Kim Wennerberg, Owner/Broker of Kim & Company Properties, accepted a challenge from a friend and fellow Realtor®/Broker, John C. Jones from Murfreesboro, TN, to help others who are hurting during this COVID-19 pandemic. Wennerberg is issuing a challenge to local businesses in DeFuniak Springs, Freeport and south Walton to join her in this challenge.
Kim & Company will be giving away up to $250 each week for the next few weeks to the person determined to be most in need. “There are a lot of folks who are struggling and this is going to be a big problem financially in their lives. So if you know somebody in need; if you know someone who is really hurt by this and you want to nominate them, send your nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org,” said Wennerberg. Requirements for recipients are: (1) Resident of Walton County (2) Tell how he/she was directly affected financially by Covid-19 in 250 words or less. (3) No self nominations. Wennerberg stated that that three other individuals have come forward to contribute $250 each for a total of $1,000 during the first week of the challenge.
Wennerberg said, “We’re going to get through this. We will be better for it, but we have to come together and help one another out when we need it the most. It is what Christ has called us to do and I’m hoping to be a small part of that. As John C. Jones so wisely said, 10 percent is what happens to us; 90 percent is how we respond. So again, if you have someone you want to nominate that you think is deserving; somebody that has been specifically hurt by COVID-19 by some type of laying-off or unemployment, then I ask you to please nominate them.” email: email@example.com
