Green Light Real Estate Celebrates The Holidays By Giving
Montpelier, Vt. - Green Light Real Estate will host a Holiday Food Drive from November 18, 2022, to December 14, 2022. Anyone can come to our office at 63 Barre Street in Montpelier to donate non-perishable food items or toiletries and enter to win one of five gifts specially picked out from some of our favorite Central Vermont businesses.
As the holiday season gets into full gear and the snow starts to fall, the Green Light family finds that we have much to be grateful for. We've opened three offices and recently moved our Montpelier office to a larger location. Our agents, old and new, are excelling and helping the people of Central Vermont to purchase and sell properties across the area. The Green Light Real Estate family continues to expand and grow, and to celebrate these successes, we are giving back to the community that has supported us over the last ten years.
This year we're collecting non-perishable food items to aid the organizations that are tackling our state's growing food insecurity problem. As of 2021, 13.5 million households in the U.S were food insecure, and 5.1 million households had inadequate food security. A University of Vermont study found that nearly 30% of Vermont households have been food insecure since COVID-19, and about a third of that population were newly food insecure. Hosting this drive lets us give back to the community in a way that allows us to continue fulfilling some of our core commitments.
"Supporting our community, local businesses, and local initiatives is extremely important to us. Our business invests heavily in Vermont towns, and we understand that our business thrives when our towns thrive." notes Ray Mikus, Green Light Real Estate's principal broker.
"We make it a point to work with and refer local businesses to our clients when buying and selling homes. We understand that you get better and more personalized products and services when you go local, and it’s also a Core Value of our company. We understand that supporting local businesses translates to bolstering our community and decreasing the number of food insecure families in Central Vermont."
You can drop your goods off at our Montpelier office on 63 Barre Street. There will be a drop-off box on the front porch. While you're there, you can enter the contest by filling out the form or scanning the QR code. If you see our Realtor On Duty sign--come in and say hi!
