“We are so fortunate to have our employees come together to donate to an organization committed to helping future generations,” said the PenFed Chairman and CEO. James Schenck. “We prioritize charitable giving as a financial institution and look forward to continuing our summer giving initiative.”
The donation is part of PenFed’s commitment to give to local charities in the Tysons and more washington d.c. community this summer, with employees purchasing items from Mobile Hope’s Amazon Wish List to donate more than 700 items to the organization.
Mobile Hope was founded by Donna Fortier in 2011 as part of a special project at Inova Loudon Hospital, after discovering a significant number of homeless youth in Loudoun County. Fortier began by distributing clothing, food and hygiene items to young people in need on the hospital’s mobile bus.
Fortier then expanded its mission to serve homeless and at-risk youth up to the age of 24. Mobile Hope works to shelter, clothe, feed, transport, guide and empower based on the needs of each client.
Hear the Honk Bus is Mobile Hope’s signature bus that has delivered fresh food, diapers, hygiene items, books and toys to over 320,000 family members since March 2020. The bus goes every week in surrounding counties to deliver donated goods to families in need.
