Community Benefit Program

The Community Benefit Program was announced in 2016 focusing on Danberry efforts volunteering in our community. The Danberry Co, Realtors; it’s Management Team, Agents and Staff, have collectively contributed more than 8,465 hours of community service to approximately 100 organizations, churches and schools in and around Toledo throughout the past two years as part of our Community Benefits Program. 

The Danberry Community Benefits Program is designed to increase and enhance the efforts by Danberry Family Members in giving back to the community by focusing attention on individual efforts and rewarding a select few of them on an annual basis.

Every member of the team is being encouraged to give at least 4 hours a year (June 1st –May 31st) back to the community in an activity that the individual selects. If requirements are met the team member is invited to an event with their spouse or significant other. At the event, 3 members of the Danberry Family will be selected by a panel of non-Danberry judges for their outstanding contributions. $1000, $500 and $250 will be awarded to the charities or activities of the 3 selectees.

The Danberry Co. Realtors and ProMedica have an existing and ongoing partnership, the Danberry Treasure Chest, which has supported local families for more than 23 years.  This collaboration has resulted in over one million dollars raised, assisting over 750 local families at Toledo Children’s Hospital, with children facing severe chronic diseases.

“Most volunteers give of their time not for recognition but to help others. WE recognize that BUT we believe that by sharing our efforts, we can serve as a positive example to others which will result in motivating them to also volunteer.” Says Danberry, CEO, Lynn Fruth.

“At Danberry we firmly believe that we can best live our mission with strong leadership guiding the company and instilling from the top down the importance of serving others,” commented Danberry CEO, Lynn Fruth. 

Danberry’s 2nd Annual Community Benefit Event

Giving back to the community is vital to our company’s mission. We have several fundraising events throughout the year, including the Danberry Golf Outing and the Danberry Treasure Chest. We find it important to encourage our agents to become individually involved  in local organizations that are near and dear to their hearts, as well. Which is why we started the Danberry Annual Community Benefit Event last year.

Any agent that volunteers for at least 4 hours throughout the year is invited to attend the event, which was held at The Heights at the Renaissance Hotel in Downtown Toledo last night. A non-Danberry panel of judges picks 3 agents who deserve extra recognition for their outstanding achievements, and additional donations are given to the organizations of their choice.

The first place $1,000 check for a charity of her choice, went to Jill Kegler for her time working with Habitat for Humanity, United Way of Toledo, Toledo Chamber of Commerce, Lott Industries and TASBA. A second place, $500 check for his charity of choice went to Sean Rizor for his contribution to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief and Hurricane Irma clean-up. The third place, $250 check was awarded to Lisa Sedlak for her charity of choice as a result of her volunteer efforts towards Good Grief of Northwest Ohio, All Saints Catholic School and Mom’s House of Toledo. Danberry agent Victoria Valle generously offered to match each of these donations.


Together, the Danberry team volunteered more than 5,600 hours from June of last year until the end of May. We’re so proud of all of our agent’s for their hard work and dedication to the community. We look forward to another successful Community Benefit in 2019!
