Surrey, B.C. – At Christmastime, when families in need receive baskets filled with food and gifts from various charities, young children eagerly unwrap their toys while their teenage siblings are often left to watch empty-handed and disappointed. The team at Sutton - Premier Realty challenges the entire real estate community to “bring on the balls”—specifically balls for soccer, basketball, volleyball, baseball, tennis and other sports.
Sutton - Premier Realty has a two-tier challenge. First, they ask Sutton members across Canada to donate balls to Christmas charities then share the news. Closer to home, they ask for assistance from all realty companies in the Lower Mainland (not just Sutton offices) to reach the goal of providing 990 balls for the 990 teenagers currently registered with the Surrey Christmas Bureau.
“We would love to have every donor meet us at the Surrey Christmas Bureau to drop off at same time and make it an event,” says Sadaf Baig, Managing Broker with Sutton - Premier Realty.
“Last year, it was brought to our attention that out of 4,000 kids who rely on the Surrey Christmas Bureau, 900 teenagers were left without gifts. No child should be overlooked on Christmas, so this year, keeping in mind how important active play is for children of all ages, we have vowed to bring on the balls!”
Sadaf’s deadline to finalize donations is the end of November. “Our aim is to ensure every teenager on the Surrey Christmas Bureau list receives a gift of fitness and fun! Are you ready to take on this challenge with us? Do you have the balls?”
Over the past several years, Sutton - Premier Realty has raised more than $30,000 to provide food, toys and other gifts to lower income people. Last year, they delivered holiday joy to 15 families including 25 children.
