Giving back to the community is a priority for many REALTOR® associations across the state year-round, especially during the holiday season when so many in the community need assistance. Below, we’ve collected a list of charitable-giving efforts throughout the state this month.
If you know of a charitable-giving effort or association event that is not on this list, please let us know down in the comment section!
