Christmas came early for many charities as Ray White’s Christmas initiative ‘A Little Ray of Giving’ raised thousands of gifts, money and more than 300 bags of non-perishables across Australia and New Zealand.
More than 350 offices across the Ray White Group signed up to the cause, with more than 11,000 presents gathered, $2,200 in cash, $1,000 in gift cards and 307 food bags donated.
Ray White Group Director Dan White said he was delighted that for a seventh year in a row so many offices participated and he was proud to have supported a number of charities.
“Ray White is a family-owned and family-run business and there really is no better time than Christmas to come together to help people less fortunate,” Mr White said
“It’s at this time of year when we love to give back to our communities and help in any way we can.”
Mr White made a special mention of the Lower North Shore Group in Sydney, the leading ‘Little Ray’ office for the year collecting 1,500 gifts, and Ray White North Adelaide for raising more than 700 gifts and $200 in cash.
Ronald McDonald House, The Salvation Army and AnglicareSA were just some the charities set to benefit from the initiative.
“It’s a source of personal pride that our network has come together in such a positive way to raise a substantial number of gifts, money and food bags for people in our communities,” Mr White said.
