WHNT Channel 19 recently covered REALTORS® in Action (RiA)’s efforts to collect more than 200 pieces of winter clothing for the community:
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) — A Huntsville realtor organization hosted a winter clothes drive to support the Downtown Rescue Mission.
Realtors in Action collected clothes at their office in downtown Huntsville over the last month. They brought more than 300 items including jackets, pants, gloves, and shoes.
The chair of Realtors in Action says the organization wanted to do its part to help with the issue of homelessness.
“We have a large population of homeless unfortunately,” said Ginny Brandau, chair of Realtors in Action. “It is something that is, of course, nationwide, but we just felt like, you know, if they had some warm coats, scarves, gloves, socks, whatever… any little thing is a help, and we want to do our part.”
