Plaza Home Mortgage Inc. announced that it donated $41,000 to Susan G. Komen San Diego. This past October, Plaza announced its seventh annual donation program to support the charity in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness month. In honor of the company’s continued support throughout the years, Komen San Diego awarded Plaza with its Laura Farmer Sherman Award, which recognizes San Diego’s strongest advocates, innovative partners and committed volunteers.
To date, Plaza has raised more than $500,000 for Komen San Diego. This year, Plaza’s donation will be designated to 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.
COO and CFO Michael Fontaine, at Plaza Home Mortgage, said: “Breast cancer has impacted the lives of so many of us, so we are extremely proud to be one of Komen San Diego’s largest corporate contributors.”
