Royal LePage Niagara Real Estate Centre shares “Hampers of Hope” with local shelters

Royal LePage Niagara Real Estate presented 150 hampers to three local organizations serving abused women and their children in local communities. These “Hampers of Hope” were assembled by members of the company, their business partners and clients, all of whom put great thought into the theme and contents of their hamper.

Brenda Walker, a sales representative from the Royal LePage Niagara Smithville office was the driving force behind Hampers of Hope, with the full support of the Royal LePage Niagara Management team and her colleagues.

“We were moved when a mother who received a Hamper of Hope in our 2013 campaign contacted the office to ask where she could pick up a hamper to fill and give back,” said Walker. “It’s important to hear those sorts of stories and it keeps us going.”

Along with the Hampers, funds totaling over $31,000 collected from agents who donate a portion of their commissions to the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation were presented to Gillian’s Place in St. Catharines, Women’s Place of South Niagara in Niagara Falls and Welland, and West Niagara Second Stage Housing in Beamsville.
