Thanks to the generosity of its members, the Realtors Association of Lake & Sumter Counties (RALSC) gave $1,000 each to the Families in Transition (FIT) and Forward Paths Foundation for Lake & Sumter Counties.
The Families in Transition program ensures homeless children and youth have equal access to education. Forward Paths supports homeless youths aging out of foster care by providing them with housing, transportation, job skills and other necessary services.
The checks were presented on Dec. 19, and the donations came from RALSC members who value giving back to the community, a news release states. The organization currently has more than 2,300 members.
