The enormous hearts and outreach expressed from our agents and staff in a time of need is nothing short of inspiring. When Hurricane Dorian devastated parts of The Bahamas recently, our Englewood office and agent Misty Raines decided to act.
Through Misty’s personal connections on the island, she spread the word to Michael Saunders & Company offices that she would gladly arrange for supplies to be delivered to those in need. Over the next several weeks, our Englewood team will be collecting items from our offices across Sarasota, Manatee and Charlotte counties, then Misty will drive the supplies to Fort Lauderdale to be shipped by sea directly to the island residents in need.
The list of supplies can be viewed below.
Our thoughts continue to be with the people of the Bahamas during their time of recovery. We have touched base with our Christie’s and Luxury Portfolio affiliates – HG Christie and Bahamas Realty – to express our desire to help and contribute towards relief efforts. As such, they directed us to the following organizations where they feel resources will make a huge difference and reach those in greatest need. We have made donations to both organizations in the company’s name.
