The Northern Solano County Association of Realtors is made up of real estate sales people and affiliate members. I have been an affiliate member for more than 30 years and have witnessed the association give back to local charities every single year, regardless of the market.
The Northern Solano County Association of Realtors Charitable Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to helping our community and those in need. The association’s website has listed more than 150 charities the organization helped over the past 30 years. All of these are worthy, but I thought I would point out a few of my favorites for my readers – the ones I personally love and hope you can support.
• CASA of Solano County, which provides court-appointed special advocates for our most vulnerable children. Donate or volunteer to be an advocate. Director Candy Pierce, 707-421-2272.
• The Vacaville Neighborhood Boys and Girls Club now has nine sites around Vacaville and has helped thousands of kids since it was founded in 2001. The club has grown dramatically under the dynamic leadership of CEO Anna Eaton. Some of the children’s success stories are incredible. Donate to help The Vacaville Neighborhood Boys and Girls Club grow for our kids. 707-999-5034.
• Leaven Kids provides learning centers for children planted right in the most crime-ridden neighborhoods, breaking the cycle by equipping children where they live. Leaven Kids has six locations in Fairfield, one in Suisun City, three in Vacaville and four in Vallejo and is supported by an incredible board of directors, including the president of the board, Joe Allio, retired Fairfield police chief, and members like former Mayor Len Augustine and Sheriff Tom Ferrara. CEO Mark Lillis, 855-622-KIDZ.
Children are our future and all three of these organizations reduce crime rates, which makes our community safer and our real estate market healthier.
Merry Christmas to all of you from my family and my fellow Northern Solano County Association of Realtors members and affiliates.
