Great Causes: Salvation Army & The Red Cross
SRS Real Estate Partners partnered with Cypress Equities (an SRS affiliate) by adopting 70 angels, ranging from newborn to senior citizen through the Salvation Army Corporate Angel Tree program. SRS employees took gifts to the Salvation Army Christmas distribution center on Harry Hines Boulevard in Dallas. They also sorted gifts and stocked shelves. This is the company's ninth year participating. The firm also volunteered with Brother Bill's Helping Hand to prepare bags of food at the free grocery store and sort toys for its annual Christmas Eve celebration.
The American Red Cross Young Professionals Auxiliary hosted its annual Wrapped in Red fundraiser last Friday at the Rosewood Crescent Hotel. Here's Colliers International EVP Mary Stoner Yost (honorary event chairwoman) with MAPP Construction's Caroline Hurley (the Wrapped in Red chairwoman). They tell us that more than 300 Dallas young professionals attended and raised more than $5,000 to carry forward its life-saving mission of assisting those affected by a disaster.
