Helping women and children escape violence and rebuild their lives is not something you would expect to have a real estate connection, but local women’s shelters know that it does.

Royal LePage Westwin is very active in both Barriere and Clearwater assisting many people in the real estate market, while they also give back to their communities.

Melissa Hole of Royal LePage Westwin Realty in Clearwater says, “My co-worker and I started an annual golf tournament in 2015 and it was hosted by our company foundation, The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation. Between our two offices, Royal LePage Westwin and Royal LePage Kamloops we received generous sponsors from our agents as well as business’s from Kamloops and surrounding communities; and we hosted the golf tournament at Sun Rivers Golf Course.”

Hole says that all proceeds from the golf tournament went directly to the local Women’s Shelter.

“With the last two tournaments combined we were able to donate $9500 to the local Women’s Shelter, which supports woman from all surrounding small communities and Kamloops,” said Hole.

Here is an overview of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation as provided by Hole:

“Because we are committed to strengthening the communities where we live and work, Royal LePage is the only Canadian real estate company with its own charitable foundation.

“The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation is Canada’s largest public foundation dedicated exclusively to funding women’s shelters and violence prevention programs.

“Every dollar raised goes directly to helping the more than 30,000 women and children who are served each year by the shelters and support programs we fund.

“Since 1998, the Shelter Foundation has raised more than $22 million and currently supports 200 local women’s shelters and national partners.

“Our agents donate a portion of their commissions and Royal LePage offices across Canada hold local fundraising events.

 

“Our brokers, agents and staff also volunteer and provide in-kind goods to benefit the women and children residing in their local shelters.”
