GAAR Makes a Difference

On October 25, 2014, The Greater Albuquerque Association of REALTORS® (GAAR) volunteered at Road Runner Food Bank of New Mexico in honor of Make a Difference Day, the largest national day of community service.

The event began as a challenge from GAAR Affiliate Members to see who could make the bigger difference: REALTORS® or Affiliates.

Over 70 GAAR REALTOR® and Affiliate Members stepped up to the challenge and were divided into their teams.  REALTORS® were tasked with packaging beans and jalapenos, while Affiliates were tasked with packaging cereal.

In just under 4 hours, GAAR REALTOR® and Affiliate Members made a BIG difference!  Check out the results below.

REALTORS® Packaged:

  • 1,888 pounds of beans - 944 bags
  • 7,500 pounds of jalapenos - 6,000 jars

Affiliates Packaged:

  • 2,073 pounds of cereal - 3,024 bags

Thank you to everyone who stepped up to the challenge to Make a Difference!

Special thanks to the GAAR Affiliate Committee for your time, effort, and generous support.
