Today we continue our spotlight on this year’s honorees from last week’s annual dinner!
Imagine the surprise when Patricia Beebe, our President and CEO, learned in early 2014 that the Food Bank of Delaware inherited $100,000 and a home owned by a deceased Newark woman who once depended on emergency food services.
It was determined that the best way to handle the inheritance was to sell the home. The first realtor who came to mind was Michael Haritos of Keller Williams Realty in Newark.
Michael has been a long-time supporter of the Food Bank of Delaware. In just the past three years, Keller Williams Realty in Newark has donated more than 20,000 pounds of food.
The food is collected at continuing education workshops that are held several times a year. Michael was generous enough to offer his services and donate both his and the brokerage’s commission back to the Food Bank. In December he presented us a check for $6,000! This donation has allowed us to provide 12,000 meals to Delawareans in need.
Thank you, Michael, for your commitment to a community free of hunger!
