Local realtors teamed up recently to help others as part of Realtors Care Week.
Realtors across Chatham-Kent came together in support of the week.
First they were educated by Karyn O’Neil from United Way about the state of homelessness in Chatham-Kent, and how their efforts could be best utilized.
They then banned together as part of the Winter Warmth Initiative to purchase and pack more than 200 hygiene bags to be distributed to many organizations supporting the homeless.
“We are here as Realtors in our community, doing our small part to reach out and help people in need,” Carrie Patrick, chair of the public relations committee for the Chatham-Kent Association of Realtors (CKAR), said in a media release.
The bags will be available to anyone that has a need via Reach Out Chatham-Kent (R.O.C.K.) Missions. The group is known for their efforts in support of many homeless in C-K.
“Chatham-Kent has an amazing ability to step up and help all organizations in need, which is vital to our community during this time of crisis,” said Renee Geniole, spokesperson for R.O.C.K. Missions.
