The membership of Peterborough and the Kawarthas Association of REALTORS® (PKAR) are committed to supporting local shelter-based charities through our Professional Association, our Brokerages and personally. Each year our Association organizes and hosts various fundraising activities that raises money in support of our annually selected charities.
As a result of the ever-changing COVID-19 state of emergency, PKAR has been unable to implement on our fundraising strategies for our 2020 selected charity, The Mount Community Centre. We recognize that is it the most vulnerable in our community who are most in need so, by working with the Ontario REALTORSCare® Foundation, PKAR has been able to facilitate the allocation of funds to help offset these missed fundraising opportunities and still provide support.
“It is with great pleasure that I announce that The Mount Community Centre will be receiving $4,580 in funding from the Ontario REALTORSCare® Foundation” says PKAR President Chiarina Payne. “PKAR made a commitment to The Mount Community Centre when we selected them as our 2020 charity, and we wanted to ensure they did not suffer financially because of the COVID-19 crisis”.
“The Mount Community Centre is extremely thankful for the generosity of the REALTORSCare® Foundation during this unprecedented time. We are grateful for our relationship with the Peterborough and the Kawartha’s Association of REALTORS®, and thankful that PKAR considered TMCC and the wellbeing of our residential tenants during COVID-19.” says Andi van Koeverden, Director of Strategic Advancement at The Mount Community Centre.
PKAR hopes to resume their fundraising efforts as soon as possible, at the advisement of both the Provincial and Federal guidelines surrounding COVID-19.
