PGCAR Raises $8,800 for Local Food Drive
Prince George's County Association of REALTORS®, the county's leading advocate for real estate and private property rights, held a charity event on December 6, 2018, and raised $8,800 to feed those in need during this holiday season. Over 400 REALTORS® were in attendance to support the event.
REALTORS® recognize that there are always those who are less fortunate than others. "We are so pleased to again support this necessary endeavor," said Association President, Veera Phillips. "We can always take the time to make a difference for someone else."
The Association of REALTORS® and the Prince George's County Public Safety Assistance Program (PSAP; contact Bill Milligan) and other sponsors recognize a need in the community and rally each year to address it.
Proceeds from the event were used to purchase and pack complete holiday food baskets and provide them to those in need in time for the Christmas Holiday. REALTORS® joined other volunteers and elected officials from across the County on December 17th to assist in readying 2,500 food baskets for distribution.
