Last month, members of the GBAR Charitable Grants Task Force met to review grant applications submitted by local housing groups and agencies requesting assistance from the GBREB Foundation
. As there are many worthy organizations that need financial assistance, the committee recommended 15 local, non-profit housing and homeless assistance organizations that would most benefit from receiving a grant from GBAR. The GBAR Board of Directors have approved the following organizations to receive a grant of $2,000: A Place to Turn in Natick, Allston Brighton Community Development Corp. in Brighton, Boston Sock Exchange in Wayland, Caritas Community, Inc. in Braintree, Creative Living in Andover, Family Promise Metrowest in Natick, Housing Families in Malden, Mission of Deeds in Reading, Old Colony Habitat for Humanity in Attleboro, Project Just Because in Hopkinton, RESPOND, Inc. in Somerville, and Second Chances, Inc. in Somerville. Additionally, the following organization will receive a $500 grant: Council of Social Concern in Woburn, and Newton at Home in Newton.
All recipient organizations will be recognized and honored at the 2018 GBAR Awards & Networking Breakfast
on Friday, June 22.
Please remember, when you pay your REALTOR® dues you have the option to voluntarily donate to the GBREB Foundation
