Helping People….Changing Lives

The Chautauqua-Cattaraugus Board of Realtors recently ended their collection drive for cold-weather items, including: hats, gloves, scarves and socks.

Board of Realtors Members recognized a community need for these items and set up collection boxes throughout both Chautauqua and Cattaraugus Counties at various Real Estate firms. Once collected, the items were divided and distributed to three worthwhile organizations: Chautauqua Opportunities in Dunkirk, St. Susan’s Center in Jamestown, and Genesis House in Olean. The Chautauqua-Cattaraugus Board of Realtors plans on making this another annual drive to support the community. In addition to this, Board of Realtors members participated in the Salvation Army’s Angel Tag Campaign this holiday season, with toys collected being distributed throughout Chautauqua County.
