Community Relations Committee Serves Dinner at Camp Rap-A-Hope
The Mobile Area Association of REALTORS® Community Relations Committee Members took a few hours to prepare and serve dinner for the campers, staff and volunteers at Camp Rap-A-Hope. Monday, June 3, 2019, a group of REALTORS® started making dinner at 10:30 am with a different group serving at the Camp later in the evening. The committee Chair, Catherine Mackey, said: “Any opportunity we have to give back to the community we work in is special, but the summer camps we support at Camp Grace are dear to our hearts and something we look forward to yearly.” For close to 10 years, the committee has prepared dinner for the Camp, as a way to support the cause and everything they do. Participating in Camp Rap-A-Hope is just one more way for the Mobile REALTORS® to show, “REALTORS® Are Real People Living, Working and Investing in the Mobile Community.” It’s Who We “R®”!
