Meaningful contribution comes in all shapes and sizes. For so many small business owners, “giving back” to the communities we serve is really at the heart of why we exist in the first place. We’re also overwhelmingly appreciative of the larger businesses and corporations showing their support locally too!
As a parent of 3 children who attended north river schools, played sports and actively participated in various community activities, I can fully relate to the seemingly endless volunteer hours and fundraising efforts. Yes, that $2.00 candy bar or $20.00 cookie dough purchase can make a difference not just on your scale! You see, while the size of the contribution may seem small, it all adds up. That’s why our office, made up mostly of Realtors live north of the river, (specifically Parrish) make sure to participate in activities benefiting our neighbors. The youth, the seniors and those less fortunate than we are, make it to the top of our must-do list each year. As realtors, our “job” is to list and sell homes. However, our collective mission is to build neighborhoods full of people who can count on one another and make a difference. We’re very proud of that mission!
From local pizza establishments and hometown grocery stores, to banks and the assorted Mom & Pop shop favorites, we are all in this together! Parents, grandparents, teachers, community leaders and YOU! We collectively have so much power to give back and to give often. A simple gesture or even a contribution of your time creates such a huge difference in the lives of many. Together, we make our community stronger!
It’s hard to believe the year is almost over. Goal setting, budget projects and year-end calculations should, when possible, include financial assistance or sweat equity to our schools and community. I’m proud to say my team is right there with you! Leslie Wells Realty is once again a drop off center for The Mayors Feed the Hungry Program thru November 20th. Let’s make it the best year ever! A heartfelt thank you to all who volunteer their time, energy and financial support to those who need it most.
Wishing everyone a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!
Saluting our Veterans and thanking them every day for their service.
