REALTOR® Care Day -- REALTORS® giving back in EPIC ways!

The 15th  Annual  REALTOR® Care Day is set for Wednesday, June 6, 2018!

And, the main project is slated for the Milo Grogan community located near Cleveland and 5th avenues. This community has a long history in central Ohio and is home to many long-term residents, including 1,100 residents with 430 being children under 18 years old.

We are focused on completing a variety of projects including, exterior landscaping and repairs for a host of homeowners in the community; enhancing an existing community garden and creating a community gathering space adjacent to the community recreation center; as well as doing an overall area clean up. We will also partner with the Milo-Grogan neighborhood and civic association to help provide additional needed improvements for the community.

We are excited about the partnerships formed and fully expect this REALTOR® Care Day to result in EPIC participation, EPIC partnerships, EPIC fundraising and EPIC results!

Central Ohio realty associations are working to identify projects in their communities to further spread the word that REALTORS® care about our communities!

We are working to develop projects that will suit a wide range of skills for all members who wish to get involved. And, to encourage all REALTORS®/Affiliates to come out and help us show how much REALTORS® care and give back to their community in EPIC ways!

You can work at the Milo-Grogan site or choose to volunteer at one of the local area projects (see list below). Register online at ColumbusRealtors.com/RCD.

Shifts are: all day (9a-4p) or half day (9a-12p and 1-4p).
