We wouldn’t be able to do all we do without the unwavering support from our partners and sponsors. We’re so lucky that Royal United Mortgage happens to be both! They are an amazing sponsor and one of our most creative and involved partners. They tie their employees to our mission in a unique and meaningful way.

Royal United Mortgage Compliance Team Lead and School on Wheels volunteer, Curt Ritchie said of his experience with us,

“Tutoring with School on Wheels has become a very important part of my life over the last 2+ years, something I would have never anticipated when I started.  The experience is consistently rewarding for me and it amazes me how much I get out of only an hour a week.  Simply put, the worst days I have are always made better when I leave tutoring, and I only hope the kids I get to work with receive a small portion of what I do from our time together.”

It’s for this reason and many more that we are so pleased to have such a wonderful partner that has been consistently supporting our mission since 2007. Not only have they been a major sponsor at the Education Celebration for the past three years, but they’ve also been sure to put our programs and our kids in the spotlight in so many ways.

During the Education Celebration, we displayed student artwork. This collaborative piece of art ended up framed and hanging in the headquarters of Royal United Mortgage. This eye-stopping piece not only celebrates our students and the connection Royal United has to our organization, but also generate wonderful awareness for our mission.

During RUN(317), a 5K benefitting School on Wheels this June, Royal United generated employee support so that we could fill critical volunteer roles. They provided nearly 40 volunteers to help our event go off without a hitch. In addition to volunteers, Royal United employees joined the more than 1,300 registered runners that made this event a true success.

Most recently, Royal United supplied over 100 brand new backpacks and filled them with school supplies for our kids. This support has been critical. As our kids go back to school, it is important for them to be well-prepared and confident.

Thank you to Royal United Mortgage for their amazing support!
