National Association of Realtors Partners with Boys & Girls Clubs of America to Give Back to Local Communities | Indian Head Park Real Estate Agent

Indian head park real estate agentThe NAE (National Association of Realtors) knows the how important it is to give back to the communities that their members serve.  The National Association of Realtors announced it will be partnering with the Boys & Girls clubs of America (BGCA) because they want to make sure that America’s children have great futures.

Why did the NAR choose the BGCA?

Boys & Girls Clubs of America is the biggest youth organization in the US.  They have more than 4,100 clubs throughout the US and on military bases across around the world.  There are clubs in every state and Congressional district that serve as a home away from home for almost 4,000,000 children each year during summer break.

By supporting BGCA, the NAR believes they bring a significant value to the real estate industry because they’re extending good will to local communities and neighborhoods.
