The Lakelands Association of Realtors donates over $105,000 to those in need across the region

Recently, The Lakelands Association of Realtors (Lakelands) and its members identified greater challenges being faced by many in the region, especially those relying on shelters and food banks for support.

To respond to this growing need, the organization and its members increased its giving — to the tune of nearly $106,000 in financial contributions — to over 25 regional charities and shelter-based food banks and charities. These organizations are using the funds to provide shelter, food and assistance to those experiencing homelessness or food insecurity. 

The fundraising was made via initiatives like the annual Every Realtor campaign, to which realtor members make monthly contributions, the Lakelands Annual Turkey Challenge and the Tragic Relief fund.

Lakelands president Matthew Lidbetter comments: “At the Lakelands, we believe in the power of local community and the importance of supporting one another, especially during the holiday season. This year, we’re pleased to extend our helping hand to those facing hardship by contributing almost $106,000 to shelter-based charities and food banks. We hope these efforts bring comfort, and a sense of community to those in need.”
