Panama City, FL – We are so excited to launch our new CPARCares campaign! You may have seen this logo out and about already so we would love to share with you what it represents.
CPARCares is how Central Panhandle Association of Realtors® pays it forward through giving, volunteering, and becoming involved in our surrounding communities. It’s how we give a face to our philanthropic works. CPARCares represents the great pride we have in serving others and giving back to our communities. This logo will allow the public to recognize all our many outreach endeavors as well as help generate public knowledge and interest in the Association and Realtors® in general.
CPARCares exists for the purpose of lending a hand and raising funds to come to the aid of those in need. Our Realtors® are constantly looking for deserving organizations to lend their fundraising talents to. Annually, CPAR raises nearly $20,000 for various charities throughout the community and this number has continued to increase year by year! After the devastation that Hurricane Michael brought to our community in 2018, our Realtors® were quick to act in the community and assisted in countless acts of service and volunteer hours. Not only were our local Realtors® striving to help in any way they could, but Realtors® and Realtor® Associations around the country also stepped up to the plate by providing almost a million dollars in disaster relief aid and supplies for Realtors® in our community.
Awe struck at the magnitude of support we received during our time of need, leaders within CPAR set out to create a special committee for ‘paying it forward’. Our Benevolence Committee specifically raises funds for Realtors® around the country who are affected by natural disasters and are in times of need. So far, the Benevolence Committee has raised thousands of dollars in assistance funding and continues to raise funds on a monthly basis.
If you would like to become involved in future CPARCares activities, or know of a deserving charity, please let us know!
