8th REALTOR® Care Day Ohio Draws Record Participants

Nearly 450 Ohio REALTORS®, family, and friends cleaned, painted, pruned, and planted in June as part of the Columbus Board of REALTORS®’ eighth annual REALTOR® Care Day, helping improve homes in 21 surrounding areas.

Started in 2005, REALTOR® Care Day is an annual day of service to the communities in which REALTORS® live, work, and raise families.

For the main project this year, CBR partnered with Homeport to improve five homes in a low-income subdivision. “We cleaned, repaired, painted, landscaped, fixed gutters, recarpeted porches, and installed a new shed,” said Bob McCarthy, co-chair of the 2012 REALTOR® Care Day committee.

REALTOR® Care Day is funded through the REALTORS® Charitable Foundation Fund. Area realty associations are offered matching funds (up to $500 each) to help fund their community service efforts for this event. Additional assistance is received from many individuals and companies through in-kind donations of money, goods, and services. More than $33,000 was invested to accomplish the 34 projects around central Ohio.
