Local realtors give back through “Realtors Are Good Neighbors” initiative
MOHAVE COUNTY – The Arizona Realtors is making a difference statewide through the “Realtors are Good Neighbors” initiative. This program from the National Association of Realtors (NAR) encourages members of statewide and local associations to join in on the nationwide philanthropic initiative while maximizing the impact of their volunteer time.
“From monetary donations to blood drives to fire and flood relief, Arizona Realtors are doing their part to give back to programs and nonprofit organizations across the state,” says Scott Drucker, CEO of the Arizona Realtors. “This outpouring of support from our members not only serves our neighbors but strengthens our communities.”
The Arizona Realtors started 2023 off strong by contributing $15,000 to the Arizona Housing Fund, a dedicated and sustainable funding source for nonprofit agencies that build and operate permanent supportive, low-income, and working poor housing units. This support from the Arizona Realtors will ensure that more housing units are constructed that meet the growing needs of the community in Arizona and help contribute to the overall goal to reduce homelessness.
The Kingman/Golden Valley Association of Realtors takes part in several different charitable projects and events throughout the year such as blood drives with Vitalant and donation drives with Toys for Tots. The association also engages its membership with fun events like the upcoming “Street Eats on 66” food truck event, which will donate 100 percent of admissions to local charities.
Lake Havasu Realtors has long raised money and collected school supplies for local schools. Last year, the Association partnered with Lake Havasu City to officially proclaim August 1-7 as Support Our Schools Week.
Lake Havasu Realtors has also created the Lake Havasu Realtor Olympics, a series of events that gives members the opportunity to give back through fun games like bingo, pickleball, cornhole and more. Last year’s Realtor Olympics events raised a total of $26,000, which was distributed to various local organization in the city.
