As we go into the Thanksgiving weekend, we wanted to say Happy Thanksgiving to everyone and also share our fun week of giving events.
On Thursday, the 19th, we had our company Thanksgiving pot luck for the Core Group Family here in the office. With all kinds of food and activities, the agents, employees and owners all gave thanks for a great year.
Then on Friday, the 20th, the company had our annual "Random Acts of Kindness" day which entailed raising $2100 that was converted into 42 - $50 gift cards from WinCo. At noon and at 5 the Core Group Realty Agents and employees as well as our lender partners got together and randomly choose people at WinCo to give the $50 gift cards too. With many tears, gratitude's and hugs, the gift cards were all handed out and 42 Boise families were giving a little extra surprise this season.
We finished the week of giving off with our other charity, Backpacks For The Homeless, with the direction of Joanie Faux. She was able to combine roughly 40 backpacks with coats, blankets, gloves, jackets, toiletries, hand warmers and more. These backpacks will be distributed to the local Idaho shelters for people that are in needs as they go out into the cold weather.
All in all a great week of thanks and giving for the Core Group Realty family. We hope this will inspire others to give and share this holiday season!
