Staff and Associates of KW Advantage Realty Manage to Get Much Needed Supplies Delivered Directly to the People Of Haiti
TORONTO, ONTARIO (March 4, 2010)— The devastating effects of the recent earthquakes in Haiti have been widely reported, as has the urgent need for medical and basic supplies for the millions of Haitians who have survived its aftermath. Like many other companies, Keller Williams Realty has supported relief efforts by donating money both corporately and at the local office level, but our KW Advantage office recently managed to lend their support even more personally. This past February, the Toronto office was able to collect and deliver basic
medical and food supplies directly to the people of Haiti with the help of some tremendous organizations.
The Dream Project, a US-based non-profit organization that operates out of the Dominican Republic, has managed together with a group called Hands for Haiti to deliver much needed medical and food supplies by truck-load to Port au Prince and nearby affected towns and villages.
With the sending of a single email to the associates and staff of KW Advantage Realty, the office managed to collect crate upon crate of supplies, as well as some toys, in just a matter of days. Money was even donated from the office’s KW Cares fund, a trust normally used to support Keller Williams agents and their loved ones in times of significant financial hardship, to purchase additional supplies.
In the end it took over a dozen boxes, the special cooperation of Air Canada, the aid organizations and the dedication of some very well intentioned real estate professionals to deliver these supplies and play a part in bringing relief to a country that has experienced such loss and hardship.
