REALTOR® community service kudos
Wednesday, August 31, 2011
Looking for a community service project for yourself or for your brokerage? Consider ORRA’s program with the Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida!
ORRA's partnership with the coalition includes two opportunities to sponsor and serve meals:
- The third Saturday of every month from 7:30 a.m. until 9:15 a.m. at the Center for Women and Families (cost to sponsor is $150; six to eight individuals may volunteer and share the cost).
- The second Thursday of every month from 5:45 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. at the Women's Residential Counseling Center (cost is $170; three to four individuals may volunteer and share the cost).
The sponsorship/volunteer opportunities are ideal team-building activities for brokerages. However, individuals are also welcome to participate. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Kudos to ORRA member Debra Wingo and associates at The Selby Group, whose recent participation in a House of Heroes event improved the living conditions of a local veteran. House of Heroes is a nonprofit organization that helps military and public safety veterans with the maintenance and repair of their homes.
Kudos to ORRA member Kathy Puschmann and associates at Century 21 Professional Group, Inc., who raised nearly $17,000 for Easter Seals Camp Challenge. The camp provides campting, recreation, and respite to children and adults with all types of disabilities. The brokerage presented a fun day-long event in April that featured classic cars on display, silent auction, vendor booths, and more.
Kudos to ORRA member Richard Canelon and associates at Brokers Real Estate Group, Inc. They took advantage of ORRA’s monthly program with the Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida in May, and sponsored/served dinner at the Women’s Residential Counseling Center.
Kudos to ORRA member Maureen Golmont and fellow associates at the Longwood office of Watson Realty Corp., who collected and donated funds to Families in Transition following a segment on 60 Minutes. Families in Transition provides food and supplies to homeless children enrolled in the public schools of otherwise affluent Seminole County.
