Chip Barkel

Ever since he started in real estate, REALTOR® Chip Barkel made a commitment to donate to charitable organizations in the communities he did business in. He has donated to community gardens, local churches, women’s shelters, hospitals, and the AIDS Committee of Durham, among others. In 2020, he decided to focus his efforts on donating bicycles to the Toronto Firefighters' Toy Drive – a cause that’s close to home for him, as both his father and grandfather were volunteer firefighters. Last year, he donated 25 bicycles and is hoping to grow this number in 2022 with additional donations to the York Region Police's Holiday Heros Toy Drive.
