HUNTSVILLE, Ala., March 25, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- HomeTown Lenders (HTL) on Thursday announced a partnership with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital®. In total, HTL's newfound effort aims to generate $1 million this year to support the mission of St. Jude: Finding cures. Saving children.®
HTL views the St. Jude partnership as an avenue to serve others while implementing the company motto: People Over Profits.
HomeTown Lenders has set a goal of donating at least $1 million in 2021. Many of HTL's ninety-one branches will participate in the ambitious effort. Participating branches will donate a minimum of $50 for every loan closed in 2021 St. Jude, where no family receives a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
"Our customers and staff always jump at a challenge, and we have intentionally set a bold goal – one that underscores our motto, People over Profits," said Billy Taylor, CEO of HomeTown Lenders. "Throughout 2021, we will strive to raise our community outreach standard and give back to the local communities in which we live and work by donating hard-earned revenue to a tremendously worthwhile cause. Childhood cancer is a disease that affects so many, and we are eager to join the fight to end it. The St. Jude team in Memphis does a remarkable job of researching effective treatments and potential cures for our most valuable resources: our young people. I could not be prouder of our team for taking the bull by the horns and raising the bar this year."
Based in Huntsville, Alabama., HTL now has almost 100 branch locations and is doing business in more than 40 states.
As seen in Hometown's thousands of testimonials (click here to view the latest), HTL puts a premium on giving their customers the highest quality experience possible, truly striving to embody good, old-fashioned southern hospitality – even in the digital age.
HTL firmly believes that its key philosophy of the three R's – Recruit the best, Retain our talent, and Remember who got us here – is the foundation of continuing to exceed its lofty goals.
