The Hampton Roads REALTORS® Association is committed not only to protecting and preserving private property rights, but is also passionate about improving life across the region, through volunteer efforts as well as charitable donations.
REALTORS® Have a Heart, with support from the "I am one®" REALTOR® awareness campaign, is an effort of HRRA's Resale Council, which plans special programs for REALTORS® who specialize in residential resale real estate. HRRA's REALTORS® Have a Heart has assisted at charities and nonprofits across Hampton Roads to give back to the community that the association serves.
Past REALTORS® Have a Heart activities have included summer beach cleanups during the Chesapeake Bay Foundation's Save the Bay Day; spring cleanups at the local Ronald McDonald House; assisting in home construction during a Habitat for Humanity of South Hampton Roads "Blitz Build"; cleaning and organizing warehouses for thrift shops run by Habitat for Humanity and the Union Mission, a Norfolk, Virginia-based nonprofit that provides counseling and over 315,000 meals, 119,000-plus nights of shelter annually to the homeless; and door-to-door "bucket brigade" relief efforts to hundreds of Virginia Beach homeowners impacted by massive flooding following Hurricane Matthew (see video below).
The HRRA Foundation is a tax-exempt, 501(C)(3) non-profit organization sponsored by the Hampton Roads REALTORS® Association. The HRRA Foundation is a channel for the charitable and community service energies of the professional real estate industry. The money donated to this foundation, by charter, must be directed to meeting the charitable needs of the community and for education of the public and the real estate industry.
Join HRRA in helping the citizens of Hampton Roads in the fight to end homelessness, educate the homebuying public, and recover from natural disasters.
