Members of Woods Bros Realty’s Foundation for Giving committee recently gave local charity organizations $16,400 in funds raised throughout the year.
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 contribution to the Foundation, which is then matched by the company.
Each fall a committee of agents—selected by their offices to serve four-year terms—reviews all the requests and determines funding. A Woods Bros agent or employee must sponsor each request accepted by the Foundation.
“Humbling, tear jerking and inspiring,” said committee member Jayne V. Debus in a plea to Woods Bros Realty agents for additional donations. “Only a few words to describe the past two days of listening to the needs of so many less fortunate people. Thank you for all your generous giving and your time to these worthy causes.”
This year, the transaction donation total was $11,800, with a last-minute appeal from the committee that raised an additional $4,600. Since the inception of the Woods Bros Realty Foundation for Giving, more than $347,200 has been donated.
“It is so awesome to see how many organizations are out there to help our friends, family and neighbors have the most successful lives possible,” said committee member Tyler Reynolds. “What may seem insignificant to us could mean a life changing experience for someone else.”
