Join CMLA in Assisting Houston Relief Efforts

The following message is from Julie Piepho, CMB, CML, Past President of CMLA 2008-2009 and President of National Operations of Cornerstone Home Lending, Inc.

To all of my friends at CMLA - if you are wondering or thinking of how you can personally help all of the people affected by the hurricane in Texas, here is an easy way to make a contribution and know it will be personally delivered to people that truly need it. I know I always want to donate but hesitate to give to the large charities because I do not know WHO the monies go to. Here is another way to donate and help and know it will get to people that need the help. Thank you for your help in advance.

The following message is from Susan Barnhill, Vice President of Training with
Cornerstone Home Lending, Inc. in Houston, Texas:

So many outside the area want to help but have no idea how. Here is a suggestion: begin purchasing gift cards from Lowes, Home Depot, Walmart, or better yet simply Visa type cards. ANY denomination helps or join with others for larger increments. You may mail them to my amazing friend and leader and your former past chairman, Julie Piepho at 3406 Terry Point Drive; Fort Collins, CO 80524. Or if you have any questions or suggestions, Julie can be reached at 970-481-8007.

My church along with other churches in the greater Houston area are beginning even now to help organize shelters and clean-up efforts. We will make sure those cards are given directly to victims.

The following links will allow you to purchase gift cards online, and simply put Julie’s address in as the recipient:





Please do not purchase “egift cards” but physical cards to be shipped to Julie.
