Danberry Realtors’ raises $67,000 to assist families
The Danberry Treasure Chest, a non-profit emergency assistance fund administered by the Toledo Children’s Hospital Foundation, raised more than $67,000 in contributions in 2013.
The Toledo real estate company, through its annual dinner auction and a combination of smaller fund raisers, has raised $500,000 in Treasure Chest contributions since its inception. This has enabled the fund to assist more than 670 families in Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan during the past 19 years. So far in 2013 the Fund has help 64 families.
Of special note and recognition this year was the Toledo Hospital Facilities Department’s contribution of $6,500 and a $4,000 donation from the employees at Johnson Controls in Holland.
“It is incredible that these groups of employees held their own fund raisers to donate to the Treasure Chest. They see the need for a special fund like this and they see the impact it has on the children and their families in times of need,” said Dick Baker, Danberry’s President, in a company release.
Danberry serves Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan with six offices including one in Oregon and 240 agents and staff. To find out more about the Treasure Chest Fund visit www.danberry.com.
