The South Metro Denver REALTOR® Association (SMDRA) and its caring members recently collected hundreds of toys, gift cards, and raised more than $9,000.00 for the Boys and Girls Club of Metro Denver during the association’s Fifth Annual Holiday Brunch and Toy Drive held Friday, December 6, 2019 at SMDRA’s Centennial headquarters. On December 12th, a moving truck filled with the toys was presented to representatives of the Boys and Girls Club and the Together 4 Colorado Toy Drive at the Kings Soopers at Colorado Boulevard and Yale Street.
Net proceeds from SMDRA’s Holiday Brunch and Toy Drive went towards the purchase of additional toys for the Boys and Girls Club. Those attending the presentation of toys included members of SMDRA’s Board of Directors and its Charities and Community Involvement Committee. The event was featured on the Channel 4 News broadcast at noon on December 12th. SMDRA attendees included Heather Hankins, SMDRA’s Chairman of the Board; Melissa Maldonado, Chief Executive Officer of SMDRA, plus other members of the association’s board and committee volunteers
“The annual toy drive to benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Metro Denver is one of our favorite endeavors each year,” said Hankins. “The club’s mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need the organization most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. The Boys and Girls Club of Metro Denver is dedicated to providing a world-class club experience that assures success is within reach of every young person who enters its doors, with all members on track to graduate from high school with a plan for the future, demonstrating good character and citizenship, and living a healthy lifestyle. SMDRA is proud to support such a worthwhile organization.”
