Here at Chase International, we are taking steps to ensure the well-being of our company and also our community.
We want to recognize some of our associates who have been contributing to their communities and helping to make the world a better place. Here are some of the ways that they are volunteering.
We’d love to hear about how you’re supporting your community. Send an email to [email protected]
Mana Shisler from our Sparks office generously donated Surgical Masks to the Karma Box project which aims to provide the less fortunate with basic necessities such as food, hygiene products and other supplies by placing donation boxes around the Downtown, Reno area. Cary DeMars who is also from our Sparks office, hopes to continue to help the community with this amazing organization.
Becky Arnold from our Tahoe City office is hoping to help her community by making "Covid 19 Survival Packs" for less fortunate homebound children. The survival packs include an assortment of colorful markers, stickers, puzzles, and glitter.
Dawn Caldwell from our Carson Valley office offers to run errands for her elderly prospects. She has also volunteered to go to the property they are interested in and do virtual showings by recording house tours whenever clients are unable to meet at the property.
Sierra Sheppard from our Carson Valley office is still working at Trader Joe's as she transitions into full-time real estate. Since the outbreak, she has been working at Trader Joe’s five days a week and has been offering her assistance to anyone who needs help shopping for groceries. She is helping the elderly daily, doing shopping for them while they wait in their cars or upfront to limit social contact. Sierra says "If you know anyone who needs groceries or help getting their groceries to them I am available to help. I am able to get first dibs on goods as they arrive so allow people to contact me if they need assistance."
Becky Arnold from our Tahoe City office has opened a "Covid Lending Library" where members of the community can come and borrow books and movies. The Library is open 24/7 and is located on the covered porch at 520 Rawhide, off Granlibakken Road in Tahoe City.
Annette Brooks from our Carson Valley office spent a day making trays of enchiladas, soups and chilis to take to her elderly clients some of which are located in Carson City, Dayton and clients who just closed escrow who need a meal or two. She says, "It was most therapeutic for myself and my grocery store runner, my husband Pat!"
Amy Atkins from our Property Management Department spent an entire day making masks for local Doctors, nurses and some at-risk friends who needed them most. She asked friends and family to each sponsor a mask with a donation, and used the funds to buy food for her community in Virginia City. She did this to support local restaurants and to donate the masks to the healthcare workers in the area.
Dan Pitman from our Reno office partnered with local restaurant owner Kris Lueamrung at Bangkok Cuisine to provide lunches for the ER staff at both Renown locations and Saint Mary's Hospitals. Bangkok Cuisine has been donating their efforts weekly to help show support for our community medical workers.
Easperee Landy from our Reno office and her family have made over 100 cloth masks for the Reno Fire Department and the Nevada Highway Patrol and are working on making 300 with the help of some other community members.
