Lynn Fruth, CEO of the Danberry Co., Realtors, hosted a special event, recognizing the company for its commitment to serving the community through volunteer hours. The Danberry Co, Realtors, its management team, agents and staff, collectively contributed more than 5,600 hours of community service to 102 organizations, churches and schools in and around the Toledo area throughout this year as part of its Community Benefits Program.

The Danberry Community Benefits Program is designed to increase and enhance the efforts of Danberry ‘family members’ in giving back to the community by focusing attention on individual efforts and rewarding a select few of them on an annual basis. Every member of the team is encouraged to give at least four hours a year from June 1 through May 31 to the community in an activity that the individual selects.

The second annual Community Benefits event was held June 21 at The Heights- Renaissance Toledo Downtown. During the event, three members of the Danberry Family, selected by a panel of non-Danberry judges, were recognized for their outstanding contributions. The first place $1,000 check for a charity of her choice, went to Jill Kegler for her time working with Habitat for Humanity, United Way of Toledo, Toledo Chamber of Commerce, Lott Industries and TASBA. A second place, $500 check for his charity of choice went to Sean Rizor for his contribution to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief and Hurricane Irma clean-up. The third place, $250 check was awarded to Lisa Sedlak for her charity of choice as a result of her volunteer efforts towards Good Grief of Northwest Ohio, All Saints Catholic School and Mom’s House of Toledo. During the check presentation, Danberry agent Victoria Valle announced that she will match the Danberry contributions for each organization chosen to receive funds.

“Most volunteers give of their time not for recognition, but to help others. We recognize that but we believe that by sharing our efforts, we can serve as a positive example to others which will result in motivating them to also volunteer,” Fruth stated.

“Our mission statement in part states that we as a company, believe that Danberry should be supportive of and committed to each other and the community. The Danberry Community Benefit Program gives us the structure to Live that part of our mission,” added Fruth.

Established in 1962, The Danberry Co., Realtors is the region’s leading real estate brokerage based upon sales. Its 267 agents work out of six offices in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan. In addition to traditional residential brokerage services, Danberry also provides commercial brokerage, property management, auction and relocation services.
