Realtors Work With Habitat For Humanity

Housing, as part of the American Dream, has and always will be a passion of the Realtors Association of the Palm Beaches (RAPB) and its members.

As part of their long-standing commitment to strengthen homeownership, one of the annual traditions for RAPB members is donating to and building homes through Habitat for Humanity, a volunteer organization that partners with the community to build affordable homes together.

On Saturday, Sept. 6, RAPB members not only donated $5,000 to the home of a family in Lake Worth, but they also spent the day assembling walls and installing them throughout the house. The home still has a way to go to before completion, but RAPB members are happy to have made a difference.

Habitat for Humanity consists of two different chapters in Palm Beach County that are on pace to complete approximately 30 homes this year. If you are interested in volunteer opportunities in Southern Palm Beach County, call Julia Rowe at (561) 819-6070, ext. 214, or e-mail her at Volunteers are also needed in Northern Palm Beach County. If you would like to volunteer for the northern chapter, call (561) 253-2080 or e-mail
