Charity Donations in 2020
Your Castle Real Estate has given back to the community for over a decade, donating to charities and causes every year. In 2020, Your Castle was able to give $75,000 to both the Ronald McDonald House Denver and Boys and Girls Club Denver. These charities help numerous families and children in need across the Denver Metro and we are happy to support them. In total, we donated over $150,000 to charity this year, including hosting our annual holiday toy drive.
Annual Holiday Toy Drive
In 1999, Anna and Don Preston bought a home in Englewood, CO. During this transition, the couple had to temporarily live in one of the local motels along South Broadway over the holidays. It didn’t take long for them to realize most of the other motel residents were far less fortunate, oftentimes living just shy of being homeless. The kids were the hardest part for Anna and Don. Thus, they were determined to somehow make a difference. Every holiday season since Don & Anna Preston deliver toys to children in motels and temporary homes dressed as Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus.
With Covid, their efforts to give back were greatly impacted. They are also getting older and the labor of love it takes to provide for over 100 children for Christmas is not feasible for them anymore. So, Your Castle Real Estate stepped up to help! We provided Elves to collect toys in our office, shop for specific child/family needs, wrap the presents, and help the Preston’s still bring holiday cheer to those in need.
This past holiday season, we were able to provide holiday gifts for 55 families and 185 kids! That is over $10,000 worth of toys and about $10,000 in monetary donations. This past year took a toll on everyone. We were so gracious for the generosity of our community. With their help, we were able to keep the holiday spirit alive for so many struggling families and children.
