Ottawa REALTORS® Give $18,260 to Covid-19 Stressed Charities
As Covid-19 continues to put pressure on the province’s already stretched shelter system, Members of the Ottawa Real Estate Board (OREB) are pleased to be able to support seven charities in our local community by providing $18,260 in emergency grant funding to assist with service continuity. This funding is part of a $480,000 donation made by the Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA) that will be distributed by the Ontario REALTORS Care® Foundation (ORCF) to shelters, food banks and shelter-based charities.
