REACT’s Amazing Success So Far

Paula McLean, chair of the REACT Committee [Real Estate Agent’s Charitable Task force] has had an amazing year so far.  The Committee is ROCKING under her capable leadership.  As we look to the second half of the year event planning (and our BIG fundraiser Chili Cookoff), we just wanted to give a WHOOOP-WHOOP to this awesome group of REALTORS….  They have worked together on events that allowed us, Berkshire REALTORS to donate just about $12,000 so far this year to phenomenal local charities We also contributed over 250 volunteer hours on behalf of our Berkshire organizations in need.  Next time you see Paula, or any member of REACT, please consider a hearty thank you – ask how you can get involved.  It’s a fun group with lots of ideas and passion – please participate.
