Everyone wants to have a soft place to land or at least to lay your head, right? This extends to everyone, including those who are in between permanent homes or are homeless. This past month, Century 21 Redwood Realty agents rallied together to collect new pillows to donate to the Northern Virginia SERVE shelter.
Spearheaded by our C21 Redwood Manassas office’s Redwood Gives Back arm and supported by agents across all of our 13 offices, the collection of pillows were happily greeted by SERVE and the people SERVE helps. Northern Virginia Family Service’s SERVE Family Shelter is Northern Virginia’s largest family shelter and, on average (per their website), more than 40% of the shelter’s guests are children. While you wouldn’t think of a soft, clean pillow being a luxury, for some it is.
Providing a small amount of comfort when people are experiencing instability in their lives is a way of showing our commitment to everyone in our local community, no matter their circumstances.
