Local REALTORS® give back to charities in Nova Scotia

Dartmouth, NS – REALTORS® know that there are many individuals across Nova Scotia who are struggling to find affordable housing. As one of the biggest players in the housing industry in our province, the Nova Scotia Association of REALTORS® (NSAR) is in the enviable position of having the ability to give back to our communities. NSAR is playing a part by donating $80,000 to several organizations that support shelters in our communities across Nova Scotia.

“REALTORS® play a big part in their communities, and they are very aware of the housing needs in our province,” says NSAR President, Donna Malone. “We are pleased that we can give back to the communities we live and work in, by making these donations to charitable organizations that support shelters across our province.”  

Fourteen charities across the province are being supported. NSAR CEO, Roger Boutilier says, “REALTORS® give their time throughout the year to support their communities. Most brokerages also help support charities through individual and group fundraising efforts. NSAR is so pleased to be able to make these donations to help those who need it.” 

The donations will be delivered to the charities between December 13 and 20.
