On Saturday, April 25, members of the Dayton Area Board of REALTORS®, along with friends and family, will gather in the Westwood neighborhood of Dayton to participate in Rebuilding Together Dayton's National Rebuild Day. Last year, lots of volunteers helped out and had a great time. We'll be conducting light repairs on homes and doing some yardword for those in need. No expertise is required other than the willingness to make a difference in the community. Grab a hammer, paintbrush or hedge trimmers and join us!
To register, click on the link below and follow the instructions. In the "Group" field, simply select "DABR". Tell your coworkers to sign up too and have them bring their family and friends. Choose a shift - morning or afternoon - or volunteer all day. Free lunch is provided. On Saturday, April 25, you'll all have fun and help make a difference!
