Real estate agents from Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties, in conjunction with the San Diego chapter of The Charitable Foundation, have donated $7,500 to the Warrior Foundation Freedom Station, a nonprofit that assists injured and disabled military heroes who request temporary lodging while transitioning to civilian life.
The funds were raised at the chapter’s “Day at the Races” event at the Del Mar Fairgrounds in late 2014 and presented to the beneficiary recently. The San Diego-based organization provides 12 neighboring 800-square-foot cottages in Golden Hill for wounded veterans. Each cottage has one bedroom and one bathroom; amenities include a communal dining room, kitchen, living room, yard, and white picket fence.
The “Day at the Races” benefit included a silent auction among agents and their guests to support deserving servicemen and servicewomen. The event was supported by Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties, Pickford Escrow Company, and The Charitable Foundation.
“Freedom Station is a leading force in assisting, honoring, and supporting the military men and women who have so bravely served and sacrificed for our country,” said Mark Stuart, board chair of the San Diego chapter. “We are honored to present this donation, which will help provide quality-of-life items and support services designed to assist them and their families.”
