Kentwood City Broker Associates Support Be the Gift Nonprofit by Providing Gifts for Single Mothers and Their Children

1483479280DENVER, CO – Generous Broker Associates with Kentwood City Properties recently helped support the “Be the Gift” charitable organization by providing gifts for single mother homeowners and their families who are in need.  Spearheaded by Kentwood City Broker Associate Allison Smookler, the gift drive was celebrated at a special luncheon held at Cinzetti’s restaurant on Sunday, December 11, 2016.

Be the Gift nonprofit provides practical assistance to single mom homeowners in need of home repair.  The organization’s goal is to ensure a safe and healthy home environment for single mother families and to improve their quality of life.

“Once again, Broker Associates with Kentwood City Properties outdid themselves by providing Christmas Gifts for our single mom families,” said Marilyn Johnson, Founder & Administrator of Be the Gift.  “We are all so grateful.  We celebrated with our moms during a special luncheon and I cannot describe the joy that was felt in our private room that day.  There was so much excitement, and we could barely hear each other talk.


“Giving out the family gift bags is one of my favorite things we do all year,” Johnson continued.  “These ladies work so hard to maintain their home and provide for their children.  One mother recently wrote me a letter that stated ‘I cannot tell you how I felt when I realized that someone had selected me, shopped for me, and carefully wrapped the gift I received.  I know the memory of this gift will last a lifetime and in truth may be something my daughter and I will remember forever.’  Please extend my gratitude to all who participated and have a blessed Christmas.”

“We are proud to be involved with the Be the Gift project which invites single moms to request holiday gifts for themselves and their children,” said Smookler  “Be the Gift finds businesses willing to support the gift giving and Kentwood City Properties is pleased to join the charity’s efforts once again in 2016.  Be the Gift believes that some of the greatest heroes of our time are single mothers who give their lives to raise their children and provide for them.  With their limited income and all their time poured onto their kids, single moms sometimes struggle to maintain and repair their home.  We are happy to support this outstanding nonprofit.”
