WHY I GIVE BACK TO THE LOCAL ASSOCIATION & THE COMMUNITY
WATCH FOR YOUR NEXT OPPORTUNITY TO VOLUNTEER
Dear Members of HAR:
I’ve only been a Director with HAR for a few short months. During this short period of time I’ve have witnessed some extraordinary efforts by our members and Directors. While I am a licensed REALTOR with Maurer Real Estate Group and own a financial consulting company, my true passion is in Giving Back and am deeply inspired by seeing others do the same.
I believe as REALTORS we work hard and must have a huge amount of faith. The idea of faith and deeds is prevalent to all but not all are as fortunate circumstantially. From there paying it forward is a must for me. Jericho House has formed an alliance with me and is providing tax deductible volunteer opportunities. On March 3, 2019 we worked our first REALTOR sponsored soup kitchen serving homeless, mentally ill, and individuals with addiction. We had an amazing turn out with 2 directors (Gary Spangler and myself) and 2 REALTORS serving. We cooked enough food to serve 75 people. $200 was our initial cost and it was ALL possible with donations from REALTORS. In addition to that one generous member of HAR donated $100 to Jericho project. This program promotes reconciliation with God, Self, Family, and Community. It takes men with addiction off the street until recovery. It gets them back on track financially and gives hope to those that were going to give up. Our soup kitchens provide food to people that may not even have shelter.
HOMETOWN ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE. I’m incredibly proud to be part of this Association that not only takes care of its members but steps out of comfort zones to make a difference to community at a philanthropic level.
If you are looking for ways to volunteer please reach out.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve as a Director.
