It’s been an exciting and busy week here at Give Realty. In the past week we have made four donations, helping us to achieve three different milestones in the process.
First, we donated $782.00 to SafePlace on behalf of Denise Irizarry. Not only did this donation provide 3 days of operating costs for the school that the children of domestic violence victims attend while at SafePlace, but it helped us reach two exciting milestones. With this donation, SafePlace became the nonprofit to receive the most charitable donations from our clients – $9,573.90 over the past five years.
This donation also represents the first transaction and donation for agent Sarka Mraz, the newest addition to the Give Realty Team. Congratulations Sarka! From what we hear, making this donation and touring SafePlace was a very special experience for Sarka – but we will let her tell you all about it herself in a few weeks.
Donations two and three consisted of $2,237.50 to The Care Communities on behalf of Kim and Carol Johnson and $1,949.25 to Camp For All on behalf of Dave and Kelsey Campbell.
Our final donation in the past week was $1,248. 75 donated to the food pantry at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, on behalf of Dave Johnson & Kathy Raesz. This donation provided for 2 semi-monthly food pantry orders, each consisting of 30 loaves of bread, 30 gallons of milk, 30 dozen eggs and around 35 cases of canned foods. It also helped us to reach a third milestone.
With this donation, Give Realty exceeded the very exciting milestone of $250,000 in total donations made to nonprofits on behalf of our clients since our founding in July of 2008!
To say that this has been a wonderful week for all of us would be an understatement. We want to thank each and every person who helped make these milestones possible – we couldn’t have done it without you! We also want to let you know that we are just gearing up; look for many more donations and milestones in our future.
