For the sixteenth consecutive year, the Dulles Area Association of REALTORS® (DAAR) sponsored a Loudoun County Rebuilding Together/Christmas in April project to help an area family make improvements to their home.
More than 30 volunteers donated one day on Saturday, April 26th, to rehabilitate the home of a family in need. “REALTORS®, clients and their affiliates worked side by side to make a difference and bring some joy into the life of a local family.” according to Sue Puleo, volunteer coordinator of the project. This year’s project took place at a home near Bluemont, Virginia.
REALTORS®, DAAR Affiliate members and local area businesses landscaped, installed handicap accessible bathroom fixtures, made kitchen and porch repairs, and cleaned up a home in Loudoun County. DAAR extends a special thank you to project captain Kirk Arant of Arant Construction in Sterling and Mike Furr of F&L Plumbing Services in Leesburg for donating many of the skilled hours.
“REALTORS® care about making their communities strong and vibrant,” said Candice Bower, 2008 DAAR Chairman of the Board. “Rebuilding Together is just one example of REALTORS® making positive contributions together for their community.”
