The Fredericksburg Area Association of Realtors volunteers help spruce up a house in Stafford County during community service day. SUBMITTED

The Fredericksburg Area Association of Realtors helped in six community service projects throughout the Fredericksburg area May 19. FAAR volunteers prepared a home for exterior painting, painted the entire interior of another home and cleaned up yards at four other locations. The projects took place in Fredericksburg and the counties of King George, Spotsylvania and Stafford.

To support the work being done, the Fredericksburg Realtors Foundation contributed $1,500 to purchase materials. The foundation is a 501©3 nonprofit that serves as the charitable giving arm of FAAR.

FAAR partnered with the 516 Project, a local nonprofit that performs home maintenance and home repair projects for those in need, to perform the work on the six projects. The 516 Project undertook their spring workday with over 100 volunteers and 14 projects completed.
