Neighborhood real estate company Living Room Realty hopes to raise at least $50,000 for charity this year through its new Loving Room Fund, conceived in March as a way to foster connection, abundance and joy within the community.
Earlier this year, ten local charitable organizations presented their mission and vision to agents at Living Room Realty. The agents selected three of the organizations to receive contributions this year. The organizations chosen were P:ear, Urban Gleaners and Oregon Wild.
P:ear builds positive relationships with homeless and transitional youth through education, art and recreation. Urban Gleaners helps alleviate hunger by collecting surplus food and redistributing it to agencies that feed the hungry. Oregon Wild works to maintain environmental laws and secure legislative protection for Oregon wilderness.
“Giving back is a big part of our value system, and we wanted to create a way to engage our community and share that joy with our clients,” said Cristen Lincoln, Living Room broker. ”Since March, we’ve raised over $10,000 for our chosen partners. With the Loving Room Fund, we hope to continue to inspire more giving and bring awareness to these amazing non-profit organizations.”
At the end of every transaction, clients will have the opportunity to choose one of the organizations to receive the $50 minimum donation from the agent. The funds are distributed to the charities on a quarterly basis. Stop by the Living Room Realty neighborhood location in the Alberta arts district or visit www.livingroomre.com to learn more.
