Sutton Group – Professional Realty was among the top fundraisers in “Nova Scotia’s Biggest Potluck.”
On October 21 and 22, people across Nova Scotia hosted potluck meals where guests were asked to remember those less fortunate. Monetary and food donations were collected for Feed Nova Scotia, a non-profit organization that distributed 1.8 million kilograms of food to more than 43,000 food bank users in 2015.
“Our office jumped on board with this event and quickly raised $1,300,” says Jennifer Morrison, Managing Associate Broker. “The ‘cost’ to attend was one dish to share at the potluck plus either a monetary or food donation for Feed Nova Scotia. It was a huge success! Our REALTORS® and staff gave much more than expected.”
In addition to $1,300 in cash, the office collected 65 kilograms of nutritious, non-perishable food.
The donations from this Sutton office contributed to the province-wide event total of $20,175 for Feed Nova Scotia.
