What began in 2021, the Harry Norman Cares initiative has since grown into an annual tradition that benefits a selected charity in Atlanta. This year, we partnered with Ronald McDonald House Charities of Atlanta (ARMHC), and invited our agents and community members to donate select items for various Care Kits to be given to families in need.
Through the Cares Initiative, Harry Norman, REALTORS® was able to put together 1,185 Care Kits, which will all go to thousands of families in need, and help them through their stay at Ronald McDonald House.
“The Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities have been a pillar of our community for over 40 years, offering care, support, and peace of mind for families when it matters the most,” said Jenni Bonura, President & CEO of Harry Norman, REALTORS®. “Our agents and staff truly put compassion into action, and I am proud of our company’s commitment to giving back to the communities we serve.”
ARMHC was delighted to partner with Harry Norman, making history as the first time they have collaborated with a real estate company. The items donated were used to create different themed Care Kits, such as “Fresh & Clean,” “Laundry and Clothing Care,” “Cures for Boredom,” “Grab and Go Treats,” and “Seasonal Comfort and Joy.” The specific items being collected for donation included travel-sized shampoos and soaps, toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, arts and craft items, playing cards, stuffed animals, non-perishable food items like granola bars, and more.
To wrap up the initiative, both our agents and employees were invited to volunteer on-site at two of the ARMHC locations on Oct. 25 and Oct. 26, where 40 volunteers prepared and served meals for the families and hosted an activity hour for the children.
