Rochester realtor ring day!

Realtor Ring Day 2016 is here! Realtor Ring Day is when real estate professionals across the country ring bells for the Salvation Army in their local communities. 

I'll be ringing the bell for the Salvation Army tomorrow at 3:30 at the TJ Maxx Plaza!  Come see me and support the Salvation Army this holiday season! Every dollar raised stays in the Rochester area and funds Salvation Army programs like food and housing. 

National Realtor Ring Day started next door in North Dakota in 2010 and has spread to 26 more states (and it's growing every year!).  It began as a way to give real estate professionals a way to support a cause very near to their hearts, housing! In the Minnesota and North Dakota area alone the Salvation Army provided:

  • Hot meals served annually: 771,780

  • Bags of groceries given: 186,000

  • Nights of lodging: 381,508

  • Items of clothing given: 204,014

  • Christmas toys given: 148,919

  • People given disaster assistance: 28,923

  • Total people served: 375,514

If you can't come to see me tomorrow and you'd still like to donate, you can give online! Volunteers can raise about $30 an hour which is enough to provide a family with two bags of groceries or shelter a person for a night. 

Or, if you/your company would like to sign up for a Red Kettle shift, find locations in Rochester, Byron, Chatfield and Stewartville and sign up online or call 507-288-3663.
