On the job or off, Freddie Mac employees have a long tradition of making a difference. It starts with their commitment to our housing mission that has made home possible for nearly 71 million families over the last 45 years. And it extends to giving freely of their time and talents, outside of the office, in the communities where they live and work.
To celebrate this commitment, today we are kicking off a month of service with the company's volunteers – the Freddie Mac Community Crew. During October's Serve Call-to-Action initiative, events from Los Angeles to New York will connect volunteers with our communities in four important ways:
- Build & Serve: Working at sites to build, rehab, and repair homes in underserved communities.
- Stop & Serve: Assembling welcome packages for families getting ready to move into their new homes.
- Give & Serve: Donating housing supplies for new and first-time homebuyers and those transitioning into permanent housing.
- Learn & Serve: Creating opportunities for employees to introduce the nonprofits they support to their colleagues so they can learn more about the nonprofit's mission and how to get involved that day and all year long.
