Being named GBAR's Affiliate Member of the Year was an unexpected, but truly exciting moment in my career.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) July 10, 2015
Gentle Giant Moving Company, the Boston headquartered full-service moving and storage company, is proud to announce that their Community Relations Specialist, Kathy Harney, has been recognized by the Greater Boston Association of Realtors (GBAR) as the Affiliate Member of the Year Award Winner.
The GBAR Affiliate Member of the Year Award acknowledges the involvement of industry, product, and service providers for their active participation in GBAR programs, activities, and their support of its mission and the REALTOR® membership. Nominees are judged on volunteer service and personal contributions made in support of the association’s strategic objectives and programming, which may include charitable and community service activities, public policy advocacy, committee service, sponsorships, and support of the REALTORS® Political Action Committee and the Greater Boston Real Estate Board’s PAC.
Harney was named Affiliate Member of the Year because of her instrumental help in coordinating GBAR’s 7th annual Furniture Drive to benefit the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless. Using her organizational skills and professional network connections, Harney successfully coordinated efforts between Gentle Giant’s sales and operations teams, GBAR, and the Mass Coalition for the Homeless. People throughout Massachusetts simply contacted Gentle Giant to schedule a free pick up of donated furniture, which was then collected by Gentle Giant’s professional movers over three days and delivered to the Coalition’s warehouse in Lynn. This was the first time Gentle Giant participated in the annual collection for the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless. The Coalition reported that it was their most successful Drive to date, with 12 full sized trucks being filled to the brim with donated items.
“Being named GBAR’s Affiliate Member of the Year was an unexpected, but truly exciting moment in my career,” Harney explained. “I am thrilled to be able to represent Gentle Giant at GBAR, and I love all the people I get to work with in both organizations.”
The Greater Boston Association of Realtors® is a private trade association with more than 7,200 Realtor® members who specialize in residential real estate in Eastern Massachusetts. GBAR is the largest of five divisions of the Greater Boston Real Estate Board (GBREB).
