POOLER, Ga. (WTOC) - A local non-profit that helps children in foster care and just out of the system is now getting some much-needed help.
Gilliard and Company in Pooler was given a check for just over $1,200 from Trisha Cook Realty Tuesday.
Making this donation even more incredible, it won’t be the last. For the entire year a percentage of every single closing will be going directly to Gilliard and Company.
Money they will be presenting to them each quarter, and they expect will be higher each time.
Supporting a cause close to their heart that will make a big impact.
“Everyone wanted to give back to children or young adults, so this was perfect. Because we deal with housing and this deals with housing young adults, this was just a natural match,” said Trisha Cook.
A bit of a surprise however for Gilliard & Company CEO Whitney Gilliard.
“That’s stuff you see in the movies, you read articles about so to have that happen to us it’s just unbelievable.”
This money will help them in assisting young adults just out of the foster care system who are transitioning to new homes by providing furniture, kitchen utensils and other items the Gilliard says many have never had before.
