Tis the Season for Great Causes & Holiday Shindigs
Holidays bring out the generosity in people and companies (or even the Grinch and Scrooge). Here's CBRE assistant real estate manager Dana Barton and real estate services coordinator Taylor King. They organized a Salvation Army angel tree effort resulting in a bundle of presents for 50 kids from tenants of 100 Congress (which is managed and leased by CBRE staff and home to CBRE's Austin office). Of the 50 angels, 15 were sponsored by CBRE staff.
The San Antonio office of Stream Realty Partners collected 176 toys in two weeks for the Dan Cook Youth Center. Four years ago Stream Realty employees saw that the center had a need and they've have been helping out every year since. The 30-year-old community org provides drop-out prevention and recovery programs for San Antonio's low-income children and young adults. Stream employees delivered the toys to the youth center and helped host a Christmas party with cupcakes and juice for the kids (and some young at heart, too).
Winstead's Austin office rang in the season with a client reception. Here's Austin Title's Brian Baize, Winstead's Greta Goldsby, Austin Title's Josh Williams, and Four T Realty's Taylor Terkel. Winstead also collected gifts and money for the Partnerships for Children program that benefits children served by Child Protective Services. Last year, they collected more than $3,000 in gifts and money to benefit local children in the CPS program.
