This August, NFM Lending held a Back-to-School Drive to collect school supplies for children in need in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. Throughout the month, NFM Lending employees collected new school supplies for children in grades 1-5, filling 50 backpacks with the school supplies required by the county, such as notebooks, pencils, erasers, scissors, and other school necessities.
Anne Arundel County Public Schools distribute donated school supplies to children who qualify for federal food assistance programs based on household income. In Anne Arundel County, over 14,000 students were participating in these programs in the 2010-2011 school years.
Since its foundation in 1998, NFM Lending has maintained a strong commitment to giving back to our communities.
