---- — 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.
