Members of Woods Bros Realty’s Foundation for Giving committee recently gave out $18,750 to local charity organizations.
The Woods Bros Realty Foundation for Giving was established in 1987 by Pace Woods, Sr. to support those less fortunate in local communities. Every time a Woods Bros Realty sales professional closes one side of a transaction, the agent makes a contribution to the Foundation, which is then matched by the company.
In late fall, a committee of agents, selected by their offices to serve two-year terms, reviews all the requests and determines funding. A Woods Bros agent or employee must sponsor each request accepted by the Foundation. Since the inception of the Woods Bros Realty Foundation for Giving, more than $312,000 has been donated.
“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.”
Some companies who were helped by the Foundation for Giving in 2014 include Capital Humane Society, CASA for Children, CEDARS Youth Services, Child Advocacy Center, Food Bank of Lincoln, Foundation for Lincoln City Libraries, Friendship Home of Lincoln, Grand Island Habitat for Humanity, Heartfelt Children’s Memorial, Hope Harbor, Inc., Huntington Holiday Headquarters, Leadership Lincoln, Lincoln Children’s Zoo, Lincoln Community Foundation, Lincoln Community Playhouse, Lincoln Kids Against Hunger, Seward Youth Center, The BAY, Young Life, and YMCA of Lincoln.
