The spirit of giving and community involvement was unusually high this season as Village Real Estate Services claimed Second Harvest Food Bank as their number one recipient and focus for the holiday.
Boys against girls, was the challenge to see who could bring in the most food for distribution before December 13th. Competition raged as case after case of canned and dry goods appeared. Soon the lobby at the Hillsboro office was full and overloaded.
On December 13th a scale was delivered and both sides weighed in their haul. The winners were announced at the annual Village Holiday party at the Bound’ry Restaurant that night. The boys had a really good showing with over 800 pounds of food, but the girls topped them with a whopping 1000 pounds.
Village is excited to present over 1800 pounds of food to Second Harvest next week when a representative will arrive with a truck. Second Harvest is just one of the nonprofit organizations that Village Real Estate Services and their agents support all year through the Village Fund. Let’s see what they can do next year.
