Giving Thanks and Feeding Austin

Portfolio Real Estate agents not only work and live in our community, they support causes and issues that benefit civic interests with their time, expertise and funding.  As we head into the holidays, Spinelli Residential Group is working hard to make Thanksgiving possible for the less fortunate and those in need by putting their support behind Operation Turkey http://www.operationturkey.com/.

Jeannette Spinelli, owner of Spinelli Residential Group at KW Austin Portfolio Real Estate is spearheading the effort and say’s it’s an honor, “We are committed to helping Operation Turkey make Thanksgiving Day, one of giving to the homeless and others in need in our community.” For Spinelli it’s also personal, “I have been a personal financial contributor to Operation Turkey for nine years and have volunteered with the organization each year. My company selected this as one of our corporate charities three years ago. We allocate 1/3 of our financial charitable expenditures to Operation Turkey. I love that you can participate. Writing a check is one thing, but being able to interact with our less advantaged, providing a meal, a smile and a hug is very satisfying. I am passionate about helping when and where I can and feel it's all of our responsibilities to show others love and compassion.” KW Austin Portfolio Real Estate is supporting the fundraising work of Spinelli and her team with contributions.  

Based in Austin, the volunteer organization, Operation Turkey provides meals to the homeless on Thanksgiving in 12 cities and 6 states.  Their goal this year is to provide 40,000 meals. To meet the need in Austin, Spinelli is seeking donations large or small. A donation of only $5 will feed 2 in the capitol city. In addition to monetary donations, agents are collecting personal toiletry items to provide comfort to others including shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpaste, feminine products, soap, disposable razors, and personal wipes like Wet Ones®. Items can be dropped off at the Keller Williams office at 1801 S. Mopac or Austin Portfolio Real Estate at 1611 W 5th St. Suite #100. Toiletry and product donation pick-ups at your home or office can be arranged through November 22, by emailing your address to This email address is being protected from spambots.
