CONTRIBUTED BY SMDRA The South Metro Denver REALTOR® Association (SMDRA) and its Charities and Community Involvement Committee presented a $1,500 check to Rebuilding Together Metro Denver (RTMD) Board Member Alyssa Collins and Executive Director Jodie Liddey on Friday, August 2, during SMDRA’s weekly Metro Market Pulse meeting at its Littleton headquarters. RTMD is the leading provider of repair services for homeowners in need throughout the seven-county metro area. The money will benefit projects during RTMD’s October Volunteering event in the Sunnyside neighborhood in Denver. SMDRA members as well as members from around the metro area will be volunteering their time and labor to help make improvements to multiple homes within the Sunnyside neighborhood. “The SMDRA Charities and Community Involvement Committee (CCIC) is dedicated to supporting programs and nonprofit organizations with housing related endeavors for the benefit of individuals and families in the metro Denver area,” said Marcel Savoie, SMDRA’s Chairman of the Board. “CCIC has chosen RTMD as the recipient of their bi-annual charity donation. Since 1999, RTMD has helped thousands of low-income homeowners with free critical health and safety repairs. Together, they are ensuring safe and healthy homes and communities while helping aging adults, veterans, and those with disabilities maintain home ownership and age-in-place. We are very pleased to help such a remarkable charity.” The SMDRA Charities and Involvement Committee is helping raise the quality of home life for individuals and families throughout the community. RTMD believes that everyone deserves a safe and healthy home, and it helps transform the lives of low income homeowners and revitalizes communities. The nonprofit addresses what might be tragic outcomes by providing home repairs so these homeowners may continue to live in safe and healthy homes. Through home repairs and modifications, they prevent falls, perform energy upgrades and make safer and healthier homes. For more information visit rebuildingdenver.org.
