On Tuesday, September 28th, 2010, the volunteers who worked so hard to make our May 2010 National Garage Sale such a success,happily donated the funds raised to two local women's shelters. Cheques for over $3,300 were given to the Y's Wish Foundation in Oshawa and to the Muslim Welfare Centre in Whitby. Both recipients spoke of the great need that there currently is and that the timing for receiving the donation could not have been better. While we all realize that there is still more work to be done, we were thrilled to be able to offer our contributions to both Shelters. Let's put abuse out of commission. We believe that every house should be a home.

 

 

WOW! What a Day!
National Garage Sale for Shelter

Great Deals for a Great Cause!

 

On Saturday, May 15th 2010, Royal LePage offices across Canada came together to host the second annual National Garage Sale for Shelter, with 100% of proceeds going to help women and children living with abuse.

 

The day started out cold and windy, but with a small army of agents, admin and management staff we began unloading our bounty of donations. It seemed a never-ending task (thanks to the generosity of the community), but by 8:00 a.m. we had just about unloaded every last item! Shoppers began to arrive before the unloading was complete, but we were ready for them! A steady stream of shoppers kept us busy all day, and we were excited to see so many things leaving the parking lot ~ customers happy with their found treasure. We were just as excited to share the mission of The Shelter Foundation and let everyone know just where their dollars were going.

 

Rounding out the atmosphere was our delectable Baked Goods Table, which began the day groaning under the weight of the donated goodies and finished the day with just crumbs as evidence of what had been! Shopping was interrupted with breaks to enjoy a hot dog or freshly popped kettle corn.

 

While the weather never really came through for us that day, our shoppers, our volunteers and all those who spread the word about the garage sale truly did! We finished the day raising $6,683.80 and every penny will go to help local community shelters.

 

Our thanks to each and every one of you who took some time out of your Saturday to support our Foundation. We truly believe that every house deserves to be a home and we are working to put abuse out of commission!

 

 

 

Our agents and management are proud supporters of our Royal LePage Shelter Foundation. Each year the foundation helps more than 30,000 women and children because we believe every house deserves to be a home.


Let’s put abuse out of commission!


The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation is Canada’s largest public foundation dedicated exclusively to funding women’s shelters and violence prevention and education programs.

 

Because we believe in the importance of giving back to the community, Royal LePage is the only Canadian real estate company to have our own charitable foundation. All of the administrative costs of the Shelter Foundation are underwritten so that 100% of every dollar donated goes directly to helping our cause.

 

Royal LePage real estate agents and their clients are working to create safer homes and safer communities by contributing more than $10 million since 1999 to help women and children across Canada. Through donating a portion of their commission on the purchase or sale of your property, our agents are helping bring hope and provide shelter for those who need it most.

 

Our brokers, agents and staff also provide volunteer time and in-kind goods, and hold special community events to help raise funds and awareness to end family violence for more than 30,000 women and children who take refuge in a shelter each year.
