Giving Tuesday is a day of giving celebrated on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. This global movement is fueled by the power of social media. It's a great time to consider giving to these organizations that provide services locally.
It is our hope at Alpine Lakes Real Estate that as we enter this holiday season, you're able to find even the briefest moment of solace with loved ones whether it's at home, outdoors, or via Zoom. From our family to yours, Happy Holidays!
