Make A Difference Day
Make A Difference Day, is one of the largest national days of community service. Celebrated on the fourth Saturday of every October, thousands of volunteers unite in a common mission to improve the lives of others. For over two decades, Points of Light has collaborated with different media to mobilize and celebrate the power of people to make a difference.
Realtors Ramp It Up!
The Northeast Florida Association of Realtors (NEFAR) created a program to provide labor and support to the community by building wheelchair ramps in Northeast Florida. The majority of the ramps utilize funding from SHIP funds for qualified candidates through SHIP. NEFAR members and NEFAR Charitable in conjunction with the St Johns’ Housing Partnership provide the tools, labor and support to build the ramps. All ramps are usually built within one day unless weather related delay is involved.
On Sept. 15, 2014, approximately 100 NEFAR Realtor and Affiliate members, staff and friends came together to create hope for homeless youth by renovating the 25 year old Daniel’s Independent Living Village in Jacksonville, Florida. Funding for this project was through the generosity of our corporate community, NEFAR Realtor members and friends.
