Recently, REALTOR.com® held a voting poll called the Building Hope Challenge to encourage realtors nationwide to vote on which state should receive a portion of their donation to Habitat for Humanity and to campaign for Habitat for Humanity itself. Due to the massive amount of damage caused by Hurricane Sandy, New Jersey won the popular vote. REALTOR.com® is also matching employee donations (up to $25,000) for the Habitat’s Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund.
There are a few different ways that you can do your part, during the giving season and year round. You can get involved with your community’s Habitat for Humanity and volunteer locally or even participate in one of their global programs. You can also donate monetarily directly to Habitat or donate materials to a local ReStore. Athens has a fantastic ReStore at 532 Barber Street, they make it quick and very easy to drop things off. They aslo have a huge selection of items priced very affordably at the same location.
