Give Thanks All Year Long

Junesgiving is back again

Give Thanks

In November 2018, the Wisconsin REALTORS¬ģ Foundation (WRF) launched its inaugural ‚ÄúTeam Up Against Hunger‚ÄĚ week for REALTORS¬ģ throughout Wisconsin to volunteer at their local food pantry or food bank. This special week will return once again this summer on June 15-19, 2020.¬†

This volunteer week takes place twice a year with ‚ÄúDon‚Äôt be a Turkey‚ÄĚ week in November and ‚ÄúJunesgiving‚ÄĚ week in June. Giving thanks during the holiday season is easy for the majority of us because the holidays tend to encourage us to look inward and be grateful for what we have. But what if we could be appreciative of what we have every day and be charitable all year long?

This is where Junesgiving can help. 

With more than 1,000 food pantries and six food banks serving the state of Wisconsin, there is an opportunity for Wisconsin REALTORS¬ģ to volunteer at a food pantry or food bank serving their community. And the best part about volunteering is it can happen in a variety of ways ‚ÄĒ every food pantry or food bank has different needs. As a volunteer, you may be asked to dedicate your time helping to sort food, clean, or host a fundraising effort to help provide the pantry with certain items for those in need. The easiest way to find out what your local food pantry or food bank needs is by connecting with that organization. To find a food pantry or bank in your community, visit
www.wra.org/wrf. 

In light of the coronavirus pandemic and social distancing in which traditional, in-person volunteering may be difficult, we encourage you to reach out to your local food bank or pantry and find out how you can best help the week of June 15-19, 2020. 

Make this a team-building activity or use it to connect with clients, customers, friends, family, or partners in your network like local lenders, title agents and home inspectors. Challenge another firm in your community to have the most volunteer hours that week or another office anywhere in the state. And of course, share it all on social media! 

No matter where or how you choose to volunteer during Junesgiving, your participation will connect you to your community and help those in need. 

The WRF is a statewide organization dedicated to unifying REALTORS¬ģ to help Wisconsin children in the areas of education, hunger, homelessness/abuse and serious illnesses. Visit www.wra.org/wrf for more information.
