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!
