This year, SGBAR REALTORS® and Brokerages set a record by donating more than $17,000 to provide 853 turkeys to local families in need. Each year, the Southern Georgian Bay Association of REALTORS® (SGBAR) partners with local grocers, who exchange the donations for turkey vouchers (or their choosing) of greater value. The vouchers are then distributed in Christmas hampers in our local communities, allowing families in need to enjoy a festive meal at Christmas.
As a result of the pandemic, a record number of families and individuals in need registered this year to receive a Christmas hamper to help during these difficult times.
At a time of need, Local REALTORS® and Brokerages were overwhelmingly generous with contributions to make a difference for the overall wellbeing of our communities.
The Southern Georgian Bay Association of REALTORS® represents over 600 REALTORS® registered with its member offices. The geographical area served by the Association includes the Towns of Midland and Penetanguishene, the Townships of Severn, Tay, Tiny and part of Georgian Bay Township; Wasaga Beach, Clearview Township, Collingwood, The Blue Mountains and portions of the Municipality of Meaford and Grey Highlands.
