Greater Piedmont Area Association of Realtors present their donations at the Boys & Girls Club of Fauquier in Warrenton on Thursday, Aug. 4.
The Greater Piedmont Area Association of Realtors recently donated $3,895 to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Fauquier.
The association recently conducted a campaign to support four Boys & Girls Clubs in the region: two in Fauquier, along with those in Madison and Orange counties.
Realtors collected and distributed $6,565 in total monetary contributions, as well as sports equipment, games, books and craft materials for each of the clubs.
“We recognize that the Boys & Girls Clubs have doors open to youth in communities across the country, and serve as a ‘home away from home after school and during the summer,” GPAAR President Linda A. Martin said. “Realtors are in the home business and wanted to highlight the efforts of the Boys & Girls club. We applaud their efforts and wanted to give back to the local communities.”
Association leaders visited the clubs to make the presentations Thursday, Aug. 4.
“The Greater Piedmont Area Association of Realtors has gone above and beyond in their efforts to support the work of the Boys & Girls Club here in Fauquier and regionally,” said Lynne Richman Bell, executive director of the Fauquier clubs. “Their spirit of community and commitment to creating opportunities for success for our youth is deep. We so appreciate the initiative that GPAAR has modeled for our kids.”
