Because we cannot gather, we give.
This holiday season is different for all of us. In typical years our offices would be celebrating the year with a party or dinner, gathering our agents and staff together for some festive cheer. As we are currently practicing social distancing to help keep everyone safe and heathly this year we’re taking another route to spread the holiday spirit.
Typically our offices have a charitable component to help pay it forward amongst our colleagues. In light of world events, we’ve forgone the parties and events and will be donating to charities and organizations that can help those in need at this time.
In November we kicked off our charitable giving with donations and partnerships in a few offices.
Macdonald Real Estate Group donated 65 boxes of masks to the residents of the London Hotel on Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside (pictured top-left).
Our Victoria, Sidney and Vancouver Island offices donated to their local Royal Canadian Legion, The Chief & Petty Officer’s Association, and the Sovereign Order of St. John: Victoria Commandery
Macdonald Realty Vancouver – partnered with our agents and staff to raise over $25,000 for Movember! The office matched donations to reach our goal. In addition, several participants grew moustaches or walked 60km+ each for the month to help raise awareness and funds.
