Each member of the Southern Georgian Bay Association of REALTORS® (SGBAR) contribute monthly through the Every REALTOR® Campaign. The Ontario REALTORS Care® Foundation acts on behalf of Ontario REALTORS® in funding shelter-related charities across the province. Shelter is defined as a refuge, haven, or protection that provides or improves quality of life from hunger, the elements, physical/psychological abuse, disabilities, and illness.
As a result, SGBAR was granted Emergency funding totalling $4,780 to distribute to our local shelter-related charities that are currently not receiving funds from the Government to support COVID-19 relief efforts. This funding is part of a $480,000 donation made by the Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA) that will be distributed by the Ontario REALTORS Care® Foundation to shelters, food banks, and shelter-based charities.
We are pleased to announce a total charitable donation of $4,780 was granted to the below recipients to assist with the financial burdens as a result of the pandemic:
– Hospice Huronia in Penetanguishene
– Hospice Georgian Triangle/Campbell House in Collingwood
“During these times, the health and safety of our communities is at the forefront.” said Mike Scholte, President of SGBAR. “Even in a time of physical distancing and isolation, community has never been more important and we are grateful to have this opportunity to provide funding to those in need to contribute to the relief efforts of our communities.”
