Giving Back is an important part of our company culture at CIMG, and during these difficult times, supporting our community is more important than ever.
If you'd like to learn more about what we are working on, our very own Mara Bergholz and Carla Johnson sat down with 97.9 "The Hill" and Chapelboro.com to talk through our Giving Back plans for 2021! You can listen to the whole interview here.

Loan Officers Raise $32,000 for Local Restaurants
If you've spent any time with the CIMG staff, you've likely heard of F3 (Fitness, Fellowship, and Faith) - a community organization that's popular with some of our loan officers. F3 Churham wrapped up their Holiday Hometown Hope fundraiser in December, donating gift certificates from local restaurants to families in need (essentially donating each dollar twice!). We're so excited to announce that the group raised $32,000 for small businesses and families in our community! A huge thank you to everyone who donated.
You can read all about it in this piece in Chapelboro.
Giving Back to TABLE NC in December
Another great food drive is in the books! In November, our CIMG Giving Back team was able to donate 376 pounds of food to our good friends at TABLE NC. Then we returned the following week to pack everything up into meals for local families. If you're able, we ask that you consider making a donation. For more information head to their website.
