Carolina One Real Estate (CORE) recognized five local nonprofits last month at its first awards distribution ceremony of 2013.

The charitable contributions committee was established in 2006 to distribute grants to Berkeley, Charleston and Dorchester county non-profit organizations. The committee consists of one Carolina One Real Estate Agent from each of the 10 tri-county area offices. The goal is to improve the quality of life in each of these counties by supporting the various organizations that serve these communities. To date the committee has donated in excess of $156,000.00.
