Liberty Bank Giving Circle to Benefit Homeless

by Liberty Bank | Apr 10, 2017

Middletown, CT — During the months of April and May, applying for a first mortgage at Liberty Bank offers more than a great rate and superior service for homebuyers: it also helps homeless people throughout the area served by the bank. 

Liberty’s Giving Circle program sets aside $100 for each first mortgage application received by the bank during April and May, and then divides the accumulated funds among 29 local agencies that provide emergency or transitional housing for homeless families and individuals. Last year’s distribution of $40,000 brought the total donated under the 23-year-old program to almost $540,000. 

“There’s something very satisfying about the idea that someone who is about to buy a home of their own—a big event in anyone’s life—is at the same time helping to shelter someone else who has no home at all,” said Thomas J. Hylinski, executive vice president of Liberty Bank’s Retail Lending group.
