The Glenda Williamson Team is excited to announce that this summer, we will be donating the proceeds of our 100th home sale to five local charities. We want the surrounding community to decide which charity will receive the largest donation, so we are currently holding an online vote to decide the top voted charity. The donations will be distributed among the five chosen charities according to their finishing results in our online vote.
Each voter will chose one of the following five charities, and the proceeds of our 100th sale will be split up according to the poll results. The winner will receive the highest percent of the proceeds, and the second, third, and fourth place precipitants will each receive smaller percentages. Below, you will find information on each charity along with a link to submit your vote for your favorite charity.

Hudson's Halfway Home
Beginning as a pug and boston terrier rescue, Hudson’s Halfway Home has grown into a rescue mission that focuses on puppies born with special needs. Most puppies rescued through Hudson’s are born with a cleft palate, hydrocephalus, neurological issues, and missing body parts (to name a few.) Many of the puppies require extensive, round the clock care. Before being placed up for adoption, puppies must be vaccinated, spayed or neutered, micro chipped, and brought to good health.
