Holiday Parties, the Economy, and Food Pantries

By
Real Estate Agent with Maxfield Real Estate

We at Maxfield Real Estate in the three offices (Wolfeboro, Center Harbor and Alton) around the Lakes Region of New Hampshire voted unanimously to do away with our traditional Holiday Christmas Party and donate the money that would have been spent to the food pantries in the towns our offices reside in. With the economic hardship so many are facing and the food banks running consistently low on food, it is another reason why working at Maxfield Real Estate and the men and women there once again showed that we care about our communities.

Maxfield Real Estate has a We Care Program that has for many years donated a portion of every commission to a local non-profit of the buyer's or seller's choice. In 2008 over $50,000 was turned over to these non-profits.

Wishing you all Happy Holidays!

It would be nice if more offices do the same thing. Thanks for the post.

Hi Steve,

Our office, RE/MAX 1st Olympic in Lynchburg, VA voted to do the same thing.  We are donating either Money or Games & Sports Equipment to a Children's Group Home in Bedford, VA. 

And last night at our annual Lynchburg Association of Realtors Holiday Gala - you could only purchase a Raffle Ticket for some great prizes with a Toy (Toys for Tots), a gently used coat, or $10.00 that is going directly to the Lynchburg Area Food Bank!  It was called an Evening of Giving - and it was a huge success!!  A fun time was had by all!!

Have a great day!  Kathy Carson
