Keller Williams Grand Junction Realty

KW Cares, the philanthropic division of Keller Williams, at Keller Williams Grand Junction Realty helped Santa out this Christmas by donating much needed toys and gifts to the Western Slope Center for Children at the Grand Junction Association of Realtors Christmas Social on Wednesday, Dec. 2.

The Western Slope Center for Children, located at 259 Grand Ave., is a Child Advocacy Center, providing services to child sexual abuse victims and their families in a supportive environment that reduces trauma and promotes dignity, justice and healing in Mesa County.

KW Cares requested that the Toys for Tots Foundation donate to the Western Slope Center for Children through Greg Merschel, coordinator for Toys for Tots in eight local counties.  Greg is also an active Keller Williams Grand Junction Realtor.  Twenty-five MP3 players, a dozen bilingual phones for kids, basketballs, coloring books, remote control cars, stuffed animals, and dozens of games were donated to the organization at the Realtor annual event.

KW Cares thanks all those who donated to Toys for Tots this year and helped make this gift possible.

Keller Williams Grand Junction Realty is located at 715 Horizon Drive, Suite 225.
