PATERSON, NJ- Seeking to build a positive relationship with the community they serve, and renew pride of home ownership among local families, the Passaic County Board of Realtors (PCBOR) is once again taking part in the statewide Realtors Care Day on September 26.

According to Anika Nahar, Communications Director for the PCBOR, the volunteer effort in past years has been “a great way for members to give back to their communities through improvements including landscaping, outdoor cleanup, exterior repairs and safety modifications.”

“It’s all about paying forward to the community. When a stranger lends a helping hand, it’s different because you’re giving from the kindness of your heart.” Debra Flower, PCBOR’s first vice president told TAPinto Paterson. “It makes a great impact to see people from all areas of life come together and help each other out. Hopefully this project inspires more acts of kindness because that’s ultimately what makes a community stronger.”
