           (RAH) Realtors Against Homelessnes-Township High School District 211 Foundation has been nominated to win a $24,000 grant from Baird & Warner’s Good Will Network. 10 local charities were nominated by Baird & Warner’s Chicagoland sales offices, and the general public has been asked to visit vote.bairdwarner.com, now through August 31 to vote for five nonprofits who will receive $24,000 grants.         

          Baird & Warner launched the $24K of Solid Good campaign in 2017 as a way of involving the larger Chicagoland community in its dedication to helping local charities fight homelessness. The company asked its real estate agents, loan officers, and employees to nominate local shelter-related nonprofits they see making a difference in their own neighborhoods. 

          “The people of Chicagoland are more than clients. They’re our neighbors, and it is our duty and privilege to help our neighbors whenever we can,” said Jennifer Alter Warden, chief operating officer and executive vice president of Baird & Warner, Chicagoland’s largest locally owned independent residential real estate services company. “Our local sales teams are an integral part of their communities, and they regularly take it upon themselves to help their neighbors in need. From month-long donation drives to annual fundraising events, our branch offices are empowered to make a positive difference in our neighborhoods.”

          The 10 nominated organizations provide a humbling array of services and supports across Chicagoland. From now to August 31, the public can click here to vote for the charities that should receive $24,000. The five charities with the most votes will receive the grants.
