An essential part of our culture here at The Michael McDougall Team is giving back. We give back to the community and to our clients through numerous events throughout the year.
KW Energy 11th Annual Turkey Drive
Eleven years ago Michael and two other realtors from Keller Williams Energy were brainstorming ideas for a Christmas fundraiser. They quickly realized what a lot of families are in need of is food and they felt that every family deserves a turkey dinner on Christmas Day. With the help of past clients, families and their sphere the Turkey drive has been able to feed thousands of families year to date and is one of Keller Williams biggest fundraisers.
Thanks to the generosity of the community we were able to provide 2,000 families a full dinner on Christmas Day!
McDougall Team Lights Contest 🎄
To give back to our clients and community this seasons The Michael McDougall Team had a fun competition for the community. Stop by our office with a non-perishable food item and guess how many lights we had used on our office to enter into an awesome prize. With the support of the community, we were able to fill a truckload for Feed the Need Durham, a local emergency food distribution centre that provides food to over 50k people in Durham every year.

Client Christmas Event '17 🎅
We host an annual Christmas Event for our past clients to come to our office and get their pictures taken with Santa himself!! We also decorate cookies, make Christmas crafts, write letters to Santa, have two of his reindeer in the backyard, hot refreshments served and snacks!
Food Drive '17
We donated non-perishable food items to Feed the Need Durham right before Christmas. Our clients brought items to our Christmas event to be donated and our team collected items as well!
We opened our own office at 707 Harmony Rd. N in the fall of 2016. We thought it only fitting to throw a Grand Opening and invite our clients, friends and family to say thank you for all of the continued trust and support! It was an amazing evening that started with the official ribbon cutting with the Mayor. We had live music, craft beer tasting - Town Brewery, signature drinks, oyster bar - Shrimp Cocktails, and tons of prize giveaways including a $3,000 Sunwing vacation!
Movie in the Park
Our very first movie in the park was in 2014, where we turned Mount Joy Park into a mini circus where we had; a large outdoor movie screen, face painters, balloon twisters, cotton candy, popcorn, loot bags, prize giveaways and a food truck. The following year we had Disney Princesses and a live Karate demonstration along with the outdoor movie and snacks. Both events were a huge success with over 2,000 people in attendance.
KW Turkey Drive '17
KW began their Turkey Drive over 10 years ago, providing 50 families with a full turkey dinner on Christmas day. This past Christmas was the 10th Annual Turkey Drive where, thanks to the support of our community, we were able to feed over 2,000 families!
Client Movie Event
The past two years we have hosted a client appreciation event at Cineplex Odeon in Oshawa. We invite our past and present client to a movie and snack on us where we played The Beauty and the Beast and Lego Batman (2017) and Peter Rabbit (2018).
Clothing Drive for Dominica
We donated tons of new and gently used closing to the Hurricane relief in Dominica.
We donated food, toy and treats to the Durham Region Humane Society. Our team also spent a morning volunteering time to help them with cleaning, laundry and playing with the animals.
