Denver, Colorado (11/14/14)–This year U.S. Bank has partnered with Mercy Housing as part of the Mercy Housing Home Is campaign. This campaign launches in November during National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week, and runs through the holiday season. The campaign will run from November 17, 2014 through January 9, 2015.
The National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week is held the week before Thanksgiving to allow individuals throughout America to reflect on what they are thankful for, and to create a time for them to show their compassion for their neighbors experiencing homelessness right in their own backyard. This year, National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week will be held from November 15-23, 2014.
U.S. Bank and Mercy Housing are committed to bringing a greater awareness to communities across the United States and helping promote the national endeavor to end hunger and homelessness. When people don’t have to worry about the safety and affordability of their home, they can focus on gaining new career skills, helping their children succeed in school, and becoming involved in their communities.
U.S. Bank has partnered with Mercy Housing this year through a commitment of up to $15,000 in donations. At U.S. Bank, Home Is means investing in your future. Individuals can register online for Financial Genius for Life. This financial education will allow individuals to build their own financial capability and help those in need begin their journey to financial stability. Through the partnership that U.S. Bank has made with Mercy Housing, they will donate $50 for every person who registers to explore the eight modules of financial education. Visit Homeis.org for more information regarding U.S. Bank and their free modules to ensure financial success.
Mercy Housing and U.S. Bank are committed to generate awareness and help create stable, vibrant and healthy homes for low- and moderate-income families, seniors, individuals, and people with special needs. Mercy Housing is redefining affordable housing by not only creating a stable foundation where residents can explore their potential, but also providing practical Resident Services such as health classes, financial education, employment initiatives, and parent and after-school programs for children. U.S. Bank is committed to helping bridge the gap and providing financial education to help those escape poverty and ensure a more financial stable life ahead.
