GAVAR receives surprise gift

PALMDALE – At a recent “networking meeting” of the Greater Antelope Valley Association of Realtors®, Wells Fargo’s Vickie Zenkner presented GAVAR President, Dave Slover, with a check for $1,000.

The unexpected gift was in support of GAVAR’s TLC/ Chartable Giving program.

Established in 1988, the program helps to support the emotional needs of children exposed to trauma or abuse.

In recent years, the charity has expanded to giving bears to elderly nursing home patients, those with Alzheimer’s disease, and victims of natural disasters, who also need much emotional support.

They distribute toys, bears, and other stuffed animals through 22 local agencies, like Antelope Valley Hospital.
