RALSC 2019 President Michael “Turk” Taylor (center) presents Denise Burry (second from left), director of Forward Paths, a check for $1,000 in donations gathered from members on the association’s 2019 dues billing.

Thanks to the generosity of its members, the Realtors Association of Lake & Sumter Counties (RALSC) gave $1,000 each to the Families in Transition (FIT) and Forward Paths Foundation for Lake & Sumter Counties.

A check also was presented to Lake County Schools- Families in Transition (FIT) in the amount of $1000. These funds were from member donations from the Realtors Association’s 2019 dues billing.

The Families in Transition program ensures homeless children and youth have equal access to education. Forward Paths supports homeless youths aging out of foster care by providing them with housing, transportation, job skills and other necessary services.

The checks were presented on Dec. 19, and the donations came from RALSC members who value giving back to the community, a news release states. The organization currently has more than 2,300 members.
