As the newsletter from Micah's Way noted, Poujade has been volunteering for at least seven years, including serving at the Lights On Program, which takes place late at night outside of Orange County Jail in southern California. Inmates are released as late as 3 a.m. in the morning and are in need of assistance.
Denis Clarke, Director of MicahCenter and author of the newsletter, said Poujade was always affable, kind and effective.
''Anyone can see the Christianity-in-action sparkling around him,'' he wrote.
When Poujade learned that MicahCenter needed a pickup truck to haul donations and serve its Outreach programs, Poujade made a large contribution to the fund, Clarke wrote.
''Then in 2017, under the banner of Micah's Way, he was inspired to gather his family in serving meals to the hundreds of people who were living under tarpaulins at the 'Flags' area in Santa Ana - the center of one of the wealthiest counties in the United States,'' Clarke noted, adding that in addition to taking the time to get to know many of the people that Micah's Way services, Poujade made sure that his family understood the problems that are associated with poverty and homelessness.
More recently, Clarke said, Poujade has helped out Micah's Way by paying for half the cost of their September Fund Raising Gala. As Clarke noted, he and everyone from Micah's Way are truly grateful for all of the support that they have received from Poujade over the years.
The fact that Poujade would spend so much time and money to support a worthy charity like Micah's Way will not surprise the many people he has worked with at Lend Plus. As reported by a company spokesperson, ''The company's core values are built on our mantra, 'Being More, Doing More, Giving More' for our clients and community, where we are always looking for a better way,'' the spokesperson noted.
''Jacques Poujade has fostered a company culture of 'it's not just a loan.' We do more than take care of our clients - we also give back to the community, where we fed over 4,500 homeless this year alone.''
