Donation to support Somerville Community Corporation’s work
on affordable housing issues

Verani Realty’s Somerville agents put on their walking shoes to bring awareness to the issue of affordable housing in the Boston area – and they brought a big check with them. After participating in the Somerville Community Corporation’s annual Save Our Homes Walk this June, they delivered a $1,500 donation to the organization on the steps of Somerville City Hall.

The funds were donated through Verani’s philanthropic and social development initiative, VeraniCARES. Verani agents and staff have the option of donating to the fund by either payroll deduction or from sales commissions, and Verani will match up to $10 per donation. VeraniCARES is supporting many community and charitable initiatives across New Hampshire and Massachusetts this spring as part of its May Day campaign, which has dispersed $55,000 worth of donations, supplies, and volunteer work to those in need through nonprofits.

“Part of the goal of VeraniCARES is to focus on shelter-related organizations,” said Charlie Zappala, Regional Manager of Verani’s Somerville office. “Many families are just a paycheck away from losing their housing. Somerville Community Corporation gives local residents a way to stay in their homes during hard times, and we wanted to support the incredible work they do at a grassroots level in Somerville.”

The Somerville Community Corporation is based in grassroots community organizing and is dedicated to creating a Somerville where families and individuals from various backgrounds have equitable access to housing, economic stability, and opportunities for leadership. Their services financial education, real estate development, mediation, and programs for job-seekers and first-time homebuyers. Their annual Save Our Homes Walk is dedicated to preventing homelessness in Somerville.
