Holiday Bash 2017
Monday, December 4
On Monday December 11th, the Mortgage Bankers Association of Southwestern Pennsylvania is hosting a Holiday Bash at the Rivers Club in Pittsburgh. Independent Settlement Services is a proud sponsor.
The event will help support Play It Forward, a local Pittsburgh non-profit organization. Play it Forward Pittsburgh is a gently "loved" toy donation drive celebrating seven years of helping families in need. They are currently collecting toys for children in need for the Christmas season.
The Mortgage Bankers Association of Southwestern Pennsylvania is a regional organization representing the real estate finance industry. Our company is excited to participate in our first Holiday Bash with the Association. If you or your company are involved in real estate finance, we welcome you to join us this year!
Light of Life Rescue Mission
Monday, November 20
Thanksgiving is here again, and as usual we reflect upon that which makes us grateful. With much to celebrate, we sought a means to pay forward our gratitude for the successful year we have enjoyed together. This season, Independent Settlement Services chose to give generously to support the work of Light of Life Rescue Mission, a shelter located in Pittsburgh’s North Side.
The mission is a place of sanctuary and sustaining dignity; recognizing the innate worth in humanity and the inherent needs of the less fortunate in any society, Light of Life opens its doors and its kitchen to the hungry and displaced. Believing this to be a cause most worthy of support, the community at Independent Settlement Services gave generously and is delighted to announce that our efforts provided the funds for 289 Thanksgiving meals to families and individuals in need. We thank everyone whose work and assistance made this donation possible and express our continued gratitude to our business associates and our professional community. We wish a safe and happy Thanksgiving to all!
Did you get your flu shot yet?
Wednesday, November 15
Independent Settlement Services organized an on-site flu shot clinic at our office on the 16th of October. Don’t worry, we didn’t do it alone. We had some help from the Kmart Pharmacy and their caring pharmacist. The flu vaccine is intended to create a stronger immune system to help keep you from catching the flu virus. According to the CDC, the flu vaccination rate among all Americans was 48.6 percent last season. Our staff's participation rate for our flu shot clinic this year was about 50%, on par with the national rate.
