Realtors® Care Day 2019 — Wednesday, September 25, 2018
Since its inception, Realtors® Care Day has been a great way for members to give back to the local community through improvements including landscaping and outdoor cleanup. Additional projects can include adaptive and safety modifications for the elderly and disabled. Ultimately, the projects not only restore a homeowner’s pride, but also instill a revitalizing momentum in the community.
Typically, local boards/associations have several volunteers who organize the project, solicit corporate donations, find contractors or other workers if necessary, and provide duties to REALTOR® volunteers on the project days. To support their efforts, NJARHOF also donates up to $1,000 to help cover any other expenses they might incur.
“We’ve seen a tremendous response from homeowners, who repeatedly tell us how appreciative they are of the REALTOR® volunteers and how these projects have so positively impacted their quality of life,” said NJARHOF President Christina Clemans.
If your local board/association has not yet gotten involved but you’d like to learn more, contact Mary Pilaar.
