Vintage Real Estate, LLC
"Altrusa of Albany KidzShop at Heritage Mall"
Vintage Real Estate’s Heritage Mall partnered with the Altrusa Club of Albany to host an award-winning event: KidzShop. KidzShop welcomed 315 low-income children from neighboring communities for a back-to-school shopping spree and served as a key highlight of a yearlong charitable campaign. Several fundraisers were organized throughout the year to solicit donations, which were augmented by grants to raise a total of $32,000. The program sustained continued support from the community, accumulating more than 2,000 volunteer hours in the form of monthly meetings, a major dining event, and an auction that attracted 450 community members. For their inspiring efforts, Heritage Mall was the recipient of the Overall U.S. Community Support Award. In their honor, the ICSC Foundation donated $10,000 to the Altrusa Club of Albany.
