Parkdale House with Heart
Buy a home. Support the Food Bank.
Starting in 2021, Alexandra Cote will, once a year, donate her sales commission from the sale of a home to the Parkdale Community Food Bank. The estimated donation will be between $25,000 and $35,000 depending on the sale price of the homes.
Since the beginning of COVID, the number of individuals the Food Bank has been servicing has risen by 175%, about 8,750 people each month.
Currently operating out of a basement, Cote is raising money to find a new home for the Food Bank, where it can be more accessible to the community.
The inaugural year will see the sale of 22 Melbourne Avenue, a 5 bedroom, 2 bathroom house that will be listed on June 23 for $1,099,000 and will be reviewing offers on June 28th at 6:00 pm.
Cote is invested in improving Toronto’s overall livability, as well; she advocates for affordable housing as a volunteer with the city’s regional real estate board, participating in housing discussions at the municipal, provincial and federal levels. She also founded a subcommittee on climate risk as it relates to the real-estate market, an issue which will be more and more of a factor going forward.
