HAAR gives back to the community

At the Hattiesburg Area Association of Realtors meeting Thursday members chipped in to help the Southern Pines Animal Shelter.

Many of them donated cleaning supplies, blankets, towels, and pet supplies to the shelter, others donated money.

The benefit is just one of many community service projects the association conducts throughout the year. Other agencies they have assisted in the past include Christian Services, The Make-A-Wish Foundation and Habitat for Humanity.

Besides the donated items the shelter was given nearly $500 by the association.

"Getting these supplies makes a big difference in our operational cost, said Lara Hudson, shelter manager. "The money we would normally spend on these items can be spent on helping spay or neuter the animals housed at the shelter and provide medical care. So we are very grateful."

The association has several more community service projects planned in the future including a build day for Habitat for Humanity.
