Toys For Tots

Posted on by

We are happy to announce that Guarantee Real Estate sales offices will serve as drop off locations for Toys for Tots.

Toys for Tots is a program run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve which distributes toys to local children whose parents can’t afford to buy them for Christmas. Guarantee Real Estate is pleased to join the mission of the program which is to “DELIVER” smiles through giving new and unwrapped toys.

Teamwork and community involvement will make this project a huge success. Therefore, every Valley resident is encouraged to share this announcement throughout the surrounding communities. Please encourage everyone that you know to join our efforts in providing joy, goodwill, and cheer to children less fortunate. It doesn’t cost much to put a smile on a child’s face, but a smile that YOU create by giving is priceless!

Guarantee Sponsors Able Advocates!

Posted on by


The Guarantee Good Will Network recently made a $1000 donation to Able Advocates. The donation will assist the organization with its mission: to provide services and equipment for Central California children with special needs.

“Thank you Guarantee for your kind support…This donation is not just going towards our Equipment Closet, but it will help build stronger communities through networking, ensure that ALL children are loved and feel important, and it will provide a pathway for them to succeed.” -Katrina Oh, Founder, Able Advocates

How it All Began
5 years ago, Katrina Oh started Able Advocates to benefit children like her son Nathan, who was born with a rare brain disorder. Although Nathan was denied insurance services, Katrina became relentless and she never allowed hardships to prevent her from providing the best care for her son. Sometimes Katrina’s determination required her to pay for services out of her own pocket.

Through connecting with other families who experienced the same challenges with insurance companies, Katrina felt it necessary to start a support group for mothers with special needs children. Together these extraordinary women worked hard to create significant changes for local special needs children.

The Success of Able Advocates
Since it’s conception, Able Advocates has provided support, equipment, and care for over 2,000 Fresno area families. However, their goal is to accomplish much more.

You can help support Able Advocates by attending their benefit concert, on September 14, at the Toca Madera Winery. This concert is an exciting event you won’t forget; offering food trucks, Lolo Hawaiian Shaved Ice, and Toca Madera Wine for sale. A silent auction will take place as well. All proceeds will go to Able Advocates Equipment Closet. Click HERE to purchase your tickets.
