Trying our Success to Giving Back in 2020
We have been fortunate that the real estate market bounced back this summer, and we are paying it forward. If you and/or your business is one of the lucky ones, think about tying your success with giving back. We've donated $100 to Portland Buy Local and $100 to the local non-profit of our clients' choosing for every 2020 sale. For the first half of the year, that makes $8,000 back into the community that supports us.
Tom and Amy Landry of Benchmark Real Estate presented $4,000 for the first half of this year’s sales to staff and board members of Portland Buy Local this past month.

Benchmark's Portland Kids Duathlon Raises $8,000 for Portland Schools
In our third year presenting the Portland Kids Duathlon, we raised $8,000 for the Foundation for Portland Public Schools, now totaling $23,000 since we started the event. Our sponsors stuck with us and we were thrilled with the outpouring of support from our athletes and families despite moving to virtual. We had 92 virtual participants from across Maine and NH. The next Portland Kids Duathlon will be held on July 25th, 2021 at Payson Park in Portland. So, save the date!
Also a big thank you to Hammond Lumber and CycleMania for donating equipment for the East End Community School Bike Club. Have a used bike to donate to kids that can't afford their own? Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
