September 29 through October 3 will mark NAR’s first-ever REALTORS® Are Good Neighbors Volunteer Days. These days are designed to bring REALTORS® together to make a real difference by serving our neighbors and strengthening our communities. In partnership with NAR, SABOR will be hosting a week of service for SABOR members to get involved and serve their community. SABOR members can join us at any and all events they would like to volunteer at, and there are volunteer t-shirts for members who want to show off their SABOR pride while giving back to the community.
During SABOR’s week of service, members will have the opportunity to participate in projects with non-profit organizations in our community. Our first project will be in partnership with the PTSD Foundation of America on September 28th. The Mission of the PTSD Foundation of America is to bring hope and healing to Combat Veterans and their families suffering from the effects of combat-related Post Traumatic Stress. Our members will have the opportunity to help improve their facility by participating in landscaping and painting.
Our next project on September 29th will be with Meals on Wheels San Antonio. Meals on Wheels’ mission is to promote the dignity and independence of seniors who are in need of nutritious meals, companionship, and Alzheimer’s care. In conjunction with their mission, SABOR members will help sort and package shelf-stable boxes of food to go out to area senior citizens.
Then on September 30th, members will be able to get crafty while making fleece blankets for the shelter animals at the Animal Defense League facilities. The Animal Defense League is a non-profit organization that is a true no-kill shelter for abandoned, abused, or neglected dogs and cats. Their mission is to enhance the quality of life for these animals by providing needed medical care, including spaying and neutering. Don’t worry if you don’t have sewing experience, it will not be required.
Also on September 30th, SABOR members will prepare and serve dinner to the families living at SAMMinistries Transitional Living and Learning Center. SAMMinistries prevents homelessness in San Antonio through a compassionate, holistic approach that brings self-sufficiency, pride, and dignity to struggling families with nowhere else to turn.
Next on October 1st, we will partner with Haven for Hope to freshen up their facility by participating in a painting project. The Haven for Hope’s mission is to offer a place of hope and new beginnings. They accomplish this by providing, coordinating, and delivering an efficient system of care for people experiencing homelessness in San Antonio.
Lastly, on October 2nd, SABOR will join with City Council District 4 for a neighborhood cleanup project in the Solana Ridge neighborhood. This will be accomplished by partnering with Councilwoman Adriana Rocha Garcia.
We are looking forward to serving our community throughout the REALTORS® Are Good Neighbors Volunteer Days and are excited to have you participate.
In addition to volunteering, we are also looking for sponsors for this project. If you are interested in more information about sponsorship opportunities, please contact Patricia@sabor.com.
