Picture this: after a long day at work you come home, walk through the front door of your home, throw your keys on the table, kick off your shoes and plop yourself on your sofa with a heavy sigh of relief. Feels good right?
Some of us are lucky enough to have a home to walk into…others may not be quite as fortunate. On Friday, August 9th 2013 OREA and the REALTORS Care Foundation staff alongside Habitat volunteers teamed up with Habitat for Humanity Toronto to make it possible for other families to have a home. Habitat Toronto’s motto is “Giving Toronto families a Hand Up, not a Hand Out”.
After much speculation about the weather we were happy that it cooperated and the OREA and REALTORS Care Foundation were able to paint, drill, hammer, cut and clean our way together at their east end Danforth Road site. It was a great experience to help build not only houses, but a new community for families in need!
It felt wonderful being a part of this worthwhile cause and being able to give back.
Thanks to the OREA and REALTORS Care Foundation family that participated to make this a successful build day and to Habitat for Humanity Toronto for the experience.
