Edina Realty program gives back locally

The Edina Realty Foundation, which supports homeless related causes, has awarded the Becker County Food Pantry $600.

A large portion of grant money came directly from the realtors of Edina Realty's Detroit Lakes sales office as well as from Edina Realty itself.

In addition, Edina Realty agents and employees hold events throughout the year that help raise additional contributions.

A non-profit organization, the Edina Realty Foundation was created in 1996 to support organizations that help homeless children and families in the markets in which Edina Realty does business.

"Our primary business is helping people buy and sell their homes. But there are many people in our community that are not as fortunate," said Dave Branson, Edina Realty Detroit Lakes sales office foundation representative. "We believe it's our responsibility to help people for whom housing is a major issue in their lives, and we are proud to donate both our time and our money to these worthy organizations."

The Edina Realty Foundation, founded in 1996, provides financial support to organizations that provide housing and related services, such as counseling and medical care, to homeless children, families and individuals.

To date the Foundation has raised more than $5.7 million.
