Keller Williams Real Estate Agents Launch Neighborhood Food Drive
The home specialists at Keller Williams, one of the most successful real estate companies in the Unites States, have decided to canvas their neighborhoods to collect much needed food for homeless families.
Recent studies indicate that 41% of the homeless population is homeless families. The majority of these are led by single mothers with children. Keller Williams is collaborating with Hope of the Valley Rescue Mission, a leading provider of homeless services in the Valley, to address the need of homeless hungry families.
All food collected from the Neighborhood Food Drive will be used to feed single woman and children abiding at Hope of the Valley’s Genesis House, a newly established shelter for homeless moms and kids.
If you would like to participate in the Keller Williams Neighborhood Food Drive call Sharona Farhadian, (818) 632-9990, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Writers & Photographers Wanted
Are you an outgoing person who’d like to cover the “beat” of the Valley? We’re looking for experienced photographers & writers to profile local businesses in our paper. If you think this is you, shoot us an email: email@example.com.
Local Lemonade Stand Benefits Animal Shelter
A few neighborhood girls raised over $60 in two hours selling lemonade. The sweet determination of these kids was not to pocket the money but to give it to “Lucky Puppy Rescue” in Studio City. A non-profit animal shelter, Lucky Puppy is in desperate need of donations to stay open as the vet bills are over $40,000.
Thank you to all the local Tolucans who stopped at their lemonade stand and donated!
