Client Gifts It’s been our custom throughout our long history to send client gifts as a way of showing our appreciation for choosing us as your mortgage subservicing partner. But we’ve made a slight change for 2020. Like you, we’re concerned about the millions of Americans who—through no fault of their own—have been challenged to pay their rent or mortgage, or feed their families. That’s why, in lieu of sending client gifts, we’ve chosen to make generous donations to our following local food banks: NJ – Mercer Street Friends Food BankAZ – St Mary’s Food BankMO – Fort Zumwalt School District Food Program And check your inbox for Cenlar’s holiday message.
