NEWS RELEASE

SOUTHERN GEORGIAN BAY ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS

******************************

As the pandemic continues to put pressure on the province’s already stretched shelter system, local realtors from the Southern Georgian Bay Association of Realtors (SGBAR) is supporting their local community by providing funding to assist with service continuity.

This funding is part of the Ontario Real Estate Association’s (OREA) larger donation of $520,000 to Ontario shelters and food banks, which is on top of the $480,000 donation made one year ago. The funds will be distributed through the Ontario Realtors Care Foundation (ORCF) to nearly 100 shelters and food banks across Ontario.

SGBAR Realtor members contribute monthly to the ORCF, which 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.

SGBAR was granted a COVID Relief grant totaling $5,070, which was divided equally and distributed to our eligible 2021 recipients:

  • Home Horizon in Collingwood
  • Shelter Now in Midland
  • My Friend’s House in Collingwood

All charities receiving funding are listed on RealHeart.ca, a recently launched initiative with a mission to support Ontario realtors in their work to build stronger communities across Ontario. In 2020 alone, the Foundation raised more than $1.1 million for shelter-based organizations. Today’s donation is part of OREA’s and ORCF’s longstanding commitment to helping families in need of emergency and permanent housing.

To donate to the ORCF today, visit www.realtorscareontario.ca.
