Giving back to the community has been a guiding principle at Harvey Kalles Real Estate since the company began in 1957. Today we actively support over 225 charitable organizations annually.
This past week, our staff and agents came out in droves to support Ronald McDonald House Charities Toronto, which provide a ‘Home Away From Home’ for seriously ill children and their families.Those of us living in Toronto are blessed to have a world-class facility like Sick Kids on hand to take care of our children should they require prolonged medical attention. That said, many of the families using the hospital have traveled from out of town, where suddenly they’re also forced to confront shelter and food issues, in addition to having to care for a sick child. Compounding these concerns, their child’s stay at the hospital may last weeks or months – far too long a period to divide families during such a traumatic time.
Ronald McDonald House Charities understand that for children facing a serious medical crisis, nothing seems scarier than not having loved ones close by for love and support. This wonderful facility exists to provide families a home away from home so they can stay close to their hospitalized child at little or no cost. Nothing else should matter when a family is focused on the health of their child – not where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next meal or where they will lay their head at night to rest.
At Harvey Kalles Real Estate Ltd., Brokerage, we couldn’t agree more and are very proud of how our team has banded together to support this worthwhile program. Our big thanks to our sales team for participating in this worthwhile cause.
