Sponsorships, Donations and Fundraising
Fitzpatricks Real Estate loves giving a helping hand whenever possible. Giving back to the local community of Wagga Wagga is the most common practice, however over the years Fitzpatricks has helped a variety of charities through sponsorships, donations and fundraising.
Heart for the Homeless
Ever moved home and found yourself throwing out things that you knew may have been of value to someone, but is more a hassle for you to include in the move?
Sometimes these items will be transported by you to local charities, sometimes they end up in the bin.
Heart for the Homeless provides a service where people can register their move on their website, list the items they no longer need and a local charity will collect the items directly from their house. It doesn’t really get much simpler than that!
Fitzpatricks has been a supporter of Heart for the Homeless since 2011. For more information please visit heartforthehomeless.orghttp://www.heartforthehomeless.org/
