Former Banker, Fresh REALTOR®, Caring Community Member
Vancouver, B.C. – Volunteering has been a rewarding way for Jennifer Barbosa to meet other REALTORS® and neighbours as she makes a difference in her community. Jennifer joined Sutton Group - West Coast Realty in 2018 and was eager to participate in her first REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive, which provides clothing and bedding to people in need and funds social housing projects.
Jennifer promoted the project to her friends and clients and collected donations. She even enlisted her mother to join her in delivering items to a drop-off centre.
“I am a proud supporter of the REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive. I happily picked up new and gently used blankets and clothing for donation,” says Jennifer.
“I think anyone living in Metro Vancouver feels deeply concerned for those living on our streets, especially as the cooler weather approaches. I believe this effort not only improves lives but also saves lives right here in our community. It is truly my pleasure to help make a difference for those in great need of warmth and compassion.”
During her previous profession—a banker for 14 years—Jennifer ran a successful campaign for the United Way of the Lower Mainland.
“I worked out of the United Way's office during one of the campaigns as the official TD Loan Representative to help them grow their donation dollars by visiting businesses and supporting their individual campaigns by running seminars, answering questions, providing marketing and informational materials, and collecting and tallying their donations and pledges for them.”
Jennifer was born and raised in Richmond and says that she feels blessed to live in the beautiful and historic Steveston Fishing Village where she and her husband raise two boys.
Last week, Jennifer participated in the Steveston Icebreaker 8K Run/Walk that began in Steveston and meandered along the scenic Fraser River. Entrance fees for the race support the Kajaks Track & Field Club, a non-profit community-based athletics club.
