Giving Back is What we do
(Click the for sound)
Giving back is an essential pillar of Coldwell Banker Select's culture. Our communities give us so much, and it's important to us to contribute in meaningful ways in return. In just the last few years, we have donated and raised money for an incredible array of needs. Here are just some of the things we have accomplished:
* $50,000 To Select A Teacher
We donated more than $50,000 to our own Select A Teacher program to help teachers purchase necessary items for their classrooms
* Leading donor for Backpacks for Kids
We have consistently been the leading brokerage in donations to the Greater Tulsa Association of Realtor's Backpacks for Kids Program, which gives underprivileged kids backpacks filled with clothes, shoes, socks, and toiletries for school.
* Made 3,400 Christmas Child Shoeboxes
We have purchased items for and packed more than 3,400 shoeboxes filled with Christmas gifts and sent to children all over the world as part of the Operation Christmas Child program with Samaritan's Purse.
* Donated more than 5000 solar lights with Send Me International
We have collectively donated enough money to send more than 5000 solar lights to refugee camps in Rwanda that have no electricity through Send Me International. The lights keep people safe in the dangerous camps, and allow children to study for school at night.
* Donated the equivalent of 13,290 meals
The week of Christmas, we donated the equivalent of over 13,300 meals to the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma in Tulsa and the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma in Oklahoma City in our very first Food & Funds drive.
* We have raised more than $250,000 for Crossover Community Impact
CCI is an organization devoted to the growth, revitalization and education needs in underserved North Tulsa.
Helping others is part of our very core. Every bake sale we hold, every time we collect funds at our office meetings, and every time we donate our time or efforts to someone deserving, we are only doing what we do best - helping others.
This holiday season please have a safe and happy time with loved ones, and we encourage you to help your favorite charity this month if you are able, or choose from one of our favorite causes.
Peace, happiness and blessings to you and the ones you love during this very special time of year!
