Plaza Home Mortgage
has announced that it has donated $60,791 to Susan G. Komen San Diego. Last October, Breast Cancer Awareness month, Plaza said it would donate a percentage of its total loan production for that month to the cause. This is the eighth time that Plaza has made this type of donation, topping their total of $41,000-plus donated in 2019
by over $20,000.
“We’re honored to partner with Komen San Diego for the eighth year and help the organization further its mission and fight against breast cancer,” said Kevin Parra, co-founder, chairman, president and chief executive officer at Plaza Home Mortgage. “We thank our correspondent and wholesale clients for a record amount of mortgage volume last October which helped make this donation possible. Plaza remains determined as ever to help Komen San Diego eradicate breast cancer. We are extremely proud to be one of the organization’s largest corporate contributors.”
To date, Plaza has donated more than $500,000 to Komen San Diego. Plaza’s contributions have helped thousands of women get free mammograms, biopsies, ultrasounds, care coordination, education and financial assistance for breast cancer patients’ most critical needs during treatment. Plaza’s donation will help women and their families who need financial assistance covering living expenses, like rent or a mortgage, food, prescriptions and more while they are going through treatment. Plaza’s donations have also helped Komen San Diego fund groundbreaking research.
“Plaza Home Mortgage is one of Komen San Diego’s strongest advocates and has made a significant impact in the fight against breast cancer,” said Amy Lord, director of corporate philanthropy at Susan G. Komen San Diego. “Their generosity has supported our mission of saving lives by meeting the most critical needs in San Diego County and investing in breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer. Beyond their corporate donations, several of their employees also participate in the Komen 3-Day and Race for the Cure each year. They are truly the example of what corporate commitment to the community looks like, especially in these trying times.”
