PALO ALTO—16 January 2013. Sereno Group’s Palo Alto office announced Rebuilding Together Peninsula as their 1st quarter recipient for their 1% for Good philanthropy campaign. During the months of January, February, and March, the Sereno Group Palo Alto team will be pledging 1% of their gross commissions to Rebuilding Together Peninsula in support of their programs.
Founded in 1989, Rebuilding Together Peninsula estimates there are approximately 94,000 low income homeowners in San Mateo and Northern Santa Clara counties. Rebuilding Together Peninsula provides critical home repairs, modifications, and improvements for the area’s low income homeowners in need, such as seniors or people with disabilities, as well as families, so they can live independently in warmth and safety.
“We are excited to partner with Rebuilding Together Peninsula,” said Brian Chancellor, Sales Manager of Sereno Group Palo Alto, “because of the heartfelt and important work they do: lending a helping hand to improve the lives and homes of low-income homeowners who are in dire need and who appreciate the time, effort, and care of the volunteers.”
In addition to their monetary contribution, the Sereno Group Palo Alto team will be participating in Rebuilding Together’s National Rebuilding Day on Saturday, April 27, 2013.
In 2012, Sereno Group announced the launch of their 1% for Good charitable philanthropy program. With 1% for Good, Sereno Group has pledged to give 1% of their gross commissions to a charitable or community minded organization committed to making a positive difference in the community.
The program is organized and directed by committees within each respective Sereno Group office. This structure allows each office the opportunity to choose local organizations, with their philanthropic contribution directly impacting the local communities. Organizations will be selected on a quarterly basis by each office, with the 90 day aggregate sum of donation dollars being delivered to the chosen beneficiary organizations at the end of each period.
