GMAC-RFC Canada receives regional community involvement award

TORONTO, Ontario, May 01, 2006 — The spirit of community involvement is alive and kicking at GMAC-RFC Canada as the company on April 26 in Mississauga, Ont., received a top regional award for the volunteer efforts of its 150 associates.

GMAC Residential Funding of Canada and Mortgage Intelligence-part of the ResCap family-received the Volunteer Centre of Peel's 2006 Corporate Sun Award for excellence in employer volunteerism. Peel is a regional municipality west of Toronto and includes Mississauga, where GMAC-RFC Canada has an office.

"The Corporate Sun Award is such an honour as it acknowledges all of our employees' tremendous efforts in making a difference in our communities and defining the true meaning of community spirit," said Charlotte Sykes, Mortgage Intelligence's coordinator of marketing projects and events. In addition, Cameron Beheshti, senior legal counsel for GMAC-RFC Canada, was honored at the same event with a Volunteerism Award for his work with the Family Education Centre of Peel. For that group, Beheshti has served various roles including educator and board member. Last year, he received GMAC-RFC's Return on Involvement Award for his work with the group.

Following our hearts
Thirteen companies were candidates for the Corporate Sun Award. Each was nominated by regional non-profit agencies for their strong vision, leadership and achievement in employer-sponsored volunteerism. GMAC-RFC Canada was nominated by Brampton-based Family Education Centre, which provides parent education and support to area families.

Sykes said GMAC-RFC was singled out for its unique model that "follows the hearts" of its associates. GMAC-RFC associates have donated their time and money to many different organizations through the Volunteer Centre of Peel.

GMAC-RFC Canada associates who attended the awards ceremony were: Hanieh Akbari, Cameron Beheshti, Angela Barrett, Ed Boland, Melissa Saxon, Charlotte Sykes, Lalita Ramos, Dorothy Ceolin and Jennifer Sweete.
