"Julie Baker does a phenomenal job running this nonprofit and the programs for the children are a huge asset and value to the community," said John Miller, broker/owner of Intero Real Estate Services. "The positive impact this has on the children, their families and the community as a whole is the reason why this is our second grant to the program in just over two years."

"The money we raise here, stays her to help our children," Miller said. "Every Real Estate agent in our company gives a portion of their commissions earned to our foundation. I am very proud of the fact we have 100 percent participation. We also get a great turnout from the agents, the administration staff and our preferred vendors for our fundraisers."
