Red Oak R.O.O.F.

In 1985, the owners of Red Oak Realty sought a way to give back a portion of their business earnings to the communities they serve. To that end, Red Oak Opportunity Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, charitable organization, was formed. Funding comes from Red Oak Realty agents, owners, staff, local businesses, clients, and private contributors. Grants are awarded annually to deserving local organizations. Since its inception, total R.O.O.F. contributions exceed $550,000. This year Red Oak and it’s supporters raised $88,539!  I am proud to say that I am a supporter of R.O.O.F.
