The 74-Residence Community Will Donate $500 Per Sold Home to SchoolForce, the Belmont-Redwood Shores Public School Foundation

BELMONT, CA (March 13, 2019) – The Ashton, a new luxury condominium community from Regis Homes Bay Area (RHBA) located at 400 El Camino Real in Belmont, has pledged to donate $37,000 to SchoolForce, the Belmont-Redwood Shores Public School Foundation. $500 will be donated to the foundation for each home sold in the 74-residence community, which has sold over 50 percent of its homes since sales launched last November. A $3,500 check for the first seven closings was delivered to SchoolForce representatives at a recent reception attended by Belmont Mayor Davina Hurt, Belmont city officials, SchoolForce staff, community leaders, and new residents.

 “We’re excited that The Ashton is able to give back to the Belmont community and support our local schools through SchoolForce,” says Jeff Smith, Senior Vice President of Residential Development at RHBA. “With The Ashton, our ultimate goal is to contribute positively to the Belmont community, whether it’s by funding local educational programs to improve students’ access to vital areas, or by contributing new housing and retail options along El Camino Real for nearby residents.”
