LINTHICUM, MD, September 8, 2016— During the month of August, NFM Lending matched donations made by employees to the Ellicott City Partnership, a nonprofit supporting rebuilding efforts in Ellicott City, Maryland, after the flooding that took place in July.
On July 30, 2016, Ellicott City experienced severe floods that destroyed stores, buildings, and homes along Main Street. The area received six inches of rainfall in less than two hours, causing the river to overflow, sweeping cars away and causing major destruction. All residents of the area were evacuated, and many lost everything that they had.
“The devastation in Ellicott City hits extremely close to home for NFM,” said Bob Tyson, COO/CAO of NFM Lending. “I am fortunate enough to be a part of a team that loves being involved in the community. This is about more than just ‘giving back’ though; this is about restoring stability to the lives of everyone affected. I am humbled by the support offered thus far, and I hope NFM’s match will encourage more people to donate.”
The Ellicott City Partnership is a local nonprofit whose mission is “to preserve the heritage and vitality of Historic Ellicott City while enhancing and creating economic growth.” The organization is currently dedicated to supporting Ellicott City businesses and residents as they work to rebuild their community.
NFM Lending is proud to support the community of Ellicott City as they work to restore their town. For more information about NFM Lending’s nonprofit work, click here.
