FirstService Residential: Help End Child Poverty by Supporting Red Nose Day

On Thursday, May 24, FirstService Residential will join millions around the world for Red Nose Day.

Launched on Christmas Day in 1985, Comic Relief, the charity behind Red Nose Day, used the power of comedy to start a movement. Since then, millions of red-nose wearing supporters have raised more than $1 billion dollars to end child poverty, one nose at a time.

We are proud to be among that group this year. Which is where you (and your nose) come in!

FirstService Residential will be selling red noses in our New Jersey office from now until May 24 to raise funds for this important cause. Associates are invited to purchase a nose for $1. If you can give more, even better! All proceeds will be donated to the Red Nose Day Fund, which provides meals, safe places to live, essential medical services and life-saving vaccines and treatments for children in need.

California Closets: Join us for the Friends of Oakland Animal Services Half Marathon

The Friends of Oakland Animal Services, a nonprofit fundraising arm of the Oakland Animal Services Shelter, has formed a running team and will be running the Oakland Half Marathon, raising much needed funds and awareness for the shelter.  OAS is Oakland’s only open-admission shelter, and they do so much to help homeless, sick, and injured animals the San Francisco Bay Area! Morgan McGuire is a huge animal lover, and, since she can’t personally rescue all of the homeless animals, she tries to help in other ways.  She has volunteered for OAS since 2015, and has been a runner for a long time, so, when they announced this fundraising event, she had to say yes. The team has collectively already raised more than $8,000, and they are hoping to raise at least $12,000.  The money raised will help support the municipal shelter’s efforts to better care for thousands of animals each year in the face of Oakland’s ongoing budgetary challenges.  Donations of any amount are incredibly welcome and appreciated. https://www.crowdrise.com/o/en/campaign/friends-of-oas-running-team-oakland-running-festival-2019/morganmcguire
