Giving Back to El Paso

I have started a new program for 2009, designed to give back to the people of El Paso. I call it "Move With A Purpose." I believe very strongly in giving back to the community. There are many ways to do it, donations, volunteer your time, etc... Anything you can do to make a difference.

In 2009 I am going to donate 20% of every real estate commission earned to a local charity. In order to participate and help make a difference just go to my website and click on Move With A Purpose. If you are buying or selling a home, register here and help make a difference in El Paso.

I am looking for additional charities to add to my partner list, so if you know of a good cause let me know and we'll get it added to the list. My goal is to give away as much money as I can in 2009. Help me out.

Jim Valenti for President

Okay, maybe not president, however congratulations are in order for Jim and his staff at Thomason Hospital. Thomason Hospital was named one of the top 100 hospitals in the US. One of only 7 in the great state of Texas and one of only four public hospitals in the nation. These awards are based on studies of clinical processes and outcomes, patient safety, operational efficiency and financial stability. Our hospital is a great asset for El Paso and we are fortunate to have Jim running it.
