Remax on the River makes Valentine's Day donations

The Realtors at Remax On the River have established a charitable foundation and each agent contributes a percentage of their commissions from every sale they make to fund the foundation. Since 2010 the foundation has contributed nearly $70,000 to local charities and organizations.

This Valentine’s Day, the Remax agents made a donation to three local charities. Checks in the amount of $2,000 were presented to the Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center, Pettengill House and the Boy’s and Girl’s Club of the Lower Merrimack Valley.

In addition, the Remax Charitable Foundation recently donated $5,000 each to two local families who were in immediate need of assistance.

The Remax Charitable Foundation has also established an annual High School Scholarship Fund that will offer $2,000 scholarships to four local high schools: Newburyport, Amesbury, Triton and Pentucket.

The scholarships will be awarded to graduating seniors who will be selected based on their local involvement or volunteer work focused on giving back to their communities.

Those with questions can contact Craig Holt at 508-633-6366.
