REALTORS® have a reputation for being active in their communities—for volunteering, donating to charities, or finding other meaningful ways to give back. NAR members, in fact, volunteer at three times the rate of the average American (67% to 23%). NAR's partnership with FRN is one of the best illustrations of that philanthropic spirit, with the nation's largest trade association having provided roughly 5,000 pounds of food from its events to hunger-fighting groups across the U.S. since 2019.
Recognizing the intrinsic link between shelter and food security, NAR released a report in the summer of 2021 highlighting some key statistics on the connection between affordable housing and hunger.
All donations to FRN directly support the organization's ability to enhance and increase food recovery efforts that ultimately provide meals nationwide to people experiencing hunger.
