Houston-based Venterra Realty recently announced that it contributed $75,000 to the global humanitarian organization Save the Children.
According to a press release, the donation supports children in Ukraine and the surrounding region who may be caught in the middle of armed conflict, forced to flee their homes and exposed to injury, hunger, and winter weather.
“While we cannot deliver help personally, we trust this donation will support those who are already on the ground delivering aid to children and families directly impacted by this devastating conflict,” said Venterra chairman Andrew Stewart.
The company contributed $50,000 and matched employee donations dollar for dollar. Venterra employees made numerous donations, which helped the overall contribution reach over $75,000, the release noted.
“As a company that provides housing options for families, the thought of this many people suddenly being without a home, food or security is hard for us to imagine. Our thoughts and prayers go out to those affected,” said Venterra CEO John Foresi. “We are very grateful for the outpouring of care and concern about this crisis by Venterra team members. The response was clearly represented in the number of generous contributions our employees made to raise funds for Save the Children.”
