RBD is giving back this holiday season
As real estate investors, we are allowed many freedoms. One of those freedoms is having the ability to be able to give back to the community. This holiday season, we understand the importance of charitable giving, so we partnered with two different nonprofits and we are hoping you can help.
We currently have donation bins at our office in La Mesa that will go directly to the San Diego Food Bank and Toys For Tots when our holiday drives are complete on December 14. We already have received some donations and are hoping to receive much more in the upcoming weeks!
So why is this important to us? According to the San Diego Food Bank website, “Nearly 230,000 school children in San Diego County live in low-income households and receive free or reduced-priced meals at school.
“More than 446,000 people live below the poverty level in San Diego County. That equates to a household income of less than $10,890 for an individual and $22,350 for a family of four. These individuals face “food insecurity” which means that little or no food is available at home and they do not always know where they will find their next meal.”
According to the Toys For Tots website, the objective “is to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources – our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future.”
Needless to say, it is the least we can do. There are so many children in San Diego who don’t even know where their next meal is coming from or if they will be receiving gifts like many of their peers this holiday season.
We have donated 10 bicycles for Toys For Tots, and our staff has been bringing in canned foods for the last few weeks.
We are just doing our part to try and make a difference and put smiles on faces and food in the bellies of those who need it. We would appreciate it if you could help our holiday giving initiative by bringing in your canned goods and/or new, unwrapped toys to 4495 Dale Avenue, La Mesa, CA 91941.
