Realty Exchange LLC once again helped families during the holiday season and brought an immense amount of joy to over 30 children that are currently in foster homes throughout Volusia and Flagler counties. Volusia-based organization, Community Partnership for Children, partners with municipal courts, community advocates as well as public and private agencies to ensure the safety of all of the children in the program.
Realtors and staff were delighted to be presented with a wish list from a foster family they were matched with. The opportunity to partner up with area foster families to bring the holidays home to the children was moving to all.
Mindy Melendez, a Realtor with Realty Exchange, who has been a devout foster mom, spearheaded the drive. A foster parent for the past several years in both Ohio and in Florida, she said, “Fostering has a special place in our hearts, as we are not only showing and giving these children love, but they are adding to our home and hearts as well. They help teach us how to be better people through this whole process.”
“We were so proud that our colleagues came together to bring such joy to so many underprivileged boys and girls. Our team members managed to bring delight to so many children,” Julie Sabine, broker/owner said.
“Our company truly appreciates the spirit of the holidays and really wanted to extend our love for bringing magic to the celebration in the Palm Coast and surrounding areas,” David Petkovsek, broker/owner of Realty Exchange LLC, said.
The children placed in these homes are not related in any capacity to the foster parents, and the household does not receive any stipends to assist in their care.
