Illinois YPN recognizes REALTORS® who gave back

Photos from YPN Holiday Give BackLast week Illinois REALTORS® across the state gave back to their communities as part of the Illinois Young Professional’s Network (YPN) Holiday Give Back campaign.

Thank you to EVERYONE who participated in the Illinois YPN Holiday Give Back campaign and for sharing your photos and stories on Facebook.

The holidays can be very trying times for struggling families. Collecting coats, donating toys and working in soup kitchens are just a few of the many ways Illinois REALTORS® give back to their communities throughout the year.

Thank you for your time and your help. Together we can make this a wonderful Holiday Season. Making our neighbors smile will warm their hearts! – REALTOR® Chris Mitchell, 2013 Illinois YPN Chair

A community that cares is a community that grows.

Holiday Give Back Week may be over but we know your work in your communities is not. Illinois YPN encourages you to continue to do random acts of kindness and share your stories with them. Throughout the year they will be collecting stories and photos of what REALTORS® are doing to give a random smile to the people in their community. E-mail or share with them on Facebook at
