The Wood County Board of Realtors collected over 160 hats and pairs of gloves in November.
They were donated to the Salvation Army office in Bowling Green.
Local Realtors and business affiliates donated the items during the Nov. 13 WCBR membership luncheon at the Bowling Green Country Club.
Several events took place at the meeting.
After lunch there was the election of the 2014 slate of officers, and directors and pins were presented to the Realtors who qualified as top donors for the Ohio Realtor RPAC fund.
Jennifer Kephart, executive director for Habitat for Humanity, was the speaker for the meeting.
She shared Habitat's vision for helping families get into homes of their own, emphasizing that families who helped with housing go through lengthy interviews and classes with the goal being to "support sustainable and transformational development."
The philosophy is giving a "hand up, not a hand out," Kephart said.
The final event of the lunch was the presentation of a $500 donation to Habitat for Humanity from the Wood County Board of Realtors on behalf of the WCBR affiliates.
The affiliates work with WCBR Realtors year round to assist home buyers and home sellers through the maze of requirements to get to a successful house closing.
