Realtors® Help Wilmington Foster Family with Yard Beautification Project
Submitted by the Wilmington Regional Association of Realtors®
WILMINGTON, N.C. – On Wednesday, May 7, 2014, several members of the Wilmington Regional Association of Realtors® (WRAR) collaborated on a yard beautification project to help a local foster family that provides care for special needs children. This project was one of two planned this year in connection with a broader initiative by WRAR’s Partners for Affordable Homeownership (PAH) Committee called “I Wanna Bee a Good Neighbor.” The second project will be held sometime this coming fall.
The mission of this initiative and committee is to, “educate Realtors®, lenders, and members of our community on affordable housing options, while helping people remain homeowners,” says Jody Wainio, current WRAR President and former PAH Chair. “In the past, we have partnered with local organizations to repair homes and educate consumers. When presented this unique opportunity, we decided to jump in and assist families by giving them a safer, more enjoyable outdoor area to play in and thrive.”
This entire event was made possible due to the generosity of local partners Star Landscaping, Thorpe Landscaping, American Property Experts, Lloyds Nursery, and Milner’s Cafe. For more info or to get involved, please contact Paige Sammons at 910-313-2015. To learn more about PAH, go to www.wrar.com/pahcommittee.
