Several shelter-related charities are getting a boost this new year thanks to members of the Realtors Association of Hamilton-Burlington (RAHB).
The organization says it donated more than $50,000 to 20 local shelter-related charities over the holidays to help fund renovations, organizational needs and closing funding gaps for current or new programs.
Among the 20 charities set to benefit are Carpenter Hospice, Habitat for Humanity – Hamilton, Ellen Osler Home and Good Shepherd.
“This grant from RAHB will help provide families at the Good Shepherd Family Centre access to healthy breakfasts and snacks along with the education and tools they need to live a healthy lifestyle,” Grace Baldwin, director of the Good Shepherd Family Centre, said in a press release.
The funds will be distributed through the Ontario Realtors Care Foundation on behalf of RAHB.
