Realtors Giving Back!
It is great to see our WMVR Communities helping each other during difficult times. Here are a few we have heard about.
If you have anything to add from your area, of see Brokers/Realtors and Affiliates doing good in the community, send me a note to the Front Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org
You don’t have to save the whole world. You just need to touch another’s soul with an uplifting word, a smile, a listening ear, and true kindness every chance you can. You will receive so much more in doing this then you can imagine. Amazing how that works. 🙂 Mary Griffin

“Just sharing with you my brokerage’s good deed … we bought coffee and cinnamon rolls for our Twin Falls Police dept.
I’m attaching the FB post. We thought it would be a good idea to recognize our first responders … we will do it again next week. ”

Luke and Amber Balbas from ServPro deserve a HUGE shout out for their tireless work to serve the Magic and Wood River valleys. They have delivered food and supplies to the Wood River valley and to those who are quarantined, they have organized food drives to help the truckers passing through here with supplies they need, Amber started a Facebook page called Magic Valley Helps t that has taken off with over 2,600 followers. She gives recognition to those serving others in our community and current info on things going on.
Doing good has been all they are about and even in their business. They are cleaning for first responders, for those who are sick, or test positive for Covid-19. They have increased their staff to take on the load.
Today though they are trying on their own to move into their new house and have been in transition from that for over 6 months! How I am sure people wish they could help them like they have helped others!
Such a great and giving family and affiliate to our organization!
BTW looks like Robert Jones Realty have been involved in the United Way project below with them!

Nicole Gabiola let everyone know there was a need for food at the TF Youth Optimist House. Donations came in droves; people were dropping off groceries to her home, sending her money via venmo, and Domino’s agreed to feed them every Monday night.
Tami Gooding made Masks for IVC Volunteers. Great Job Tami helping your community!
Barker Realtors are working hard and Supporting their Local hometown business.
In Hagerman, people are placing hearts on the doors of business and first responders to thank them and show their appreciation.
Judy from 1000 Springs Realty helps where she can by shopping for seniors and shut-ins.
And I hear Hagerman even had a visit from the Easter Bunny handing to prizes to winners of coloring contest around town.
Westerra Real Estate Group has been helping families in need by providing boxes of food to them. They have done this twice this month so far!
“Here are a few pictures from the 2 different times we gave food boxes away. In total we gave away approximately 200 food boxes to feed families in need as well, East End Providers, IDOC Parole & Probation, Lighthouse Church, and Clover Creek Apartments.”
At Berkshire Hathaway, Cory Robinson partnered with Twin Falls Sandwich Company to help provide lunches to kits in need. WELL DONE!
Mandi Riddle is doing a contest on the website where you can sign up to win a $25 gift card to local restaurants thereby supporting local and helping our small business during tough times.
The IdaHome Realty Team is showing support for their Home Town Businesses. Laura Fitzgerald said the following:
For Milner’s Gate, a local Twin Falls Brewer and Grill, they held a promotion where if you purchase a 100 dollar gift certificate they would donate 25 dollars to their staff who are obviously out of work right now. We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy and doing there best to give back during this time.
Nita form American Real Estate was creative and made masks and shared them. Also, the neighbors in that area are checking up on each other.
