Tragedies like the natural disaster seen in Oklahoma bring to light the importance of community solidarity and support. Extending help to those in need enriches both the lives of those we help, and our own. Going beyond the call of real estate is an important part of Michael Saunders & Company values. Through the generosity of our agents and staff, the MSC Foundation provides essential assistance to deserving organizations throughout our community. We are proud to continue our spotlight on the charitable organizations that receive funds from the MSC Foundation: The Junior League of Sarasota The mission of this organization is encapsulated in their slogan: “Women building better communities. That’s the Junior League”. Members of The Junior League of Sarasota reflect a range of backgrounds, working together to help women develop their potential in the community. Encouraging volunteerism, the organization’s purpose is both educational and charitable, and they reach out to women of all ages, races, religions and nationalities to promote participation in charitable pursuits. Each year the organization focuses on a signature project, with this year’s being dedicated to “The Intervention and Prevention of Child Abuse”. ALSO Youth ALSO Youth was established by a group of citizens concerned by the alarming rate of suicide among the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) youth.
