Jamestown, NY (Wednesday, April 12, 2023) Howard Hanna Holt Real Estate has been helping families make a home for generations. Stephen Holt, owner, and broker created a $10,000 endowment at the WCA Foundation to benefit new parents and newborns at UPMC Chautauqua Women’s Maternity Care Center.

Celebrating the birth of their daughter and the endowment gift to the hospital, Shawn and Megan Whitmer recently welcomed daughter, Bree, at 6 pounds, 14 ounces. They have waited patiently for this day. Megan said, “It feels surreal. It’s truly a miracle.” Shawn agrees, “We are excited through the roof with happiness.” The Whitmers look forward to bringing Bree home and introducing her to family, and to one special family member, their beloved dog, Abby.
