Hundreds of REALTORS® Volunteer at REALTORS® Rock the Block in Wyandotte County

September 20, 2019 in KCRAR

About 250 local REALTORS® and community partners volunteered
at the fourth annual REALTORS® Rock the Block event on Wednesday to help
revitalize 12 homes in Kansas City, Kan. REALTORS® from all across the city came
together to paint, build porches, landscape and more with the coordination of
Habitat for Humanity of Kansas City.

“In our profession, we work with homeowners and the
community so closely. It just makes sense that we would want to give back,”
KCRAR President Steve Moyer said. “The community supports us and our businesses
every day; I volunteered at REALTORS® Rock the Block because I wanted to show
that support back.”

Moyer kicked off the event with KCRAR CEO Kipp Cooper at the
opening ceremony, where they presented Habitat for Humanity of Kansas City with
a donation of $44,790 to fund the day’s project.

“I’m so proud of all the amazing REALTORS® we have here in
Kansas City,” Cooper said. “This is the fourth year we’ve put on REALTORS® Rock
the Block, revitalizing 50 houses in total, and we never have a shortage of
REALTOR® volunteers who are eager to work and to give back to this community.”

These REALTOR® volunteers began work at 9 a.m. Wednesday,
and by that afternoon, nine homes had been painted, three porches or railings
had been built and installed, ten yards had been cleared and landscaped, and
all projects on all 12 homes were completed.

The event also drew strong support from local law
enforcement officers as well as the attendance of many city, county and state

KCRAR shared gratitude to the industry partners who provided
supplies, water, lunch and other event-related services to support the work of
the volunteers. These sponsors included Certified Radon, Continental Title,
