The Community Engagement Committee builds community partnerships that advance our commitment to improve the quality of life in our service area and promote homeownership, resulting in greater community exposure for our members and enhancing the image of the REALTOR® through increased community awareness.
The committee hosts multiple community service events and drives throughout the year. Additionally, the Community Engagement works with community partners.
For over 7 years, the committee has organized the Dresser Build community service event. During the event, SPAAR members visit Bridging to build dressers that help families from our community with a fresh start!
Bridging empowers people to thrive in their homes by providing quality furniture and household goods for those pursuing housing stability.
Pack The Bus
Every year the committee hosts a Pack the Bus, a backpack drive held during the summer to fill backpacks with supplies for children going back to school. The committee partners with local organizations for the distribution of the backpacks.
SPAAR Hero was designed to recognize SPAAR members who give back and volunteer. Those who are named SPAAR Hero receive $200 for their organizations they volunteer with or run.
Members of SPAAR’s Communications Committee interview and write the SPAAR Hero articles. If you think someone should be named a SPAAR Hero, contact Joe McKinley at email@example.com.
