On Monday, November 9, at its Strathroy president’s breakfast, LSTAR president Joe Hough presented a $5,000 cheque to the Women’s Rural Resource Centre (WRRC) on behalf of the REALTORS Care Foundation. Ellen Frood, Senior Development Officer of the WRRC, was on hand to accept the cheque and offer her thanks for the Foundation’s support of the centre. The money will help fund their residential shelter program.
The Women’s Rural Resource Centre offers residential and non-residential support, and also provides counseling services in outreach sites for abused women and their children.
“LSTAR was very proud to support the WRRC in its application for a REALTORS Care Foundation grant and I am so pleased to see the money helping such a worthwhile cause in our community,” said LSTAR president Joe Hough. “Giving back helps the WRRC provide an essential service and it helps us to achieve our Quality of Life principles.”
