Greenrock Real Estate Advisors hosted the 2019 IMPACT Donation Reception on behalf of Greenrock Charitable Trust at Greenrock's head office at 64 Merton Street at 2pm on November 20, 2019. Residents, staff and members of the community joined to celebrate this year's IMPACT recipients with a cheque presentation ceremony and celebratory speeches. Greenrock proudly presented cheques of $25,000 to five well-deserving organizations which were all chosen by residents who live in Greenrock communities. These charities are helping communities across the GTA and Greenrock looks forward to working closely with them in 2020.
This fall Greenrock asked over 4,000 residents to nominate charities for the 2019 IMPACT Donation. With an overwhelming amount of nominations, 13 local charities were selected to be on this year's ballot. The final vote ended on November 11th and Greenrock made a donation of $25,000 to each of the five charities that received the most resident votes. Greenrock is proud to announce the following charities are the recipients of this year's 2019 IMPACT Donation; The Toronto Children's Breakfast Club, Eva's Initiatives for Homeless Youth, Good Foot Support Services, Out of the Cold Foundation and The 519 Church Street Community Centre.
