In each of the nine states Crye-Leike serves, the company’s branch offices and realtors enjoy hosting various creative fundraisers to help the folks in their community who need it most. In addition to supporting Crye-Leike’s annual United Way campaign, the offices enjoy supporting local charities in their communities through activities such as organizing a coat drive for the homeless or inviting the public to a chili cook-off fundraiser. 

“Since first opening our doors in 1977, Crye-Leike has been a company that cares about the communities we serve proudly supporting many charitable organizations including United Way, Youth Villages, Habitat for Humanity and numerous other local charities,” said Crye-Leike Co-founder and CEO Harold Crye. “Crye-Leike is thankful to have so many generous agents and employees who continue to be excited about lending a helping hand to their neighbors in need.”
