Brunswick County Association of REALTORS® partners with new non-profit dedicated to improving the mental health of local children and teens

On Saturday, March 11, members of the Brunswick County Association of REALTORS® (BCAR) teamed up with community volunteers to get their hands dirty during the BCAR Cares Task Force Volunteer Day at Coastal Carolina Outreach (CCO). CCO is a new non-profit organization in Ash, North Carolina, that seeks to improve the well-being and mental health of local children and teens through nature, art and education.

“Our members are committed to making the community where they live and work a better place and we were honored to partner with Coastal Carolina Outreach to support the important work they do,” said Cynthia Walsh, BCAR CEO.

REALTORS® and other volunteers put up siding on the facility, painted, built a new porch, planted a garden, built a bridge leading to CCO’s teen activity area, cut firewood, cleaned the yard and more.

This event was sponsored by Jim Porch with Floor Coverings International, a BCAR affiliate member.
