In December 2018, PalmerHouse Properties launched its PHP CARES program!! PHP CARES was established to give you an easy way to give back to the community. Based on recommendations made by our Agents, PHP CARES will donate to one charity each quarter. Our PHP CARES Charity Committees have selected the Charity Organization for Georgia and Florida. We are pleased to announce that PalmerHouse, through its agents’ generous contributions, will be donating $2,500 to the Team Summer and Englewood Animal Rescue Sanctuary (EARS). A HUGE THANK YOU to every agent who contributed to the PHP CARES program for 2019.
We will be selecting our 2020 PHP CARES Charities in January.
Georgia PHP Cares
Team Summer was created by Summer Dale, daughter of one of our agents, Lynne Dale. Diagnosed with cancer at the age of 15, Summer came to realize that kids with cancer were the only ones who could truly understand what she was going through. She began surprising them with special gifts to cheer them up and connect with them for mutual support. Summer lost her battle in 2012, but her unique approach to gift-giving continues to uplift children still fighting cancer. The kids she gave gifts to became the givers; then those kids became givers, and so on. Team Summer raises money to fund the gifts, and all gifts are given from one kid with cancer to another kid with cancer. Giving creates in these kids a sense of purpose and satisfaction at a time when so much in their lives is out of their control.
Florida PHP Cares
Englewood Animal Rescue Sanctuary (EARS) is a volunteer-based organization of animal lovers that rescues dogs and cats from overcrowded high-kill shelters in Miami-Dade, Hillsborough, Broward, Arcadia, Sebring and Collier County, FL. EARS works by pulling animals from the shelters and placing them in loving foster homes until they can find their forever homes. They also run a sanctuary, adoption center, and thrift store. Since many of the helpless animals that are rescued come in hungry, sick, abused and neglected, EARS provides them with medical care and a safe place to begin a new life. All pets adopted through EARS are vetted, spayed/neutered and microchipped. Your donations provide all of these services and allows them to also provide free food and medical care for foster parents of animals that once faced nearly-certain death.
