Emphasizing that this past year has been especially difficult for charitable organizations, the Prescott Area Association of Realtors (PAAR) donated $4,000 to four local Quad Cities charities at the beginning of December. The donations were intended to help each organization with holiday assistance to those who had specific needs.
Jeff Bashaw, immediate past president of the association, explained that his group is committed to helping build better communities and providing a helping hand for community charities.
Each of these charities received a $1,000 donation: Mayer Meals on Wheels program; Chino Valley High School Family Resource Center; Mountain View Manor, a skilled-care nursing facility in Prescott; and the Prescott Veterans of Foreign Wars post.
PAAR Community Service and Outreach committee members said they wanted to have a big impact on diverse organizations in the greater community. The nonprofit trade association assists local Realtors in providing service and educational opportunities throughout the region.
CEO Amanda Creel also announced in December she would leave the group in mid-January. She has been with the association for four years but accepted a CEO position with the Birmingham Association of Realtors and Greater Alabama Multiple Listing Service.
