IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Realty ONE Group family celebrated their nine year anniversary on May 1 by continuing their commitment to get out and give back to their local communities. ONE Day, an annual event set on the company’s anniversary, was developed to create a better tomorrow by making a difference today through volunteer work at notable nonprofits in their major markets.
“We have a unique and vibrant culture and the introduction of ONE Day allows us that extra opportunity to bring everyone together on our anniversary to celebrate our collective success and each other,” said Kuba Jewgieniew, CEO and Founder of Realty ONE Group Inc. “We’ve grown tremendously over the past nine years, and are now more than 5,000 agents and 50 beautiful offices strong. What better way to celebrate this remarkable milestone than by going into our communities and making a difference together. Not just on ONE Day, but year-round.”
Each geographic area focused on a project centered around families, homes and improving the community. Hundreds of agents and employees came out and volunteered. The firm partnered with Habitat for Humanity in Las Vegas; Rebuilding Together in Phoenix; South County Outreach in Orange County, Calif.; and Houston Food Bank in Texas.
Together, the team improved the lives of low-income families in Arizona and Nevada by participating in a build day, where volunteers made a difference by painting, landscaping, repairing and installing handicap railings and solar. They also helped feed homeless and low-income community members by volunteering at food pantries in California and Texas, where they stocked, sorted and packaged incoming food donations. The team collectively donated over 400 pounds of non-perishable food.
Additionally, employees and agents participated in Bowling for Dollars, a fundraiser in Las Vegas to help cover the family’s medical expenses for a fellow employee’s daughter.
“The goal was to make a difference by helping local community groups, and you truly felt the passion each volunteer brought with them. The camaraderie was amazing and we were grateful to have the chance to work side by side and do something meaningful,” Jewgieniew said. “The day was a huge success thanks to our amazing team members and their giving hearts.”
Realty ONE Group recently established a 501 c (3) foundation, Realty ONE Cares, as an ongoing way to better their local communities. From thousands of dollars in donations to Salvation Army, to the Second Annual Kuba Cup Golf Classic held in Southern California, participation in the Alzheimer’s Walk in three states, to raising money for Nevada’s Cystic Fibrosis Foundation via silent auction and many other events and activities, the Realty ONE Group family is committed to taking action and making a difference.
