Community Service as a Team Building Adventure

As a fairly new Team we are always looking for fun ways to interact with our community and recently Hardin County's Repair Affair was brought up at one of our meetings. Repair Affair is our community coming together to make a difference for our low-income elderly and disabled citizens who need help making repairs to their homes. With both skilled and unskilled volunteers, minor repairs and safety issues are mostly addressed.

The event is to be held Saturday June 6th, 2009 and what is needed are the following:

  • Teams of skilled and unskilled volunteers from businesses, churches, etc. to come work on the planned day.
  • Contributions are needed to purchase materials to make the needed repairs.
  • Your friends or neighbors who are in need of some assistance repairing or winterizing their home or help with a safety concern, give them an application.

The day of the event, volunteers receive a T-shirt and a lunch is provided by other volunteers. It is a great way to bring our community together and get to know your neighbors and share your knowledge.

Our team at Marsha Booth & Associates of Remax Executive Group, Inc. has issued a challenge to all other Realtors in our area to form their own team for this event. We hope to get all the different real estate companies involved that day to help support our community. So if your team hasn't signed up yet, email Marsha Booth at marshabooth@remax.net or Sandy Wallace at sandy_wallace@earthlink.net and get your team started. We are excited to do our part and would love to work beside any of you!
