GLEN CARBON — The Greater Gateway Association of Realtors raised more than $9,700 to donate to a program devoted to repairs on low-income properties.
GGAR held a music themed trivia night, along with affiliates, family, and friends. The funds raised are going to Rebuilding Together Southwest Illinois, which is focused on providing low-income home-owners with repairs that ensure they are safe, warm and dry in their homes within the Madison, St. Clair and Jersey counties. The repairs are free to homeowners who meet the program requirements.
This year their work day is scheduled April 29. Every dollar donated to Rebuilding Together is turned into $4 of home repairs and modifications.
More information is at www.rebuildswi.org.
The Greater Gateway Association of Realtors serves 1,000 Realtor and affiliate members in the southwestern Illinois region including the counties of Bond, Calhoun, Fayette, Jersey, Macoupin, Madison, Monroe, and Montgomery.
