Team Schaumburg: Royal United Mortgage LLC Gives Back
Like you, I take great pride and pleasure in being part of the Royal United Mortgage LLC family where we give back to our community! A great example of this was a recent visit from the Schaumburg team to assist an ADOPT pet shelter. We all know that at Royal United Mortgage LLC we touch people’s lives on daily/hourly basis and make a difference by helping them finance/refinance. In this case it was pretty cool to see that we can also contribute to improving the lives of our extended family (our pets) by providing service at the shelter.
We helped the shelter by removing tarps in the yard and getting the cute pets ready for winter (oh and by the way, they do not like the Chicago weather during winters L). To help them keep warm we put stuff like warmer beds/blankets around the shelter to make it cozy for them J. We also made sure the pools (wow even pets have pools???) went in the shed till next summer. Then we arranged closets in kitchen and made sure it was easy for them to find stuff and at same time creating more room for them to use. After the heavy listing was done we got chance to visit more than 30 adorable dogs and more than 40 cute cats. By the time we got done visiting them I had eyed more than 20 pets I wanted to adopt right away. I have visited few other shelters but honestly this was the best. They have made it so cozy for pets there and it did not look like shelter at all. Pets seemed healthy and happy there. They had best furniture for them- great couch, bed, water fountain, toys and lots more. I really was a little confused by the time I had walked around, thinking, “Am I really in a shelter??”
Being a part of this wonderful event was a great experience! As our mission statement says, “we exist to enrich and change lives” and that’s what I felt walking out of the shelter.
Our work didn’t go unnoticed as evidenced by this email I received the next day from them stating , “Thank you so much for your volunteer help on Friday! The patio and kitchen looked awesome and everyone appreciated your hard work. Our shelter can only run with the help of dedicated people like you who want to make a difference for the animals. Thank you for getting involved and donating your time to us.” This indeed feels like getting the best review after we close a loan for a customer!!! Proud to be part of this great impact.
