CINCINNATI, Ohio. / Jan. 22, 2021 – When the holiday season comes around, one thing the patrons of Cincinnati can be sure of is that real estate agent Jeff Rosa will be extremely active in serving his community.
For the past 20 years, Rosa has helped raise money and donate gifts to the children at St. Joseph Orphanage in Cincinnati during the holidays.
This year was no different, and when Rosa mentioned the endeavor to his co-workers at Weichert, Realtors® – R.E. 1790, team members from the real estate agency jumped at the opportunity to get involved.
“It was great to see our team support such an amazing cause and help make the holiday special for the kids at St. Joseph,” said Kellie Barter, broker/owner of Weichert, Realtors® – R.E. 1790. “Jeff did such an amazing job organizing and planning everything, and the rest of our team was right behind him every step of the way.”
With the fundraising efforts by Rosa, and the help of Weichert, Realtors® – R.E. 1790 and others in the community, a collective $16,000 was raised to purchase gifts for the children.
With Rosa’s organizing and planning efforts in place, the Weichert, Realtors® – R.E. 1790 team spent hours ordering gifts online and having them shipped to St. Joseph.
The culmination of the donation and fundraising efforts by those in the community is normally celebrated with a Christmas party at the orphanage, but due to the ongoing pandemic, the event took place virtually this year. That didn’t stop Rosa and others, as they hopped on their laptops and celebrated the holidays with about 30 children at the orphanage.
“I’m very proud of how everyone came together and made this year’s event happen, especially considering the tough circumstances surrounding the pandemic,” said Rosa. “We purchased gifts for 122 children, had an amazing virtual party and showed the kids at the orphanage that people truly care. This event has always meant so much to me, and I’m glad my co-workers and the community joined in to help make this year special for the kids.”
