On December 9, Robinson Sotheby’s International Realty made a $3,500 donation to the Freestore Foodbank in Cincinnati on behalf of all our agents and staff. December 9 was Freestore Foodbank’s Double Dollar Day so our donation will have a greater impact on the critical services they provide to our community.
Like many others, we made the difficult decision this year to cancel our annual holiday party due to the risk associated with large indoor gatherings. Even though gathering in-person to celebrate the holidays wasn’t a possibility for us, it was important that we come together in some other meaningful and memorable way. We invited our agents and staff to get involved in choosing the charity that would receive our donation.
Using a democratic, collaborative process, we asked our agents and staff to nominate a local charity. All nominees were included on our official ballot and everyone at Robinson Sotheby’s International Realty had the opportunity to vote. On December 1, the ballots were counted and Freestore Foodbank, with the most votes, was selected.
Our company plans to continue supporting Freestore in 2021 through a variety of ways including volunteering, hosting food drives, and sponsoring events or programs. We look forward to sharing more stories of our commitment to community with you next year. Until then, wishing you a safe and happy holiday season and a wonderful new year.
