This holiday season, our Pasadena office agents fulfilled the holiday wishes of 25 local children by sponsoring a Five Acres Wish Tree. These children living in foster care will definitely feel the extra love! Organized by Podley Properties agents Michael Robleto & Matt LeSueur, each card on the tree represented ‘gift wishes’ by a specific child. We are grateful of our agents for helping to spread holiday cheer throughout the community.
Five Acres is a non-profit based out of Altadena. Their mission is to promote loving and permanent family solutions to foster children. These three pillars; safety, well-being and permanency provide the framework for all of their current programs. They work to preserve successful childcare programs and develop innovative services for children and families in crisis. Five acres has served over 100,000 persons since its founding in 1888. They currently care for 8,700 children and families annually, across five counties!
