Ambitious Realty: The Importance of Giving Back to Your Community
January 6, 2021
At Ambitious Realty, giving back to our community is of the utmost importance. Over the past year we have come together as a team to fundraise, donate, and volunteer our time to some incredibly deserving organizations in Hamilton.
Recently, the Ambitious team contributed both time and a financial donation to the Cotton Factory’s Light Up the Night event, where a local artist was sponsored to create a sculpture out of lights with the donation. In addition to this, the Ambitious team created their own light feature!
The people experiencing homelessness in Hamilton are currently undergoing a surge in hardship amidst the pandemic, so in an effort to help support basic needs, the Ambitious team assembled and distributed 100 care packages filled with essential supplies such as toiletries, snacks, and warm winter accessories like hats and gloves to those in need. They have also been collecting non-perishable food items in the office for Erich’s Cupboard who will distribute them through Care Mongering Hamilton.
While the holiday season is a wonderful time to give back, charitable organizations are in need of support year round in order to do the important work they do. We have compiled a list of organizations that Ambitious Realty has supported in the past. We encourage you to read through and learn more about how you can support these pillars in the Hamilton community.

Food4Kids provides packages of healthy food for kids with limited or no food during weekend periods. Packages of healthy foods are prepared by volunteers and delivered to schools each Friday to ensure children have nourishment over the weekend. Each food package contains kid friendly, non-perishable and easy to prepare meals with maximum nutrient value.
For many children, hunger is not an occasional missed meal... it is a way of life. Children are often helpless in controlling the food supply in their homes. Food4Kids ensures children lacking food are provided with nourishment vital to their physical, emotional, cognitive, social and academic success. The cost per backpack is $10.00 or $400 to feed a child for an entire school year.
Food4Kids currently provides food for 1,300 children each weekend and 350 throughout the summer months.
