Corcoran Platinum Living Real Estate Agent Offers Free Photos with Santa
By Laura Slawny - Wednesday Nov 18, 2020
Many families who are struggling right now rely on community nonprofit organizations to help them feed and shelter their children. For these families, there is no extra money for Christmas gifts. That’s why professionals at three Valley real estate industry companies are teaming up to raise money and toys for Homeward Bound, a nonprofit that helps families that are homeless create pathways out of poverty.

Michelle Noma, real estate agent with Corcoran Platinum Living, hopes a free socially distanced visit with Santa will inspire local families to embrace the spirit of giving this holiday season. Noma is hosting Socially Distant Santa Photos, a free event for children that will take place December 6, 2020 from 1pm – 4pm in front of the fountain on High Street in City North, located in Desert Ridge.

Noma encourages parents to reserve a time slot at and bring an unwrapped toy or make a donation to help a child have a better Christmas this year. All donations will go to Homeward Bound, which gives families a second chance by helping them find stable housing and get the help they need.

To reach her goal of 100 toys for Homeward Bound, Noma teamed up with two colleagues in the real estate industry. Angie Sanich of Pioneer Title and Kristie Varga of Sun West Mortgage are encouraging clients, colleagues, and friends to donate to their campaign.

The public can also drop off toys by December 6th at Pioneer Title, located at 5355 E. High Street, Suite 131, which is located at City North in Desert Ridge.

“Corcoran Platinum Living is thrilled to support this wonderful giving campaign that is not only collecting toys for children in need, but also giving back by offering families free photos with Santa,” said Michelle Macklin.
“There are many companies within the local real estate industry, and the partnership these ladies have shown reflects our values of giving back to our community and building strong relationships.”
