FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Long Island REALTORS® Partner with Habitat for Humanity of Suffolk


Making the American Dream of homeownership possible is at the heart of all that we do at the Long Island Board of REALTORS® Inc. (LIBOR). That’s why on October 16, 2019, a team of our REALTOR® members took time off of work, to spend the day volunteering alongside Habitat for Humanity of Suffolk, helping to build a home for a deserving family in Bay Shore.

Since 1988, Habitat Suffolk has empowered hundreds of families to achieve their dreams of owning a home through their affordable home ownership program. Their goal is to build an average of 10-12 houses annually, building for as long as needed to make sure every family in Suffolk County has a simple, decent and affordable place to live and call home.

In addition to providing volunteer labor, LIBOR contributed $2,500, through the “We’re More than REALTORS®” campaign, to help in the build of the home.  For the past fourteen years LIBOR has sponsored the building of Habitat for Humanity homes across Long Island.   

Our dedicated team of REALTOR® volunteers spent the day installing windows and working on energy efficiency components in the home, as well as outside clean-up, priming the property for the new family to come. “As leading advocates for sustainable homeownership, REALTORS® work diligently to help families achieve the dream of homeownership. That’s why it is only natural for the Long Island Board of REALTORS® and our REALTOR® members, to partner with organizations, such as Habitat Suffolk, who create affordable housing opportunities in our communities.” said Dianne Scalza, LIBOR President.   

Making a difference in our communities and touching lives in the neighborhoods in which we serve is what LIBOR's "We're More Than Realtors®" campaign is all about. The “We’re More than Realtors®” campaign was created by LIBOR’s Public Relations Committee in 2006. Through this campaign, LIBOR supports numerous organizations and charitable community efforts across Long Island and throughout the world.
