Earlier this year, the National Association of REALTORS® and the Boys & Girls Clubs of America joined forces so America’s kids continue to have a bright future. As the premier youth-serving organization in the U.S., Boys & Girls Clubs have doors open to youth in communities across the country, serving as a “home away from home” for nearly 4 million kids each year during the critical time after school and in the summer.
The Green Mountain Association of Realtors® (GMAR) has launched a fundraising drive to help support local Boys and Girls Clubs.
“Supporting our local Boys and Girls Clubs brings significant value to the real estate industry by extending good will to the communities we serve,” said Lisa Meyer, GMAR’s 2016 president. “As Realtors®, we care about the neighborhoods we serve and those who live in our communities, including children.”
To help raise funds, GMAR is asking that brokerage offices donate a gift basket that values $75-$100 for a silent auction that will be held at the GMAR Annual Meeting on Sept. 22 at Sugarbush Resort.
“An example of a basket could be one that includes treats and specialties from local Vermont artisans, or something fun like a cooler filled with specialty brewed beers,” said Samantha Etesse, who is coordinating the fundraiser for GMAR.
Baskets can be delivered to Samantha at Century 21 Jack Associates, 98 S. Main St., in Waterbury.
Representatives from local Boys and Girls Clubs will be on hand at the September meeting.
