RealtyTrac establishes RealtyTouch Charitable Foundation focused on local housing assistanceMortgagePress.comRealtyTrac, RealtyTouch Charitable Foundation, Village of Hope, Families Forward RealtyTouch, the charity program launched earlier this year by RealtyTrac, the an online foreclosure marketplace, has completed successful campaigns benefitting two local Orange County, Calif. charities so far in 2008. In their first-ever charitable campaign, RealtyTrac employees collected more than 1,300 books in February to benefit the children at the Village of Hope located in Tustin, Calif., easily exceeding the original goal of collecting 1,000 books for the charity. In April, the company followed up with a coin drive benefitting Families Forward located in Irvine, Calif. With an initial goal of raising $500, the campaign ended up netting $1,001.56 to be donated to the charity resulting from a combination of individual contributions and the proceeds from a pizza lunch sale. "With the creation of RealtyTouch, the management team and employees of RealtyTrac have dedicated themselves to servicing needy families in Orange County by giving of their time and through charitable contributions in such a way as to make a real difference in the lives of others," said James J. Saccacio, chief executive officer of RealtyTrac. "I feel it is essential for us as a company to give back to the greater Orange County community in which we reside and prosper. I am overwhelmed by the efforts of our people and the way they stepped up to the plate and delivered on behalf of these two charities. I look forward to the two remaining charity drives we have planned for this year." For more information, visit
