National Garage Sale for Shelter May 11, 2013
De-clutter for a Cause
Need motivation to get started on your spring cleaning? What if you knew the pile of books collecting dust in your basement and that extra blender at the back of your cupboard could help change someone’s life for the better?
The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation’s signature fundraising event is the National Garage Sale for Shelter, a one-day charity garage sale held at hundreds of Royal LePage offices and other community locations across Canada. All proceeds from the event support local women’s shelters and violence prevention programs.
The 5th Annual National Garage Sale for Shelter takes place on May 11, 2013. Bringing community members together with Royal LePage brokers, agents and staff, proceeds will support women’s shelters that offer safety and resources to thousands of women and children who escape domestic violence each year. A special thank you goes out to our extraordinary sponsors: TD Canada Trust Mobile Mortgage Specialists (National Presenting sponsor), Atlas Van Lines Canada (In-kind Moving and Transportation sponsor) and Your Commission Today (Major Event sponsor). Their generous support and unparalleled commitment to our cause make this event possible.
Since the launch of the National Garage Sale for Shelter in 2009, $1.2 million has been raised to fund women’s shelters across Canada. The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation also supports prevention and education programs that help stop the cycle of family violence and help youth to develop healthy relationships. Royal LePage covers that administrative costs of the Shelter Foundation and sponsors cover event expenses so 100% of all funds raised goes directly to the cause. Members of the community are encouraged to get involved. You can help abused women and their children by donating gently used items to a participating Royal LePage office in your neighbourhood. Many National Garage Sale for Shelter locations also offer children’s activities, entertainment and a BBQ lunch in order to raise additional funds for their local shelter. Be sure to visit a National Garage Sale for Shelter in your area and pick up some treasures of your own. You’ll feel good knowing you are restoring hope and helping to create new beginnings for women and children in your neighbourhood.
Giving back to the community is a core value at Royal LePage. Since the inception of the Shelter Foundation in 1998, Royal LePage agents, brokers and staff have raised more than $14 million to help stop family violence. In addition to events like the National Garage Sale for Shelter, Royal LePage offices organize silent auctions, golf tournaments, gala dinners and other fundraising events in support of the Shelter Foundation. Many Royal LePage REALTORS® donate a portion of their commission to the Shelter Foundation when they help a client buy or sell a home and some also volunteer their time to their local shelter.
The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation has been honoured to receive several community service awards. For more information, please contact your local Royal LePage office or visit: www.royallepage.ca/shelter or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
