Giving back is one of L’ A G E N C E core values and is part of our company culture. We are passionate about supporting the many organizations and nonprofits working hard to make our world a better place. We are committed to making a difference in our local communities by volunteering, supporting start-up businesses, donating money and ultimately, improving people’s lives, through their home community.

L’ A G E N C E is a proud sponsor of the following organizations:
Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals®:
With every commission check, L’ A G E N C E realtors make a donation to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Since 1992, RE/MAX agents have helped Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals® support millions of kids each year who are treated at member hospitals throughout North America. Our donations stay local, which means RE/MAX agents who participate in the Miracle Home Program are helping kids in their own neighborhoods receive the best care possible.
Browns Valley Elementary School:
Located on the west side of the town of Napa, Browns Valley Elementary School, is one of the 18 public elementary schools in the Napa Valley Unified District (NVUSD). As parents and community members, we love to volunteer our time, donate money, and sponsor events to improve the education and growth of the students. Florence Ropelewski Realtor has been an active sponsor of BVES and the Family Club since her oldest son, Adam, entered Kindergarten in 2019.
Napa Moms is a non-profit organization designed for working and stay-at-home mothers of children living in the Napa Valley. The mission of Napa Moms is to enhance the lives of mothers in the Napa Valley by providing valuable community resources and fostering a supportive community for mothers to share experiences and develop friendships for a healthy life balance. Florence has been on the board of Napa Moms since 2018 and currently serves as the Director of Sponsorship.
NV Dance Company:
NV Dance Company is the only non-profit dance school in the Napa Valley. They offer scholarship programs for low income families and single parent households. When you enroll your child with them, you are giving another child the opportunity to dance, that would have otherwise not been able to.
- Valley Clean-up
This project was inspired by Florence’s oldest son, Adam, who is a nature lover. Our family loves going to the beach and would always commit an hour or two to cleaning up the beach, picking up plastic and other trash to “save the marine life.” They started adopting this activity while on vacation and even back home, while on hikes. Realizing the impact of group and compound efforts, the Ropelewski family started organizing cleanup days with friends and families in Napa. Everyone is welcome. If you are interested in joining our next clean up, please fill out the form below or contact Florence at Florence@lagence-napavalley.com
- Placencia Donation Drive
Over the years, the Ropelewskis have enjoyed traveling to Belize, more specifically to Placencia. Placencia is a small peninsula measuring about 1 mile across and 16 miles north and south attached to the southeastern corner of Stann Creek District in southeastern Belize. Placencia is approximately 160 miles (by land) south of Belize City and 33 miles south of Dangriga, the capital of Stann Creek District. With the help of the resort we stay at, Turtle Inn, we participate in community service projects, such as delivering donation items to deserving schools, organizations and villages, or cleaning up the beach and other nature areas.
