The Woods Bros Realty Foundation for Giving committee starts its annual meetings today. These meetings consist of Woods Bros agents who have requested funds for the local charities with which they’re involved. Requests sometimes involve help for underprivileged children, iPads to help with learning, zoo passes, books, and much more. Friday the committee announces contributions and gives back to the community.
“The Foundation For Giving is an amazing, positive, and strong attribute of the Woods Bros Realty family,” said Managing Broker Arla Meyer. “This is one of the benefits of being an agent with the organization.”
The Foundation for Giving was started in 1987 by Pace Woods Sr, as he wanted to thank the agents who donated their time and money to local causes. Out of every closing each agent contributions to the Foundation, and the company matches the contribution. The idea from Pace Woods Sr. was to continue to give back to the communities Woods Bros serves and with whom agents are affiliated.
“Let’s be honest,” Meyer said. “Without the community and the people we are nothing. I personally can tell you listening to all the different nonprofit organizations will pull at your heart strings, but I am also so thankful and appreciative these organizations are here to help people in our communities. They are not just here to only help and support people, they help get them back to working and being able to get through the next day.”
