HUNT Real Estate Western New York Branches Participate in The Buffalo News Neediest Campaign

HUNT Real Estate will once again be joining The Buffalo News and its many partners in making sure that no child in our community is forgotten during the holidays. 

All of our 16 HUNT Western New York residential sales offices will serve as drop-off locations to collect much-needed items and holiday gifts as part of The Buffalo News Neediest Campaign. 

This campaign has been a mainstay in the community for many years, especially in the past few years during times of great uncertainty for many in the area, and HUNT has always been a significant partner in this important cause. 

If you’re in the area, new, unwrapped toys can be donated to any of our WNY locations through December 13th. All types of new gifts are needed, especially for kids ages 8–12, including the following: 

  • Arts and crafts kits
  • Athletic sports goods equipment
  • Board games
  • Cosmetics, nail polish, manicure sets
  • Gift certificates
  • Handheld electronic games
  • Hair dryers, straighteners, curling irons
  • Legos (advanced)
  • Jewelry and hair accessories
  • Dolls
  • Remote control cars
  • Mario and Xbox games

The toys and gifts will be sorted and distributed to children in need in time for the holidays. 

If you aren’t local but are looking to contribute to support families in need through the holidays and beyond, consider making a monetary donation to the News Neediest fund. Every dollar donated will directly benefit a child or family through FeedMore WNY.

HUNT Gives Back To Their Communities

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…”

HUNT Charitable Foundation logo

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…”.

ERA Key Realty Services Cares logo

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:
