CAMP HILL, PA (October 12, 2018) – The Greater Harrisburg Association of REALTORS® Foundation announces it has presented three $2,000 grants to organizations supporting the greater Harrisburg community. These funds will help advance their housing and shelter-related missions.
Three organizations: Downtown Daily Bread, Bridge of Hope, and Brethren Housing Association, were honored by the Foundation at the Greater Harrisburg Association of REALTORS® Annual Meeting and Trade fair at the Radisson Hotel Harrisburg on Oct. 11, 2018.
