Premier Nationwide Lending Joins Hands with CBS Eco Media to Support Blessings in a Backpack

03/25/2014

Flower Mound, Texas – Premier Nationwide Lending (PNL) is proud of and excited about its partnership with CBS EcoMedia in support of the Blessings in a Backpack program. The mission of Blessings in a Backpack is to provide nutritional food for elementary children across America who may otherwise have little or no food to eat on weekends during the school year. Sadly, there are 20 million kids in America who are at risk of hunger. PNL’s support is helping solve a major issue in our country.

Specifically, PNL is working with Uplift Peak Preparatory , a K-12 campus located in East Dallas near Baylor Hospital. Students in this school often come from challenging backgrounds so the ability to have meals through the weekend really sets up the students for success. “They are able to not worry about not having food over the weekend or going hungry and not being the first thing on their minds on Monday morning. They are able to come to school really ready and prepared to learn,” said Sara Ortego of Uplift Peak Preparatory.

A team of PNL employees met at the school to do a “stuffing” of the backpacks on December 10, 2013. They included food that was easy to heat and eat like mac and cheese and other nonperishable items like fruit snack packs and crackers. There are 50 students participating for the school year of 38 weeks for a total of 1900 backpacks going out in just one year with a 3 year commitment of 5700 backpacks.

“At PNL, we are about family”, stated Brian Phillips of PNL, who is actively involved with the program. “So this really does fit our business model. The fact that we are feeding 50 kids for the next 3 years is remarkable.”

Deanna Adams, also from PNL , shared how she saw kids in the hallway of the school putting on the backpacks. “It was just incredible. They were smiling and giving me the ‘thumbs up’ sign. It was great!”

“PNL with it’s great team of employees and level of community commitment has the ability to give back and to share with others, to help others to live a better life, “ said PNL’s Sean Briggs, father of three. “I can certainly relate to how important it is for kids to be well nourished so they are ready to learn.”

At CBS EcoMedia Inc., their vision is to harness the power of advertising and channel it into tangible social change. They create a relationship between a CBS platform, such as CBS radio in Dallas, a corporate sponsor like PNL and a not-for-profit organization such as Blessings in a Backpack to bring everyone together for a common cause.

Testimonials

Premier Nationwide Lending has completely exceeded our expectations in the home loan process. We are building our 3rd home and they have gone above and beyond to ensure the best loan product for our needs, as well as saved us a lot of money! When the builder’s lender said a loan was not available, Premier Nationwide Lending’s loan officer worked hard to find that it was indeed available and made it a reality for our family. Words cannot accurately express our gratitude for having been introduced to Premier. Our loan officer was a complete pleasure to work with and someone you can trust with such an important decision!

I’ve been a successful Realtor for 28 years with one of the largest firms in the country. I met a loan officer with Premier several years ago at a seminar and was very impressed with her knowledge of buyer assistance programs, etc. I referred her to several of my first time Buyers and found her to be excellent. Every client that I referred her to was pleased with the process and the service and spoke very highly of her. Her communication skills, her attention to detail, her knowledge of the process, her commitment to getting the job done in a timely manner cannot be matched. Her staff and her processer are the best. I give her name to all of my Buyers, in all price ranges, and highly recommend they talk with her about their new purchase. I have worked with many loan officers over the years and Premier is the best I’ve EVER worked with.

Thank you so much, Premier Nationwide Lending, for helping my family move into our dream home! Your hard work and dedication speaks volumes about your personal character. Although we never met in person, you still made a wonderful imprint in our hearts. Thank you for the late nights, patience, timeliness, guidance and thorough explanations throughout our first home buying experience. We definitely couldn’t have done it without you! Premier Nationwide Lending has a “Genuine” on their team, who we just so happened to be referred to. God is Good!

Carlo & Yvonne S. - Homebuyer

I cannot speak highly enough of my experience with Premier Nationwide Lending! I am still in awe of how easy these individuals made the loan process. All my questions and concerns were addressed in a timely manner with a wealth of expert knowledge. I was given the same personal attention one would expect from a local lender. You would have never known that I was working with a lender half a state away. I can say, without a doubt, that when the time comes to buy a new home I will return to Premier Nationwide Lending.
