Two local nonprofits got some extra help this month thanks to a local nonprofit organization, The Intero Foundation. The Intero Foundation gave grants totaling $18,000 to Community Solutions and the Learning and Loving center. The grants will support the organization’s shared mission of providing help to children in need.
Community Solutions, a nonprofit organization based out of Morgan Hill, received $8,000. Its mission is to provide a comprehensive spectrum of prevention, intervention, treatment, and residential services to the communities of South Santa Clara County, South San Jose and San Benito County. The Learning and Loving, Education Center, also based out of Morgan Hill, is a non-profit educational project lead by the Sisters of the Presentation. The $10,000 grant they received will go towards the work of the Learning & Loving Education Center by providing educational opportunities and outreach to low-income immigrant women and their children who are living in south Santa Clara County of Northern California.
“In these challenging economic times, more and more people are in need of assistance and the Intero Foundation believes that by working together we can help solve these challenges,” said Russ Warrick, Realtor and Intero Morgan Hill Foundation representative. “We are proud to present a check for all the hard work these two wonderful organizations do to support the kids in our community.”
The Intero Foundation is a non–profit organization founded in 2003 that has raised more than $1.5 million to benefit children living in the communities we serve. The Intero Foundation is funded, promoted and governed by the real estate agents at Intero Real Estate services. All members of the Intero community – executives, staff and agents – donate their time to further the Foundation’s mission.
To date, the Intero Foundation has lent its support to over 70 local charities – organizations that range in size and mission, but all work to positively impact the growth and well being of children by enhancing their education and personal development.
