Throughout the month of October, members of the Reading-Berks Association of REALTORS® (R-BAR) collected over 3,670 pounds of food and goods to donate to Helping Harvest Fresh Food Bank in Reading, PA.

As active members of the community, invested in the wellbeing of our neighbors, R-BAR Realtors® understand the importance of lending a helping hand to those in need.

“Despite dealing with the pandemic in our area, local Realtors® came through with over 3,000 pounds of food donated to the local food bank, once again showing the membership’s commitment to giving back to those in need in our local community,” remarked Jack Evans, REALTOR® at Keller Williams Platinum Realty and Chair of the R-BAR Outreach Committee which sponsors the annual food drive.

Donating 18.4 pounds of goods per agent, Iron Valley Real Estate of Berks, won this year’s coveted Food Drive Champion Trophy, making this their third year in a row as champion.

Brian Hartman, REALTOR® and owner of Iron Valley Real Estate of Berks, comments, “We are passionate about our careers and even more passionate about the communities we live and work in.”

In second place, donating 12.7 pounds of goods per agent was the John Monahan Group of Kutztown, now a part of Realty One Group Exclusive. And in third place, donating 8.2 pounds of goods per agent was Keller Williams Platinum Realty.

The following offices also participated in donating food and goods to those less fortunate this holiday season: Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, Century 21 Gold, Coldwell Banker Realty, Pagoda Realty, RE/MAX of Reading, United Real Estate Strive 212, Weichert REALTORS® Neighborhood One, and Weichert REALTORS® – Welcome Home. R-BAR would like to thank all its REALTORS® and members who contributed to this year’s drive.
