During the month of February, Paul Davis will continue to lend people, funding, equipment, care and time to worthy causes all over North America. Here’s where our people gave back over the holidays:
Adopting families in need: Paul Davis Niagara, as is their custom every year, supported the largest family participating in the Salvation Army Christmas Adopt a Family program. The office brought gifts, cheer and warmth to a needy family with four young daughters.
Brightening Lives for Seniors: Paul Davis Ottawa raised over $5000 CAD for a local long-term care facility in the community. Team members also prepared gifts and packed two cars with donations to the facility.
Preparing Meals for Hungry People: Paul Davis of West County, Missouri, pitched in at the St. Louis Area Food Bank, a charitable organization that helps around 392,000 people every year in Missouri and Illinois. The Paul Davis team along with other volunteers prepared over 3100 meals that were delivered over the holiday week.
Giving Toys to Children: Paul Davis of Omaha, Nebraska, in coordination with the Omaha Board of Realtors Affiliates Group’s 400 realtors and affiliates, participated in the Turkey Bowl, one of the biggest Toys for Tots events in the state. In Canada, Paul Davis Timmins & The Claybelt contributed to the Christmas Angel Campaign of 2020, hosted by the North Eastern Ontario Family and Children’s Services. This toy drive helped children, youth, and families within their communities.
Restocking Pantries: Paul Davis of Bloomington, Illinois, sponsored the 18th Annual “Stuff the Bus” event to help the local nonprofit Children’s Home & Aid Crisis Nursery and benefit at-risk children and families in the community. The bus parked in different locations for six days as team members collected donations to restock the organization’s pantry for the entire year.
Bringing Christmas to foster children: Paul Davis of Orlando, Florida, partnered with the local Foundation for Foster Children to adopt 10 foster children ranging in age from two to five for the holiday season. They embroidered each child’s name on a stocking and collected over 70 toys, enough to share with other foster children in the organization.
Multiplying Charitable Impacts: Paul Davis of Lexington conducted a three-week fundraiser to help fund the God’s Outreach Food Bank program in central Kentucky. Through donations and a raffle, they raised more than $1,700 USD. A local grocery store matched this amount for a total donation of $3,482 USD. The nonprofit’s program has the ability to stretch each dollar donated to equate to $12 USD in food, bringing the total impact of this fundraiser to $41,784 USD in food to be distributed in the local community.
