WEEK OF SERVICE

Fall Week of Service:
September 20 & 21, 2018

The REALTORS Care Week of Service is GLAR’s community service initiative for members.  This is when REALTORS join forces to give back to your community.  Projects listed below
=======================================

Get $1000 for the charity of your choice! The Week of Service Committee has set aside three $1,000 donations to be given to a charity selected by the Brokerages with the largest percentage of participation during our Fall 2018 service dates. Brokerages will be broken into three different size groups – one $1,000 donation is allotted for each group.  Eligibility for the $1000 donations are as follows:

  1. Brokerage breakdown – Large category is 40 agents or more, Medium category is 15 to 39 agents, Small is 14 agents or less.
  2. The Brokerage office with the highest percentage of participation in each of the 3 categories listed above shall receive $1,000 for a non-profit 501c3 organization of their choice. (Checks will be made payable to the organization)
  3. Volunteer participants must sign in at their project in order to count toward the total. In the event of a tie, the Week of Service Committee will draw for the winner(s).
