The sixth annual companywide Giving Day will be on Saturday, March 7.

Better Homes and Gardens Mason-McDuffie’s sixth annual companywide ‘Giving Day’ is on Saturday, March 7. Each year, the branch offices choose a project that is near and dear to the hearts of their agents.

This year, 24 offices within the Better Homes and Gardens Mason-McDuffie network, including their joint ventures with Highland Partners, Wine Country Group, Tri-Valley Realty, Bahay Co., Leading Edge Realty and Ventura Barnett will donate time and resources to complete designated projects for 22 charities in their local communities.

“Our offices have been tasked with choosing a project in which everyone can participate, and each office has partnered with a local community organization for that day,” said Kathy Ollerton, director of charities. “On this corporate day of giving, it is our goal to have 100 percent participation of agents and employees through the giving of time or treasure.”

According to Ollerton, “Last year over 400 agents, staff and volunteers participated in 20 different charities totaling over 2,050 hours of service! This year we hope to surpass those numbers.”
