At Reilly Realtors, we understand how important it is to give back to our community. Two of our agents, Courtney Phelps and Ellen Outlaw, recently sponsored a company-wide canned food and clothing drive. All of our agents and office staff were asked to donate. Proceeds from the drive were donated to the Capital Area Food Bank and the ARC of Texas, which supports Texans with intellectual or developmental disabilities.
Together, the Reilly Realtors team donated about 20 large bags and boxes stuffed full of clothes and household items and about 200 pounds of food. Some of the items donated to the ARC of Texas included blouses, men’s and women’s dress shirts, dresses, and household items such as appliances, cookware and utensils. Donations for the Capital Area Food Bank included baby formula, tuna, soups, ramen, granola bars and canned items such as green beans. The Reilly Realtors team really went above and beyond to give back to their community. This was only the first annual food and clothing drive sponsored at Reilly Realtors, so we’re excited to see how much more we can contribute next year.
If we’ve inspired you to give back to your community, you can check out the ARC of Texas and Capital Area Food Bank websites for more information on how you can donate. Both organizations also seek volunteers regularly, so if you ever have some free time on your hands, consider volunteering.
