Lakelands Members Make a Difference with over $17,000 in donations

A strong community is a large part of the foundation for much of what we enjoy as “the good life”. As community residents themselves, the members of The Lakelands Association of REALTORS® are committed to helping to build strong communities throughout all of the areas they serve in Muskoka, Haliburton, Orillia, and Almaguin. This includes making a difference in the lives of those in need of a little extra help. Each year, The Lakelands members contribute to the REALTORS Care® foundation by working together to make a positive impact within their communities through volunteering their time and raising funds for a diverse array of causes and charities close to their hearts. This year, the monies raised through The Lakelands membership contributions, a total of $17,270, were distributed to the following organizations who work tirelessly across our regions;
