Realtors donate to Second Harvest Food Bank

The Lakeway Association of Realtors held a food drive for Second Harvest Food Bank.

The Lakeway Area Association of Realtors recently held a food drive for the Second Harvest Food Bank.

This food drive was held to help supply the Food Bank’s Emergency Food Boxes (these are boxes that are prepared for individuals who have an immediate need and possibly just show up at their warehouse or partner locations for provisions.)

Second Harvest stated that they were depleted of these boxes and provisions within a week of the COVID-19 situation and had not been able to recover.

“It was a great honor to be able to partner with Second Harvest Food Bank to give back to the communities that we as Realtors work and live in. We are thankful for the Realtors who graciously donated food and time to make this possible,” said Heather Walker, chair of the LAAR community awareness committee. “We want to let our communities know that we genuinely care and stand behind you during these unprecedented times through job loss, sickness and need. Your Lakeway Area Realtors support you.”

People of all ages in East Tennessee are served by Second Harvest Food Bank. Their programs are specifically designed to ensure no matter how young or old, no one goes hungry in Second Harvest’s 18-county service area. There are more than 142,000 people are assisted each month.

Lakeway Area Association of Realtors is the voice of real estate in Hamblen, Jefferson, Claiborne, Grainger and Hancock Counties protecting private property rights and homeownership.
