Oregon Wild, p:ear, Urban Gleaners and North Tillamook Library Friends benefit from Living Room Realty
Living Room Realty (1636 NW Lovejoy Street,) a real estate company specializing in Portland, Vancouver, and the North Oregon Coast is pleased to announce the Loving Room Fund raised $50,825 in its first year. The Loving Room Fund was created in March 2016 as a way to foster abundance and joy within the community.
With each real estate transaction, the Loving Room Fund collects contributions from Living Room Realty agents. Last year 10 organizations presented their missions to the agents at Living Room Realty who selected four to be the beneficiaries of the Loving Room Fund. The organizations chosen in Portland were Oregon Wild, p:ear and Urban Gleaners. Living Room Realty’s Manzanita office chose Tillamook Library Friends.
“We are so grateful for our partnership with Living Room and the Loving Room Fund,” said Tracy Oseran, executive director of Urban Gleaners. “The contributions have made a substantial impact on our Healthy Food to Hungry Kids program. Over the last year, we’ve added two more elementary school pantry sites and 3 Mobile Market sites at Section 8 housing complexes. These five sites have allowed us to feed an additional 500 kids and their families each week. The simple act of rescuing food and delivering it to people who need it is the most basic thing we can do to improve people’s lives.”
At the end of each transaction, the client receives an email about the Loving Room Fund with information about each non-profit. The client selects which organization will receive the agent’s donation. The funds are distributed to the charities on a quarterly basis.
“The company was already making donations, but agents wanted to do more, and be directly involved,” said Cristen Lincoln, a broker at Living Room Realty. “Looping in our clients to choose the charity is a brilliant way to share the joy of giving, highlight our company values and create awareness for these amazing organizations.”
