REALTORS® across the country are coming together during the same week to show how REALTORS® are Good Neighbors during NAR's Volunteer Days. Nine local volunteer opportunities are scheduled between June 4th and June 10th.
For the third year in a row, CCIAOR's Community Engagement Group has organized several volunteer opportunities across the region with non-profit organizations who are making a difference on the Cape.
Sign up for a volunteer opportunity (or two!) that interests you and encourage your friends and colleagues to do so as well. We have more locations on our schedule this year and from your interest, we hope to see even more members volunteer this year!
Together, we can make a real difference as we serve our neighbors and strengthen our communities -we hope you can join us!
