Seven food banks have benefitted from generous real estate agents in the Fraser Valley.
The Fraser Valley Real Estate Board has donated $25,000 on behalf of its members to local food banks in the region, the seventh year that they have supported the cause.
“Fraser Valley Realtors are honoured to once again support our local food banks,” said Gopal Sahota, President of the FVREB. “Through their ongoing efforts, these seven organizations provide incalculable support to families and individuals in our communities.”
The donation was split between the recipients based on the number of Realtors in each community, with Surrey receiving the largest share at $10,500.
“The Surrey Food Bank is very grateful to the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board for supporting us and other local food banks throughout the region,” commented Feezah Jaffer, Executive Director at the Surrey Food Bank. “This continued generosity is a wonderful example of how community supporters can connect with local organizations for the benefit of our low-income neighbours who are struggling to feed their families and face life’s greatest challenges.”
