Recently, I made a decision that I wanted to align myself and my company with a charity that meant something to me. After a lot of soul searching and research I chose the Gary Sinise Foundation. I feel very strongly that more needs to be done for our returning Veterans. The Gary Sinise Foundation does have different programs that you can donate to but I have chosen their R*I*S*E program. The R*I*S*E program is building smart homes for our seriously wounded Veterans. As someone who has dedicated their life’s work to finding homes for people this was something that has touched my heart.
If you close on your home purchase or sale with Oaklawn Real Estate, Oaklawn will make a $100 donation in your name to the charity of your choice. I do hope you will look at the Gary Sinise Foundation when making your decision of which charity you want to give to.
If you do not have a charity of choice then a donation will be made on your behalf to —
Gary Sinise Foundation
