Our Commitment to Giving Back

Norris and Company_Food Pantry 2015

At Norris & Company Real Estate, a commitment to giving back to the community features strongly in our company values. This was keenly reflected during the month of November when the Brokers, Associates and Staff collected non-perishable food items and donated funds to the Food Pantry of Indian River County, a 100% volunteer organization providing emergency food provisions to the disadvantaged, unemployed and underemployed of Indian River County.

The Food Pantry is part of our company’s philanthropic values to help those in need within the community in which we live and work. Food insecurity can have a lasting impact on lives, from education to health to employment and Norris & Company is dedicated to not only help provide nutritious food to families in need, but the potential to improve the lives of many.
