Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices FNR Supports Be an Angel Campaign
By: Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices FNR
The company's Metro Offices of Avondale/Ortega and San Marco/San Jose took part in Family Support Services of North Florida's annual Be an Angel holiday drive, an effort to make Christmas extra special for First Coast children in out-of-home care. Angels buy gifts from a child's wish list or make a monetary donation so that the children receive Christmas presents they would not otherwise be able to enjoy this time of year.
Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty Realtor Kimberly Waterhouse managed the real estate firm's campaign. With the support of the Metro team, she collected and purchased gifts to make Christmas wishes come true for 40 children in foster care. Additionally, Waterhouse secured a $14,000 donation from the Gray Charitable Trust to provide Christmas presents to 40 foster children in the Independent Living program. Family Support Services of North Florida is the lead community-based care agency for foster care and adoption in Duval and Nassau counties.
"We are so proud of our Metro team and their support of the Be an Angel initiative to ensure all children have a gift under the tree this Christmas," said Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty CEO Kevin Waugaman. "Our company is committed to making a positive difference in the lives of many local children and families, and we are grateful to be in business with such dedicated, talented and passionate professionals."
"Family Support Services is extremely grateful to Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty for its efforts securing donations for our Be an Angel holiday drive," said Octavius Davis, Family Support Services of North Florida's Marketing Communications Manager. "The gifts will mean the world to those receiving them, and we are so appreciative of the generosity demonstrated to our children in care."
