2011 REALTOR® Care Day!

REALTOR® Care Day, June 15, 2011, is the day REALTORS®, affiliates, family and friends of central Ohio have the opportunity to show their communities REALTOR® care. With careful planning, preparation and the dedication of many volunteers it is amazing what is accomplished in one day.

This year, we project to have close to 400 volunteers throughout the day. As we would like everyone to volunteer the whole day, we do understand not everyone can devote their entire day to these efforts; which is why we have morning and afternoon shifts available for those with a busy schedule.

The primary project for this year’s REALTOR® Care Day will be at Southern Orchards near Nationwide Children’s Hospital and east of Parsons St.  Click here to view map.

CBR is partnering with "Healthy Neighborhoods & Healthy Families (HNHF), part of Nationwide Children’s Hospital initiative, to develop HNHF in the area east of Parsons St. and south of Livingston Avenue. We will be doing the front landscaping at 3-4 homes recently renovated or newly built that are ready for new home owners. The homes are affordable with special financing and numerous green features.

In addition, the main project will be an ambitious project creating green space at the corner of Sycamore Avenue and Heyl Avenue. Where once there was a home too dilapidated to rehab, we will create from raw ground something beautiful……a green space for the neighborhood to enjoy.

Future maintenance will be monitored by Healthy Homes, so it will continue to be enjoyed for years to come. Cleanup projects around the area are also in the plans. Breakfast, lunch, snacks and, most importantly, plenty of water will be available. So come all day or for a few hours.

There will be many other projects around central Ohio spearheaded by area realty associations in the communities where their members live and work. In 2010, over 400 REALTORS® participated in 19 projects to show REALTORS® do care.

Let’s show central Ohio one of the many ways REALTORS® give back to the communities where they live and work. Please join us at the CBR main project or participate in one held on your community. Whether you are a veteran or have never participated, make this your year to get involved. It is a fun day to share with your fellow REALTORS® and affiliates. In one day, working together, we can make a difference. What is important to know is you can work a few hours or all day, we just ask that you get involved.
