Giving Back to the Community
We had two scooters from a tenant that unfortunately passed away in one of our units. The poor soul had no family or friends and because of this the unit sat vacant for 2 months while our staff, Social Development and the Rentalsman figured out what to do. Because there were no family or friends to claim the belongings or pay the outstanding rent the rentalsman gave us the Ok to sell the belongings. We agreed that we should instead try to do something good rather than sell them. We sent out the word to some non-profit groups for people in need. The first one was donated to Habitat for Humanity. The second one was donated through the United Way to a local gentleman who has multiple sclerosis whose scooter was on it’s last legs. He was in tears when we gave it to him and was very appreciative.
We do a lot of good things for people in this business and a lot of it goes unnoticed so I wanted to share this story and the picture - Dave Howlett (Colpitts), Sterling Shaw (Colpitts), Mr Kennedy (the recipient ) and Jason Lejeune from the United Way.
Hope everyone had a wonderful Holidays!
