held a drive-thru food drop that collected six truckloads of canned goods for Grandma’s House of Hope. First American teams in Arizona, along with 40 Realtors, collected over 2,300 pounds of food and raised $5,680 for several local food banks. Groups in Indiana donated 1,300 pounds of pasta and raised $1,750 to benefit Second Helpings Food Bank. First American’s Nevada Champions raised $4,000 and filled two carloads of food for the Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth, focusing on collecting travel-friendly items that could fit in backpacks. Offices in Idaho held a competition, collecting thousands of food and personal care items as well as raising over $2,700 in online donations. Some Wyoming branches even got their clients in on the food-drive fun, increasing donations for Needs Inc. and fostering a spirit of goodwill.

In May 2021, First American organized its second annual coast-to-coast virtual relay race to support Feeding America, raising a total of $24,050. Due to overwhelming interest, First American created teams made up of more than 260 employees from every U.S. division. The total amount raised for Feeding America was $94,221.
