REALTORS® in Action Service Day is a day where REALTORS® and HAAR members come together to serve their community by participating in numerous charitable events around town. This gives us the opportunity to give back and show the impact REALTORS® make in our area.
The 2019 Realtors in Action Service Day is Thursday, November 5th. There is an array of diverse volunteer offerings throughout the day, and we’re asking members to get involved and add to the rich tradition of Realtor giving in our community.
