The Waterloo Region REALTOR® community is working together to make a positive impact in our local neighbourhoods.

Throughout the year, WRAR supports causes close to home that are instrumental in making a difference in our communities. During REALTORS Care® Week, WRAR members come together alongside associations across the country to support housing and shelter-related charities. This year, REALTORS Care® Week takes place from November 14th-20th. WRAR will participate in this important initiative by hosting our very own Boots & Coats Drive for two very impactful local charitable organizations – The Bridges and YW Emergency Shelter. For more information, scroll to the Boots & Coats Drive section on this page.

By coming together during REALTORS Care® Week, WRAR members contribute to building a future where safe and affordable housing is accessible to all! Thanks to our collective efforts, not only during REALTORS Care® Week but throughout the year, the REALTOR® community continues to make a lasting impact on these important causes. You can learn more about the ongoing Waterloo Region Association of REALTORS® community initiatives by clicking here

For participation in REALTORS Care® Week 2022, the Waterloo Region Association of REALTORS® is hosting a Boots & Coats Drive in partnership with the YW Emergency Shelter and The Bridges – Cambridge Centre Corporation

We are calling all WRAR Members to take part in this year’s initiative by donating new or gently used winter boots and coats. Members can participate together, as a team, or as an individual by dropping donations off at the WRAR office (during regular business hours) from November 14 – 18, 2022. At the end of the week, donations will be distributed to the selected local charities.
