DRIVEN TO GIVE
In partnership with Steve Marshall Ford Lincoln in Nanaimo, Vancouver Island REALTORS® hit the streets for its first Driven to Give fundraising event. Recognizing that charitable organizations and educational institutions are frequently unable to reach their full potential due to lack of funding, Lincoln Motor Company developed the Driven to Give program. Each test drive earned $50, and when we tallied the final results, VIREB REALTORS® had raised the designated maximum of $10,000 for Nanaimo’s Haven Society. Despite a lower threshold of $7,500, VIREB repeated this success in the following years, raising $7,500 for the BC SPCA Nanaimo & District Branch in 2016 and the same amount in 2017 for Nanaimo and District Crime Stoppers and Nanaimo RCMP Victim Services.
