a Light on Calgary Drop-In Centre’s Work with City’s Unhoused
CALGARY, AB – Justin Havre & Associates of RE/MAX First raised nearly $225,000 for Calgary partner charities in 2022, and individual team members accounted for more than 180 volunteer hours to an important local cause – the unhoused. Giving Back with Gratitude, the real estate team’s annual fundraising commitment has raised almost $1 million for Calgary’s sick kids, first responders and at-risk youth since 2014.
Justin Havre & Associates was also the most committed volunteer group of Calgary Drop-In Centre in 2022, giving more than 180 hours of time to the facility to help with various tasks during lunch service, plating food in the kitchen and serving filling and well-balanced meals to guests in the shelter.
“We embrace the high-value work of Calgary Drop-in Centre,” says Team Leader Justin Havre. “The need for permanent housing is more urgent than ever. Calgary’s unhoused and hungry population deserves care, compassion, and a sense of belonging. As a real estate team, we chose to volunteer and donate meals to feed anywhere between 400-600 guests in need each month. This is a largely ignored segment of Calgary, and it has become one of the important charities to which we will eagerly volunteer our time every year.”
Justin Havre & Associates’ grateful advisors and staff worked tirelessly in 2022 to help the 100,000 kids and families who rely on the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation through the Children’s Miracle Network (becoming #1 RE/MAX contributor Team in Canada to the Children’s Miracle Network), as well as Calgary’s first responders overcome mental, physical, social and economic challenges through Legacy Place Society, and Calgary Children’s Foundation that helps at-risk kids living below or on the poverty line.
All three organizations will share in the $225,000 raised on their behalf in 2022.
