Being active in the community where we live and work is an important aspect of the Kline May Realty vision. Kline May Realty management, agents, and staff financially support and volunteer their time with many area non-profit organizations including The United Way, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Harrisonburg Downtown Renaissance, Broadway High School Athletics, and the Staunton-Augusta-Waynesboro Habitat for Humanity.
This year Kline May Realty would like to highlight our efforts with two of the causes we actively support: Rockingham-Harrisonburg SPCA, Virginia Paws for Pits, and our local Relay For Life.
Finding Forever Homes
When Taryn Bromser-Kloeden, the SPCA’s Rescue Coordinator, was asked about the Finding Forever Homes Segment, she shared this story: “During our Home for the Holidays event at The Valley Mall, a couple came straight up to Harley, a ten year old pit bull, with huge smiles on their faces. They said they had fallen in love with her on the segment, and Harley went home with them that morning, after spending months at the shelter with little to no interest from potential adopters. This clearly demonstrates how positive the reception from the community has been, and how that positive reception translates into adoptions.”
Relay For Life
The American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life movement is the world’s largest and most impactful fundraising event. It unites communities across the globe to celebrate and remember those affected by cancer. Kline May Realty held several Relay For Life fundraisers during 2015, and the most successful company fundraiser was a holiday decorating contest. Kline May Realty would like to thank Chaz Haywood, Clerk of Court; Krystal Pittington, Sales Manager at Preston Lake; and Erin Chiles, Loan Officer at Movement Mortgage, for judging the event.
Kline May Realty also collaborated with the Harrisonburg-Rockingham Association of Realtors® (HRAR) to raise additional funds for Relay For Life. Those events included a Back-to-School Carnival complete with a dunk tank, bounce house, and face painting. Additional HRAR fundraisers were a chili cook-off, cake baking contest, and a womanless beauty pageant.
