HUNT Real Estate sales professionals and employees have stepped up to support their local communities during the COVID-19 crisis.
Branches across the company created tabs at local restaurants for medical professionals and first responders. This was not only done as a “thank you” to those on the front lines, but also as a way to support local restaurants in the area that have been affected by the statewide shutdown. Pepper Jack’s, a local restaurant selected for the tab in Albany, NY, shared a special thank you on the HUNT Clifton Park branch Facebook page, “…our phones were busy and we appreciate you supporting a small business…”
Along with the support offered by our branches, the HUNT Charitable Fund, a private foundation funded by contributors from HUNT Real Estate and other family members, is supporting United Ways in Western NY, Rochester, Central NY and the Capital Regions with their COVID-19 Community Initiatives. The United Way has created these initiatives to, “…rapidly deploy flexible resources to nonprofits that are disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, the economic consequences of the outbreak, community, and organizational recovery…”.
In our Massachusetts region, the team at ERA Key Realty is also working with local restaurants to create tabs for first responders, as well as supporting Northbridge Food Pantry and Peace of Bread through their ERA Key Charitable Trust.
HUNT and ERA Key will continue to support their communities during this crisis. If you would like additional information about the United Way Community Initiatives, please visit the following sites:
