2019 REALTORS® Hope for Homeless
The REALTOR® Association of Southern Kentucky holds 2 MAJOR food drives –REALTORS® Hope for Homeless in the Spring (established 2012) and the ‘Glow Run/Walk” in the Fall (established 2014). 100% of money raised from both events is given back to our community in the form of food.
Most people do not know that the “backpack” program stops when school is NOT in session, therefore many kids who receive their only meal at school will not even get a bag of food for the weekend. This means any time school is not in session - Christmas, Spring/Fall break, Snow days, and Summer break – a child in our community will be hungry. Therefore, most of the food which we purchase is distributed directly by one of the Family Resource Coordinators by visiting the homes of these children when school is not in session. Currently we are able to support Warren City/County Schools, and countless others in Allen, Butler, Edmonson, Logan and Simpson Counties.
We also support HOTEL, INC, a community-based non-profit organization which provides Warren County citizens with pathways to stable housing, community resources, building relationships, quality food, and serving our neighbors by stocking the “ManaMart” food pantry. REALTORS® Hope for Homeless has donated hundreds of thousands of servings to HOTEL INC since the start of the event in 2012 and is considered one of the largest food donors, which they can count on to feed families in need.
