CREW Jacksonville seeks to make a lasting, positive impact on our local community, far beyond the commercial real estate industry. CREW Jacksonville members contribute their time and effort to our collective philanthropic efforts:
CREW Jacksonville holds an annual career day for our local philanthropic partner, PACE Center for Girls. During this event, the students are introduced to the many disciplines offered in the realm of commercial real estate. Hands-on exercises are conducted as the girls rotate through all the disciplines with prizes available at the end of the exercise. The event ends with an interactive lunch.
The annual angel tree effort ensures that the girls from PACE have gifts at Christmas. Members have an opportunity to buy angels from a Christmas tree display at a CREW luncheon, the proceeds of which are used to purchase gift cards for the girls. This program provides the opportunity for students and members of their family to receive special holiday gifts.
PACE Holiday Event:
December is a time for celebration and CREW Jacksonville’s fundraiser is festive, fun and rewarding. During the year, the girls from PACE contribute artwork in the form of paintings and Christmas ornaments, that are either part of a silent auction, raffle or can be purchased. All proceeds go back to the school. CREW Jacksonville members contribute their time/resources to assist the girls on these endeavors.
CREW Network Foundation Fundraiser:
An annual fundraiser is held in support of CREW Network Foundation and made possible by many contributions of silent auction items from chapter members. Auction items have included: vacation packages, gift cards, catering services, handmade crafts, artwork, and luxury items such as handbags and jewelry.
