You know what they say...

You hear it every year, the old adage, "'It is better to give than to receive." You may brush it off as an old saying, but this year RE/MAX Real Estate Team found how wonderful it was to take joy in someone else's joy. Our clients and friends joined us by putting gifts under our tree of giving for the Loaves and Fishes program (unaccompanied/ homeless youth). Baskets were made with these gifts and given to the 120 unaccompanied youth in the program. Besides food and gifts, each kid also received nearly $50 in gift cards to places like Subway, Safeway, or Walmart to keep them fed throughout the holidays. We can't thank our clients and friends enough for helping us take on this project and getting into the giving spirit!

Remember when we went on the ladies retreat and made all of those tamocas? Well, yesterday Haley wrapped them all, grabbed Monica as her sidekick, and headed off to Grande Ronde Retirement Residence and Evergreen Health and Rehabilitation Center to play Santa.

Haley was excited to see her tree from the Festival of Trees in the lobby of Grande Ronde Retirement Residence!

As a Christmas gift to our clients, we decided to donate to the The Shelter from the Storm Safe House this year. In case you missed it in The Observer, here is our Christmas card to all of our clients and friends:

From all of us at RE/MAX Real Estate Team, we truly hope you have a magical Christmas filled with great company, fun, and giving!

The Festival of Trees

Haley spent the weekend a couple of weeks ago at the Festival of Trees! The theme of Haley's tree was "Going Green!" Haley described her tree as, "A green tree decorated with vibrant green and silver decorations with an assortment of environmentally friendly gifts underneath!" $24,450 was raised for the Soroptomists from the live auction alone, not including tickets, the silent auction and raffle.

RE/MAX Real Estate Team also donated a wreath. The theme was "A Night Out in Union County" and it featured dinner and dessert gift cards, movie tickets, and EOU basketball tickets- everything needed for a fun night out!

Here is our wreath awaiting the event in our back room!

Thank you to all who attended this fun event! Happy Holidays!
