This Christmas, Ray White continued its popular tradition of giving with the return of a little Ray of Giving.
Every year, Australians are asked to donate a gift for a deserving child and drop it into one of their participating Ray White offices.
This year, Ray White Reservoir participated for the first time, partnering with the Rotary Club of Preston to help distribute the gifts to disadvantaged families and children.
This gift drive is a really simple way to help put a smile on the face of children and families who may need some extra cheer at this time of year, said one of Ray White Reservoir’s Directors, John Catanzariti.
Ray White Reservoir had an overwhelming response from the local community and their local partners, collecting a total of 72 gifts over the two and a half week campaign.
“We couldn’t be happier with the support from the local community, it’s great to know we can help deserving families who may otherwise go without this Christmas,” said Ray White Reservoir Director, Arthur Mitsinikos.
Local partners, First Up Maintenance were kind enough to donate 10 gifts to the campaign and St Stephens Primary School also helped with the donation of gifts with a $70 donation.
“We believe it is important to teacher children to think of others and at Christmas time we hope to share with those in need,” said St Stephens Principal, Christine Paterson.
“We would like to thank everyone that dropped by a gift, no matter how big and small. We are delighted that we can be involved this Christmas campaign and help give back to the community and help make a child smile this Christmas,: John said.
Ray White has run this initiative across Australia and New Zealand each December since 2012. Last year nearly 300 offices across Australia and New Zealand helped raise 15,000 gifts for disadvantaged families for Christmas.
