Sutton realtors donate $37,000 to school program

Sutton Group-West Coast Realty has donated $5,000 to Cloverdale elementary school.

Sutton Group-West Coast Realty has donated $5,000 to Cloverdale elementary school in Victoria as part of its annual Adopt-a-School program.

Every Sutton Group realtor makes a monthly contribution to the fund, which benefits one local school each year.

The selection process prioritizes schools in less prosperous neighbourhoods, where families can afford fewer extracurricular activities and children rely on school facilities.

“To date, we have donated $37,000 to seven schools,” said realtor Deborah Farley.

“The money is always used to enhance the lives of students. We hope to reach our $50,000 milestone in 2016.”
