Sutton Community Inspires
CANADA – Members of the Sutton community are helping to contain the spread of the virus to protect us all, especially healthcare workers and those with compromised immune systems. Sutton REALTORS® have adapted their business focusing on non-contact communication to safely assist their clients. Many have gone even further by fundraising for hospitals and food banks, sewing masks, distributing hand sanitizer and showing support for caregivers. How many lives have been saved by these actions? How many others have been inspired to act? We will never know the exact numbers, but occasionally the butterfly effect lands in our inbox like it did this week with a note from Tony Nguyen of Sutton Group - 1st West Realty in Coquitlam, B.C. Tony was inspired by the story about Rayissa Palmer collecting groceries for the Georgetown Bread Basket, a food bank unable to feed the increasing number of people in need. Despite living in another province, he responded to the call for help from a region that has been hit hard by COVID-19. So far, Ontario has had nearly 1,800 deaths and a total of 22,000 cases. Tony donated $1,000 to the Georgetown Bread Basket. Please keep sharing your news with Sutton Spirit because you never know how many lives it will affect. Large or small, every action matters. Please send a few details to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and we will follow up to gather comments and a photograph or two. Your story will be sent to the local media and the Sutton community. We will also feature it in our annual booklet/Referral Directory, which is delivered to more than 200 offices across Canada, and on www.suttonspirit.com. While it may not be business as usual, a public announcement on Sutton.com from Rick Taron, Vice President of Operations, highlights ways to work safely such as: • Self-isolate if not feeling well • Follow all governmental and health agency guidelines for handwashing, sanitation, and other best practices. • Take advantage of alternative communication channels such as phone calls, text messages and video conferencing. (Sutton is providing agents with extra training resources on using technology for working and assisting clients remotely, such as virtual tours and video communication.)
