More than 400 central Ohio REALTORS®, family, and friends cleaned, painted, pruned, and planted as part of the Columbus Association of REALTORS®’ ninth annual REALTOR® Care Day on June 14. Started in 2005, REALTOR® Care Day is an annual day of service to the communities in which REALTORS® live, work, and raise families. In the past nine years, REALTOR® Care Day has contributed more than $250,000 in improvements and repairs and hundreds of hours of service to residents and communities around central Ohio.
“Most REALTORS® give of their time and talents throughout the year,” says Chris Pedon, 2013 president of the Columbus Association of REALTORS®. “But this one-day event allows us to focus our collective energy—as well as those of our family, friends, and colleagues—to make a significant difference in central Ohio.”
REALTOR® Care Day is funded through the REALTORS® Charitable Foundation Fund. Additional assistance is received from many individuals and companies through in-kind donations of money, goods, and services.
