Edina Realty helps Habitat for Humanity
On June 17, Edina Realty realtors and employees will dedicate the day to volunteering for local community improvement projects for the 11th consecutive year.
Edina Realty sales offices and departments will select a community volunteer project in which to work that day.
The Edina Realty Alexandria office will be building houses for Habitat for Humanity of Douglas County.
"Community Begins at Home" is the theme for the volunteer day. The Foundation, which was started in 1996, collects funds donated by Edina Realty Home Services' realtors and employees and distributes them to non-profit organizations which provide housing and related services to the homeless. To date, the Edina Realty Foundation has raised more than $5 million.
"We're in the business of helping people find a home," said Barb Jandric, Edina Realty general manager. "For us, real estate reaches far beyond each sale or purchase of a home. Because our work is not just about houses - it's about people."
