Lakelands Members donate over $17,800 to local charities

Quality of Life, including strong, safe communities with available housing is a foundational principle to which the over 680 REALTOR® members of The Lakelands Association of REALTORS® commit. As real estate professionals, Lakelands members are keenly aware of the importance of and the challenges experienced by shelter-based charities and food banks across our regions.

Each month, Lakelands members donate to the REALTORS Care® Ontario Foundation as part of their membership in the Association. At the end of the year, charities within each of the regions which Lakelands members serve – Haliburton, Orillia, and Muskoka – are selected to receive a share of these donations.

This year, $17,870 was distributed amongst the following organizations:

  • the Burk’s Falls & District Food Bank
  • The Lighthouse in Orillia
  • the Point in Time Centre for Children, Youth, and Parents in Haliburton
  • Cottage Dreams Cancer Recovery Initiative in Haliburton
