Turner Real Estate: Building Community Through Volunteer Activities

At Turner Real Estate, our commitment to serving the community extends far beyond our role as a real estate agency. We believe in giving back, and this week, we had the privilege of getting involved in a volunteer activity that truly warmed our hearts.

In collaboration with the Hutt Street Centre, we dedicated our time and resources to support those experiencing homelessness. The experience was not just a day of volunteering; it was a day of building connections, understanding and contributing to the betterment of our community.

This week, our team rolled up their sleeves and headed to the Hutt Street Centre, serving over 100 meals just in our lunch shift alone. As a place of hope and perseverance, they operate to help the homeless rebuild their lives without judgement. Our goal was simple but profound: to make a difference in the lives of people facing homelessness.

Each year, the Hutt Street Centre serves over 40,000 meals to nearly 2,000 people. In addition to this, they provide access to showers, laundry facilities, health professionals, social work and support services, legal aid, housing and employment assistance. Helping over 200 homeless visitors every day, their dedication to their cause and the community they serve is nothing short of inspiring.

The day at the Hutt Street Centre was an eye-opening experience for our team. We assisted in various ways, from preparing and serving meals to engaging in conversations with those who sought shelter and support. Through these interactions, we gained a deeper understanding of the challenges faced by those without homes. It was a humbling experience that highlighted the importance of empathy, compassion and community support.

Our involvement with the Hutt Street Centre is just one example of our ongoing commitment to social responsibility. We firmly believe that as members of the community, we have a responsibility to give back and support those in need. This extends beyond our role in real estate, as we strive to be active contributors to the well-being of the neighbourhoods we serve.

Homelessness can and does happen to anyone, and many of us are lucky enough to have a place to call home. At Turner Real Estate, we are committed to making a difference in our community, and we invite you to join us in our efforts. Whether it’s through volunteering, supporting local initiatives, or advocating for important causes, every contribution counts.

As we reflect on our experience at the Hutt Street Centre this week, we are reminded of the power of community, compassion and the positive impact we can create when we come together. We look forward to more opportunities to serve our community and to make a lasting difference in the lives of those who need it most. Together, we can build a stronger and more caring community for everyone.
