Denver, CO – Caring real estate professionals with Kentwood Real Estate recently raised $5,000 to buy hundreds of toys for The Denver Santa Clause Shop, a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to providing every child a toy at Christmas. This is the 16th consecutive year that Kentwood Broker Associates and staff have supported The Denver Santa Clause Shop.
Gail Junso, a transaction manager at Kentwood Real Estate, has spearheaded the program for the past 14 years, collecting donations and helping shop for toys. Donations made this year by Kentwood broker associates and staff totaled $5,000, a record high that resulted in hundreds of toys for underprivileged children in the metro Denver area.
On Tuesday, December 4th, Junso and Nancy Brown from Kentwood Real Estate’s DTC office spent four hours and the $5,000 shopping at Toys R Us. It took six SUVs to get all of the toys back to the DTC office where they were subsequently picked up by volunteers for The Denver Santa Clause Shop.
The Denver Santa Clause Shop has been helping struggling families provide toys for their children for 82 years. The shop’s annual toy drive is the largest of its kind in the metro Denver area and is believed to be the longest, continuously-run charity of its kind in the United States. The charity has provided Christmas presents for more than 1.5 million local children (from infants through 11 years of age), and the organization serves tens of thousands of youngsters each year.
Kentwood Real Estate looks forward to continuing this heart-warming tradition and takes great pride in knowing that contributions to The Denver Santa Claus Shop help deserving children have a merrier holiday season. Giving back to the community through a variety of charities and events has been a hallmark of Kentwood Real Estate since the company’s inception.
