Spare some, share some – 1000 Roll Goal

Covid19 has revealed a lot of need in our community, and Howard Hanna Real Estate asked ourselves where and how best to help. Initially, we planned to collect coats and warm clothing for Grace Centers of Hope – a non-profit, Christian organization offering long-term life skills programs for men, women, and children afflicted by homelessness, addiction, and abuse. It surprised and humbled us to learn although Grace Centers of Hope would be grateful to receive warm clothing, their number one need was toilet paper – a defining 2020/Covid19 need. We worried that toilet paper was embarrassing to ask for and, noted that people might not donate a resource consistently scarce on supermarket and big-box store shelves for the last nine months.  The "Spare some, share some – 1000 roll goal" grew from the fact it was an awkward and difficult “Ask” for a simple but scarce necessity.  Toilet paper is a basic, everyday need for everyone – it felt like EXACTLY the right thing to do BECAUSE it wasn’t going to be easy.

Real Estate is about helping people and families find homes. In fact, our company tagline is, “Home Happens Here”.  It makes sense for Howard Hanna Clarkston to recognize and support Grace Centers of Hope for providing security and a sense of home to those who need it most. We are grateful that Grace Centers of Hope taught us that the best way to help – is to ask what is needed.  So please, if you can spare some, share some. Howard Hanna Clarkston is accepting drive-by drop off donations Monday-Friday, 9-5 at our office on 6681 Dixie Hwy. Clarkston. Our agents have made themselves available for pickup – call 248-206-8383 to arrange pickup. Help us meet our 1000 Roll Goal for Grace Centers of Hope.”
