Edina Realty presents checks to charity
Edina Realty of Brainerd presented checks to three area charities on Dec. 9.
Money was raised by raffling a playhouse off this past summer in Brainerd. Nor-son Inc. built the playhouse and Simonson Lumber donated some of the materials.
In addition to the raffle, matched funds were also donated by Edina Realty Foundation.
Another large source of funds is the money agents and Edina Realty employees donate from each commission check and payroll check. Checks were accepted by Kevin Pelkey, Habitat for Humanity executive director; Patrice O'Leary, Lutheran Social Services; and Bryan Reed, Salvation Army captain. Each charity received a check for $2,750 for a total of $8,250 in donations. The money will be used in the Brainerd area for housing need and related services.
