Outreach Committee

In the true spirit of our real estate roots, the CREW Community Service effort involves many hands-on projects ranging from the design and construction of the labyrinth at the Grace Montessori School in Allentown, to the building of the display house within the Habitat for Humanity Restore in Whitehall, to its latest project of the building of a playhouse to be raffled off to benefit Habitat for Humanity. CREW Lehigh Valley is a very generous group of individuals and companies.

CREW volunteers have spent many hours supporting the Sixth Street Shelter (a safe haven for homeless families with children). Our members have watched children so parents could attend meetings to develop a range of family-building skills. We have also organized classes in smart grocery shopping, and have held numerous collection drives for food, clothing, and baby supplies to support the ever-growing needs of shelter families. Other activities of the CREW Community Service Committee include catering a dinner for Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Hospital pediatric patients and their families and also supporting Turning Point of Lehigh Valley and the Children’s Home of Easton with Christmas gifts for individuals who might otherwise have a cheerless holiday.

 

The Outreach Committee is dedicated to providing opportunities for young women in commercial real estate.   Our local committee will coordinate high school and university outreach programs (CREW Careers and UCREW).  The outreach programs will educate the next generation of women about opportunities for them in the commercial real estate world.  Our committee supports CREW Network Foundation – this is the charitable arm of CREW Network which provides scholarships to Commercial Real Estate female students as well as does industry research to support women in commercial real estate. We also work to help women in our community who need assistance by focusing on community projects that relate to commercial real estate and/or supporting women. We will also continue our holiday tradition of donating gifts to Valley shelters and agencies.
