For the seventh year in a row, Village Realty has matched its employees’ fundraising efforts and donated to the Outer Banks Woman’s Club Angel Gift fund.
Now in its 29th year, the Angel Gift fund assists families and children in need right here in Dare County. Partnering with Dare County Social Services, the Woman’s Club works to make sure every child’s wishes and needs are fulfilled during this holiday season. Since 2010, Village Realty has matched every dollar that its employees raise each year, donating the sum to this worthy community charity. On December 5, Village Realty property manager Emily Lewis presented the company’s 2016 donation of $9,382 to the Outer Banks Woman’s Club on behalf of Village Realty!
In addition to the collection of $1 per day from each employee who wished to wear jeans to work, each department raised money through various events throughout the year. The rental department sold custom glass ornaments, the housekeeping department organized two yard sales, the accounting, sales, and human resources departments hosted a chili cook-off and bake sale, and the association management, maintenance and marketing departments organized a breakfast with Santa and OBX print sale.
