Local REALTORS® with The Lakelands Association of REALTORS® once again generously donated to provide families in our communities with a meal this holiday season. This year, Realtors saw the need for support in our communities increase as the effects of the pandemic remained and inflation significantly increased grocery prices. Lakelands are proud of local REALTORS® and Brokerages for keeping this important fundraiser alive for over 20 years.
Each year REALTOR® members support housing and shelter-related charities in our communities for REALTORS Care® Week. Housing and shelter-related charities includes refuge, haven or protection that provides or improves the quality of life from hunger, elements, physical/psychological abuse, disabilities, and illness.
In support of REALTORS Care® Week, The Lakelands Association of REALTORS® once again launched their Annual Turkey Challenge, which encourages their members to contribute $25 donations which are exchanged for grocery vouchers, placed in Christmas hampers by local charities, and distributed to families in need in local communities to use as they see fit. This year, 1,488 families in our communities will enjoy a festive meal this holiday season.
A huge thank you to all members and brokerages for their support, as well as to local charities that will now carry out the contributions.
REALTORS® have the opportunity, beyond real estate transactions, to make a difference in our communities every day, therefore Lakelands are proud of their members for showing support during this elevated difficult time.
