When they see an opportunity to help a local organization, they are often the first to jump in and lend a hand.
In 2007, this husband and wife team began selling real estate in the Portland area. At that time, they also became very involved in their local community of Wilsonville.
Over the years, their involvement has grown, and today, the Beltrans support numerous worthwhile causes in and around Wilsonville.
Community Involvement and Recognition
Recently, Jaimy and Sherine were recognized for all of their hard work and dedication when they received the 2015 Wilsonville First Citizen award.
The award, presented by the Wilsonville Rotary Club, honors those who exemplify servant leadership through their business, volunteering, and philanthropic efforts.
As Rotary Club President Kyle Bunch explained, “The Beltrans have set a high bar when it comes to serving the community in many different ways. They exemplify the spirit of service that makes the Wilsonville community so special.”
“We are honored and humbled to join the amazing people who were also nominated, and we look forward to making an even bigger impact over the years,” said Jaimy.
They’re off to a great start. Jaimy is an active member of Kiwanis, and Sherine is helping to organize a major fundraising event this summer for local charities.
