3rd Annual GREAT TURKEY GIVE
By Elden Freeman
Continuing the Holiday Tradition of Giving Back to the Community
Freeman Real Estate is reprising its community giving this holiday season with a charitable gift that is even bigger and better than the last two year’s.
The family-run boutique realtor is stepping up its contribution to the community this year, on Sunday, December 16th, with a GREAT TURKEY GIVE that will see some 9,000 lbs. of turkey given to members of the public on a first-come, first-serve basis.
This is the 3rd annual turkey giveaway for the Bathurst Street realtor, which launched the GIVE in 2016 as a way of giving back to the community and keeping the tradition of Ed Mirvish alive.
Freeman is located, just four blocks north of the former Honest Ed’s store, which gave away free turkeys during the holidays for many years.
Freeman is a real estate brokerage with a reputation for supporting community causes, charities and interests. “For over 46 years, starting with my father, the Freeman family has been practising real estate at this very location on Bathurst Street,” says Elden Freeman, Broker of Record. “The community we serve means a lot to us. Giving away turkeys is our way of saying thank you, engaging with those we serve, and hopefully inspiring others to spread generosity and goodwill during the holiday season.”
The turkeys are completely free of charge, and for each turkey given, Freeman plans to donate to St. Alban’s Boys & Girls Club, an organisation that offers programming for children and youth.
Freeman has partnered with Bathurst Street organisations Spirit of Math for the giveaway. Located in the Annex, Spirit of Math is a leader in after-school mathematics education.
On hand to help give away the turkeys will be several Toronto city councillors and a number of other political figures and local celebrities.
The GIVE begins at 9 a.m. on Sunday, December 16th at Freeman Real Estate, 988 Bathurst Street.
