The area’s largest, locally-owned real estate firm is partnering with United Way chapters across New York State to take part in over 20 community service projects
BUFFALO, NY – July 10, 2017 – On Thursday, July 13, over 300 HUNT Real Estate Corporation agents and employees across New York State will be donating their collective time and effort by taking part in HUNT’s 1st Annual CommUNITY Day. The company has teamed with 11 United Way chapters from Western New York to the Capital Region to take part in 23 community service projects, ranging from painting and landscaping to making meals and working with children and seniors. Most HUNT Real Estate branch locations will be closed on July 13 during the hours of the event to allow their agents and staff to participate in these projects.
“The HUNT mission statement says that we will ‘contribute to the society in which we operate,’ and this company-wide community service event is a living representation of that mission,” said Peter Hunt, Chairman & CEO of Hunt Real Estate Corp. “We had such an overwhelming response to our call for volunteers that we had to ask the United Way for additional projects. It is wonderful to see our entire company eager to give back to our local communities.”
For over 20 years, the Buffalo-based real estate firm has been one of the United Way of Buffalo & Erie County’s largest charitable supporters. The company is now expanding that relationship with the United Way by making their HUNT CommUNITY Day an annual day of action for their agents and staff throughout the state.
“HUNT Real Estate is a valued partner of the United Way of Buffalo & Erie County and their CommUNITY Day is just another example of how the team at HUNT takes the extra step to make our community the best place to live," said Michael Weiner, President & CEO of the United Way of Buffalo & Erie County. "We look forward to working together on July 13th, as well as on future community service projects. On behalf of the United Ways across the state, we thank everyone at HUNT for all their hard work and support.”
“We value our partnership with the United Way because of their deep-rooted commitment to improving our community and creating more opportunities for the people who live here,” remarked Hunt. “Throughout Upstate New York we publicly state, ‘#WeLiveHere’ and we see no better way to show our support for our neighbors than to give back to the communities in which we live and work.”
