Local real estate company holds food drive

For the second year, CORE Real Estate held a food drive for the Salvation Army

Last week, a Yorkton real estate company held a food drive with the donators getting something in return.
CORE Real Estate held a food drive with all donations going towards the local Salvation Army. Those who donated received a pumpkin as a thank you for their contributions.
Corey Werner, the broker and owner of CORE Real Estate, said that this year's drive went well.
"It's been really great. We've had lots of people come in and do some donations," he said. "We've had quite a few cash donations, which is great because we can go and ask Salvation Army what the specific needs that they need right now are, and then go and purchase those items.
This is the second year that CORE has held the event, and Werner said he started it as he wanted to help out and give back to the community.
"Last year, because of what was going on with COVID, with some people not being able to work, funds were maybe a little tighter for some people, so I feel there was a little more uptake for the needs and people going to the Salvation Army."
Werner said that compared to last year, there were a few more donations dropped off, especially cash donations, something they didn't have last year.
Werner added that he definitely plans on holding a third-annual food drive next year, though he did note things might be a little different.
