Brunswick County Association of REALTORS® supports Samara’s Village’s work to help young parents succeed

In February, the Brunswick County Association of REALTORS® “BCAR Cares” Task Force collected donations for Samara’s Village, a Brunswick County nonprofit dedicated to helping young parents succeed.

“Pregnancy and early parenting can be a difficult journey for anyone, let alone someone who is not already financially stable,” said Cynthia Walsh, BCAR CEO. “Samara’s Village is a fantastic organization dedicated to providing stable households for children in Brunswick County, and we’re proud to support them as they lay down new roots in Shallotte.”

BCAR members donated diapers, wipes, bottles, bibs and other baby items for parents supported by Samara’s Village. Samara’s Village provides an emphasis on supporting the families immediate needs to reduce financial strain. Learn more:
