On May 6 and 13, CGBR members rolled up their sleeves and fastened their tool belts for a day of volunteering and collaboration on two separate Habitat for Humanity builds in Valatie. Over two day-long building projects, Realtors joined forces to help two deserving local families take a crucial step toward achieving their dream of homeownership.
“Being a Realtor is not just about selling houses; we’re part of the community. We volunteer where we can—in the shelters, in the food pantries, in local foster care,” said Karen Davala of Davala Real Estate in a video interview she created especially for the event.
The excitement and energy of the day was infectious for CGBR members, Habitat volunteers, and the future homeowners alike. The teams not only worked hard to make significant progress on the building of the homes, but also spent time getting to know each other. Here are some of our favorite moments from both build days — photos here of May 13, and a Facebook slide show from May 6. This was a great way to share our values and energy with the community and we look forward to another Habitat build!
