ACAR Lends a Hand to Domestic Abuse and Child Advocacy Center

REALTORS continue to give back to the communities that they live and work in.  On April 20th, ACAR’s Community Outreach and Charity Committee delivered their first round of Necessity Boxes to the Domestic Violence and Child Advocacy Center.  Some of the items collected towards the donation were diapers, baby wash, shampoo, body lotion, cleaning wipes, art canvas and art supplies (that are used for art therapy).  In total over 19 Necessity Boxes, a large carton of cleaning wipes, several packages of diapers/pull-ups, a large carton of facial tissues and one large carton that contained several art canvasses along with paints, paint brushes and modeling clay were donated.

Steve Merkle, President of ACAR, stated that “REALTORS specialize in helping people find homes.   We hope by providing items needed on a daily basis, we can help the recipients gain a sense of ‘home’ no matter where they are.”


The Necessity Box program is a year-long project that ACAR’s Community Outreach and Charity Committee will be working on.  Be on the lookout for our next donation drive.
