It’s almost time to go back to school. Remember the excitement of getting school supplies to begin the school year with a fresh start?
Freedom Mortgage is taking the opportunity to thank our military just in time for the new school year. The power of a new backpack builds self-esteem and makes going back to school more fun.
Freedom Mortgage and Team Freedom Cares are collecting backpacks from Monday, July 21st through Friday, July 25th for the second annual Backpack to School collection program.
Backpacks will be donated to military children in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Indiana via the United States Organization(USO), the premier caregiver for US troops and their families since 1941. Last year’s Team Freedom Cares collection donated 127 backpacks to military families.
Backpack Donation Guidelines

Collection boxes will be set up in the larger Freedom Mortgage offices and branches. If you’d like to donate a backpack, please make drop it off at your nearest Freedom Mortgage location or have it arrive by July 28th to:
