ASHBURN – On February 25, 2020, members of the Dulles Area Association of REALTORS® (DAAR) participated in a Habitat for Humanity renovation for a Sterling, Virginia family in need.

Eleven REALTORS® and affiliate members hung cabinets, installed drywall and painted interior walls over the course of a rainy February Tuesday. The weather wasn’t ideal, but every volunteer face still wore a smile.

The partnership between Habitat for Humanity and the Dulles Area Association of REALTORS® was organized by the association’s Community Service Committee, which plans and executes several hands-on community volunteering events every year.

The committee’s sole purpose is to develop programs and projects that address shelter related community concerns. In addition, the committee selects charities to support every two years. Committee members will volunteer at the charity’s events, lend helping hands for projects and raise money to help the organizations meet their most pressing needs.

Recently completed projects include collecting coats and blankets for Mobile Hope Loudoun, the Loudoun Abused Women’s Shelter (LAWS) and the Loudoun Cold Weather Shelter. Volunteers also collected old cell phones for LAWS. This summer, the committee will busy their hands painting rooms at a local shelter.
