NWMAR Scholarship Program
Each year, NWMAR awards ten $1,000 scholarship to local graduating senior students for college. These students are picked based on academics, involvement and financial need.
Toys for Tots
NWMAR & 95.3 The Rebel have partnered together for the past four years to broadcast live a Bike-A-Thon in December to collect bikes and toys for the local Toys for Tots. Hundreds of bikes, toys and monetary donations have been collected creating a successful event that will continue each December. In 2013, NWMAR and Toys for Tots were able to provide Christmas presents for each of the kids at the House of Grace, a local shelter for abused women and children in DeSoto County.
Community Outreach Committee
The NWMAR Community Outreach Committee organizes events throughout the year in additional to our annual events to help other local charities such as Healing Hearts, the House of Grace and Habitat for Humanity. These events in the past have included a poker run, bunco nights, raffles and more!
REALTORS Reaching Out Award
NWMAR recognizes one REALTOR member each quarter for their efforts in giving back to the community. The REALTOR is nominated by their peers for the time, dedication and involvement they give to a local charity or organization. The REALTOR is given an award and a $500 donation is given in the REALTORS name to the organization in which they help. The donation is sponsored by NWMAR, Carlson Coleman Realty & Johnny Coleman Builders.
Tunica Humane Society
Each year our association collects donations for the Tunica Humane Society, the only no-kill animal shelter in our area. Fundraising events such as “Free CE for the Puppies” are held which offer free continuing education to our members if they bring one donation item for the shelter. Our members also volunteer their time to have a work day at the shelter to help clean the facilities. The shelter is run by one of our REALTOR members, Sandy Williams.
YPN Make-a-Wish Golf Tournament
In September 2014, the NWMAR Young Professionals Network will host its first golf tournament benefiting the Make-a-Wish foundation of the MidSouth. YPN’s goal is to raise enough money to be able to grant a wish in 2014.
