Colourful Easter baskets filled with chocolates, candies and stuffed toys are sure to make even a sick child smile. With that in mind, volunteers from Sutton – Premier Realty recently assembled and delivered 30 baskets to the Surrey Memorial Hospital. This holiday weekend, the treats will be given out to patients on the pediatric ward and their siblings at Ronald McDonald House. This special delivery was a sweet inspiration.
“It’s amazing how many people I know who have personally benefitted from the great services Ronald McDonald House provides to families,” says REALTOR® Rob Christensen. “It was a very rewarding feeling to shop for the candy and put together the Easter baskets. Every child deserves a treat from the Easter Bunny and it’s an honour for our office to be able to help make this happen.”
This is the first time that Rob and his colleagues have hopped into this project. Just like the Easter bunny, their good works are multiplying at an astounding rate. Sutton – Premier Realty also contributes to the Surrey Food Bank and a local school, and sponsors several local families in need through the Surrey Christmas Bureau.
To fundraise for their charitable projects, Broker Larry Anderson, REALTORS® and staff hold events throughout the year including a comedy show and poker nights.
