Surrey, BC - Each Christmas, 4,000 children from low income families eagerly anticipate receiving gifts donated to the Surrey Christmas Bureau, but last year, more than 900 teenagers were left empty-handed.  When the team at Sutton Premier Realty discovered this sad fact, they decided to "bring on the balls" specifically balls for soccer, basketball, volleyball, baseball and other sports.  They issued an industry wide challenge and their team alone delivered 260 balls to the Surrey Christmas Bureau.

When the charity's staff and volunteers opened their receiving bay doors to find the massive collection of sports gear, one of them explained: "I can't believe how many balls you guys mamanged to bring in!  that is amazing!  soccer balls are flying off the shelves this year especially."

This donation of sports equipment is worth approximately $1,800 and will bring countless hours of fun and fitness to hundres of young people.  REALTORS, Brokers and staff at Sutton Premier Realty personally contributed to purchase the balls and they are pleased to report that a few members of the public also stopped by with donations.

Managing Broker Sadaf Baig notes that they Surrey Christmas Bureau is still looking for donations for kids 8 years of age and older.  The drop off location is 6878 King George highway in Surrey.  It is not too late for people to get into the spirit to make the holidays brighter for those less fortunate.

Over the past several years, Sutton Premier Realty has raised more than $30,000 to provide food, toys and other gifts to lower income people.  Last year, they delivered holiday joy to 15 families including 25 children.
