The COVID-19 pandemic has brought significant financial hardships for many people across Ontario. Vulnerable populations in particular are struggling more than ever, as local shelters, charities and food banks face increased demand, new procedures and outbreaks.
Our neighbours and communities need our support more than ever.
The Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA) is proud to announce that we are donating $480,000 to Ontario shelters and shelter-based charities through the Ontario REALTORS Care® Foundation(ORCF). This money will go to supporting more than 50 charities across Ontario.
The funding will be distributed by the Ontario REALTORS Care® Foundation, an organization that has supported shelter-based organizations throughout Ontario since 1977 and receives its funding through the generosity of Ontario’s REALTORS®. In 2019 alone, the Foundation raised more than $1.2 million for shelter-based organizations. This donation is part of OREA’s and ORCF’s longstanding commitment to helping families in need of emergency and permanent housing.
As REALTORS®, we are deeply connected to our communities and the people who live in them everyday. As one of the most civically engaged professions in Ontario, REALTORS® want to ensure that everyone in our community has a safe place to live and food on the table during these difficult times.
Thank you, Ontario REALTORS®, for always showing our communities Real Heart!
