At the Property Exchange Group we like to give back! Every year we choose 3 charities that we donate to. Our REALTORS® donate a portion of each paycheck to charity and your votes decide how the funds get divided!
Operation Smile Canada
Operation Smile Canada is part of the largest volunteer-based medical charity providing free cleft surgery for children. With help from their donors, volunteers and corporate partners, they transform lives with surgeries that can take as little as 45 minutes and cost as little as $240. Every three minutes a child is born with a cleft lip or cleft palate. These children are often unable to eat, speak, or even smile. In many places, they’re shunned and rejected, sometimes abandoned by their own parents.
SAFARI (Springfield Area Farmers Aiding Relief Internationally)The SAFARI Growing The SAFARI Growing Project raises funds that are donated to the Canadian Foodgrains Bank. In 40 countries around the world, the CFGB provides food supplies in times of emergency and shortages, agriculture and livelihood training, and nutrition programs for moms and children. Donations are matched by the Canadian Government on a 4-to-1 basis (up to $25 million). SAFARI farms several plots of land in the Springfield area. Land is donated, and local farmers volunteer their time to do the field work. Expenses are lessened by donations of seed and fertilizers by agricultural supply companies. With the help of a wide range of people who “give locally to help globally”, SAFARI has been able to aid the CFGB as they work to end global hunger.
Main Street Project
Main Street Project provides a safe place of respite, shelter and support with dignity and without judgement. We help hold communities by supporting people living with addictions, homelessness, chronic and acute illness and mental and physical health issues. By addressing these principles in each individual’s journey, they contribute to the overall quality of life of our communities. Their vision is that every individual has a safe place to be and the right to self-determination.
