Community Engagement

Community Engagement is one of the Four Pillars of SPAAR, and the Association takes pride in helping create better communities to live, work, and play in. Through the SPAAR Charitable Foundation, Diversity Committee, and Community Engagement Committee  SPAAR sees this vision come to life.

Over the years, SPAAR has been involved with many projects, ranging from our annual Dresser Build with Bridging,  to donating funds to Rondo Avenue, Inc. for the creation of the future Rondo Museum, and even partnering with Meals From the Heart and the community to pack over 250,000 meals for local neighbors in need during the Side by Side event.
