Habitat For Humanity

On May 9th, 2017, we were honored to be a part of building up our community and touch the lives of others.  
Yakima Association of REALTORS® would like to thank our volunteers that came out to support such a great cause: Lisa Angell, Cheri Daniels, Sharri Bailey, Kelly Murray, Brandy Gardner, Melody Benner, Tiffany Stewart, Javier Cardenas, Jesse Orosco who also brought his two sons, Emiliano and Mileno, Noel Cook, and even one of our Affiliate members Jeff Jorgenson from Wells Fargo. 
What an amazing turn out! 
This is an annual event and it is appreciated that, even with the short notice received so many of you took time out of your day to help.   
I would love to see our volunteer numbers grow as we support such a worth while cause!

The Power of RPAC is working for YOU!
Help us continue our efforts by making an investment in YOUR business and YOUR future.
