We’re so thrilled to congratulate long-time Habitat SKC supporter – HomeStreet Bank – on its 100th anniversary serving the Puget Sound region. You may recall we presented HomeStreet with our Community Partner of the Year award in 2020 in recognition of its long-standing support of our chapter. Darrell van Amen, EVP and Chief Investment Officer, serves on Habitat’s Board of Directors as Treasurer.
Recently, Seattle Refined featured HomeStreet’s community involvement, focusing on its work with Habitat that encompasses 21 years and incorporates engagement of its employees with significant financial support. Highlights of its support include:
- A financial commitment of more than $260,000 to Habitat. The company has given substantial time as well, providing over 200 volunteers who contributed well over 1000 volunteer hours.
- Being instrumental in the building of a number of Habitat homes including the opening of our wonderful project in 2019 in Sammamish, as well as facilitating Federal Home Loan Bank payments for our homeowners, providing financial education to Habitat’s AmeriCorps volunteers, and even tallying donations after the annual luncheon.
We can’t overstate how much HomeStreet’s partnership has meant to our affiliate, and on behalf of all of us, we congratulate them on celebrating 100 years. We look forward to 100 more.
