Making a Difference in Our Communities
As Realtors®, we are all very involved in our communities. NVRA Realtor® and Affiliate members work to strengthen the communities that we call home. Much of our work is accomplished through the Northwestern Vermont Realtors® Charitable Foundation, which works to enhance our communities through financial programs, education, and housing-related initiatives and community activities. The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that supports community initiatives in Chittenden, Franklin, and Grand Isle Counties.
About Dana’s Service:
Dana is on the board of the Shelburne Food shelf. The mission is to improve food security for community members of Shelburne through food distribution, and to provide emergency assistance grants, while preserving the dignity of our shoppers. We are an all-volunteer non-profit organization that relies on donations and grants for funding, housed in the Shelburne Town Offices Building.
Dana also manages a program called Hope Beneath the Tree. Our mission is to work with high school students to provide hope to children with incarcerated parents by providing kids with gifts for the holidays. Thanks to many generous donors, Hope Beneath the Tree has provided over 300 children with gifts annually since 2017. This was possible because of our corporate sponsors and individual gift-givers.
About Jill’s Service:
From Kevin Pounds, Director of A New Place
“We both became involved with ANEW Place as meal providers and evening volunteers years ago, so I’ve seen firsthand her servant-hearted compassion for people experiencing homelessness. Every week Jill volunteers at ANEW Place’s Sober Shelter & Group Home that provides shelter for up to 19 guests. She brings and shares dinner with our guests, plays games, gets to know their stories, and finds specific ways to encourage people in their journey. For many of our guests, Jill remains a source of friendship and support long after they move into their own place. Jill also serves on ANEW’s Board of Directors where she provides experienced wisdom for strategic decisions and keeps us honest about why our organization exists.”
