Ruoff Home Mortgage and its staff are much more than just a mortgage company—they truly care about homeowners, their neighbors, fellow local businesses, and especially building their communities. Here's just a little taste of the holiday cheer being spread by the Ruoff branches and headquarters.

Ruoff Headquarters

The Ruoff Home Mortgage corporate headquarters in Fort Wayne, Indiana, contributed towards Coats for Kids Volunteer Center. They are also working with the Salvation Army Angel Tree Program and have adopted two families.

Ruoff HQ loves to celebrate holidays! The HR team is once again heading up a secret Santa exchange this year, as well as having a "Deck Your Walls" contest, ugly sweater party and more—and they're encouraging Ruoff's 50+ branches and remote employees to participate in the holiday cheer, too!

Rochester, MI Branch

Ruoff's Rochester branch feels honored and privileged to be able to serve many local military families in various fashions this year, but one family is very near and dear to their hearts: a young military couple and their four children they've adopted this Christmas. 

The Rochester team is still in need of donations to help make this Christmas the best ever for this family. All donations are welcome at their office—clothes, toys, food, gift cards, etc. Check out their Facebook post to see the list of needs.
