My team of Chandler real estate agents and I are very lucky to be able to live and work in this beautiful area of Arizona. This community has given so much to us. Now we want to give something back.
We have selected two charities that do wonderful work. I am thrilled to be able to support them and to tell you a little about them.
The first is the Hope Women's Center, which serves vulnerable women and teen girls in the East Valley, Phoenix, and Coolidge. The Center offers mentoring, counseling, pregnancy testing and education in crucial life skills, including parenting, money management, dealing with anger and learning how to forgive. Clients earn points for each class attended, which they can use to "buy" clothing, diapers, toiletries and other useful items in the Center's Resource Room.
You can help by donating much-needed everyday essentials, such as laundry detergent, toilet paper and shampoo. Every month I will post a new updated list of the items the Women's Center needs on my Real Estate Chandler website and Facebook page.
We hope that you will join me, Cathy Carter, and my team of Chandler real estate agents in helping the Hope Women's Center help our vulnerable neighbors.
The second charity I want to tell you about is Birthdays Remembered, which believes every child deserves a wonderful birthday, even if their caregivers are unable to buy gifts for them. Birthdays Remembered provides birthday gift packages for any Arizona children whose needs have been identified by a partner agency. The charity gives the packages directly to parents or caregivers to give to the child, so that the child doesn't have to know that their caregivers did not purchase the gift.
Items that Birthdays Remembered needs include wrapping paper, gift bags and books for children of all ages. I will be providing a monthly list of Birthdays Remembered's current needs on my website, www.RealEstateChandler.com, and on my Facebook page. You can also call me, Cathy Carter, to find out the current location for dropping off donations.
As Chandler real estate agents, we are involved in the community every day. To those of us who see Chandler up close because of our work in real estate Chandler reveals itself as a city that is vibrant, beautiful and full of caring people. We are grateful we are able to assist those who need a helping hand by supporting these generous charities.
I have learned in my two decades in local real estate Chandler is a place where people reach out to those who need assistance. Please contact me, Cathy Carter, if you would like to learn more about the work done by Hope Women's Center and Birthdays Remembered and about the many ways you can help.
